Been taking some time off business posting enjoying life and taking on some hobbies. This shoot was nothing crazy technically, but these shoots are fun to be a part of. This was an episode of a Doc talking about Metallica and the video wall live stream concert they did during the pandemic. Dan is the creative director for Metallica, super cool dude and was nice being able to shoot locally too since I travel so much.

Great shoot with  and  in Idaho this last week. Made lots of pretty pictures together ❤️

Great shoot with for DAT Freight and Analytics.
You’d think finding a place to pull U turns with a big rig would be tough, but our boy Eddie came through hard.

New work released today for

This project was written almost 2 years ago and finally came together and into production in February 2021.

USPS not only lost the super 8 camera I ordered for this project, but 20 rolls of film that were to be delivered several days before the shoot. Ended up driving through LA to pick up film and made our way to Arizona. The camera I borrowed for the shoot couldn’t turn the modern film at a consistent frame rate or for very long so I was only able to shoot 5-10 seconds at a time. It felt like it was all going to fall apart.

I immediately got the film processed and scanned, and to my relief I had plenty of performance to work with even though off speed inconsistent frame rate was going to be a nightmare to sync.

Months later the narrative came together and then I ordered 50 rolls of mystery family film on eBay. Luckily there was gold on the rolls and it all came together!

Thanks to my few crew/cast members who were a part of making this possible!
