Frequently Asked Questions
What do you shoot your films with?
Currently I shoot with the RED Scarlet-W and RED Epic-W for commercial and film work. Most everything shown on my site has been shot on RED. For any aerial work, I shoot with the DJI Inspire line or FreeFly Atla line. Still are captured with the Canon 5D Mark IV
How do you come up with the concepts for brand/commercial films?
It starts with finding out your message. What do you want your audience or market feel and walk away with after watching your film? Once we find that out, together we come up with a unique concept that fits your message. I always want to showcase the brand in a way that is true to them.
Do you work with a crew or is this all just you?
With concept design and pre production planning, for the most part you would be dealing with only me. Keeps things simple that way. However, depending on the scale and scope of the project, I do have a trusted crew of people for filming days. From PA's and Gaffers, to Light Techs and Sound Engineers. My goal is to have the right people on set for the right project. Not to just bring a crew just to bring a crew.
We all have some sort of message or story we want to get out there. We all have something we want to say. My goal is to convey that message. To help your audience not just see it through film, but to leave feeling that emotion and that story. Leaving an impression on them so that you can stand out and be memorable.
I am beyond in love with what I do. This work gives me such joy and such purpose. I am so humbled that my job is to create films that inspire and move others.
