Filmmaking was what started everything off for me. It’s what lit me up inside and kicked off my career in still photography, sort of by accident.
Story telling with narrative, images and audio has been a lifelong passion so I’m thrilled with the new developments in DSLR Video technology. I tried my hand at both documentary and Hollywood (small time DP) but back then they weren’t a good fit for my artist soul. Now we can all follow our dreams!
These are single frames grabbed from lots and lots of video footage. You can see my same compositional style, sense of framing and forced focus at work. (Hint :: this is where I learned those techniques, back when I shot super-16 film. Now it’s digital.)
Both of these video shoots took place over the past few weeks at several, local, Bay Area recording studios. The finished videos will be a documentary style piece showcasing Francesca Simone’s new cover of Lady Gaga’s “Applause” and a short, artsy teaser promoting The St. Valentinez new composition “Eternal”.
