I was recently asked how long I had been doing film professionally. What most dont know here in LA, is that the first 9 years were in broadcasting. Through this crazy journey I have been blessed to shoot things that most will only ever dream of doing. It’s tough to be 30 and get the creeping thought that some of the greatest things I’ve done, could be behind me. At 24, I was the youngest #cameraop in that locker room by almost twice my age. The dedication and work that it takes to get there, and then the LUCK, to be with a team, or in a city that hosts that event. It seems unreal.

It’s even harder then walk away from it to move to a whole new city, and get coffee for strangers because you want to tell stories to help change the world. Some people may never truly understand this. But is that it’s not the first time. As an immigrant, I had to start from zero before. And so when I think of that, and look at my life now, I realize, I have what it takes to make it, I’ve done it before. Knowing I have conquered my own fears before. Gives me the encouragement to look inwards as I begin a whole new journey. I’ve been feeling so down recently, and sometimes unsure if I could get back up, but what motivates me right now as the world sits still, is you.

So to all of you wonderful creators out there, who are trying to make something out of nothing, to those who risk their lives to inform, to those who spend 15 hours, 7 days a week working on your dream, to those skip the party to learn and grow, just have the tiniest edge in this game, to those who, write, shoot, edit, color, sweat, bleed, share, create, and do. To those who are obsessed with creating, obsessed with giving people a tiny escape, or educate, or helping the masses realize when something is wrong, to all of you story-tellers, and to all of you amazingly brave ones, who need the money to survive, but you do this because you love it, not because you want to get rich; Thank you!!! You passion inspires me!!! And I hope I can do the same for you!!!

Thanks to those who have believed in me and continue to do so. This is for all of you, I love you!!!

Tryin to beat the covid-blues with masks on and a quick fun shoot with the awesome @whoisindigo. This girl has some pipes too, so keep an eye and ear out for her vibey tunes.

Thank you chica for working with me on this. It brightened up my day and got me a bit out of my funk. Hope I was able to do the same! 🔥🙏🏼🔥

Had the privilege to shoot a promo for @newamsterdamnaturalsla with @offsetyrn from @migos a couple of years ago. It was amazing to see the care and love they out into each plant there.

I'm not going anywhere. I hope. It's been an adventure. We took some casualties over the years. Things got broken. Things got lost.
But I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

«| C A L L I N G: All my 🎥 #DP 🖥#Editor and 🎞#Colorist friends. I'm working on a project where, based on the location, the answer seems to be a day for night shoot (never done d4n before). The look if possible would be a as similar to what #JohnSesle did on #FuryRoad did but with a skeleton crew (I know, I'm out of my mind, but again, I'm talking look, not content). The post is my test 1 with no crew just me and my talent. So far, I can already tell I'm 100% in need for some diffusion, but all I have access to is 2 6x6s and a 4x4 from my own grip, and not much more. So, 1. On camera settings: over or under expose? (shooting 2.5k raw at 92fps, 12bit) 2. Any particular LUTs worth looking at? 3. Any coloring things to pay attention to, in shooting 12 bit and still getting some banding. Thanks guys!! |»
