Lighting for education

April 30th, 2017

All week is prep, then a relatively vast (for small crew) pre-lighting of a capacious, though sepulchral warehouse in Gowanus, then execution of a 4-camera shoot with 8 speakers and a 75-member audience for the Network for Public Education. Directed by the incisive and dedicated Michael Elliot.

Fastidious beauty

April 20th, 2017

Two days of fastidious beauty, shooting tabletop of a top secret medical device with Dedo lights, Arri Macro 90mm glass on Red Weapon, for visionary director Michael Elliot.

Last day of OM sound design

April 14th, 2017

A last long pilgrimage to @mrflannery‘s basement lair, and we nearly extirpate the OMPHALOS sound design with vodka shots and a bacchanalian, celebratory dinner. But completion is evaded, however, as an obscure technical dilemma keeps the last few steps in abeyance. Victory will nonetheless be ours soon.

‘Occlusion’ unblocked (finally)

April 6th, 2017

A tune in 5/4 for the cinema-musical, completed at last after nearly 3 months of tinkering. Listen here.

A message you will never see

April 3rd, 2017

The alarm pierces the quiescence of sleep at 2:15am, and by 6am crew and I are loading in to an undisclosed corporate headquarters in White Plains, NY, to document the earnest admonitions of a massive and successful company’s message to their plethora of employees, a message you will never see from a messenger you will never know.

Aquatic/locomotive pilgrimages

March 23rd, 2017

OMPHALOS conform, and the fastidious punctilious, continues through the weeks of 3.13-3.20. On 3.23 I take a perilous aquatic and locomotive pilgrimage to Atlantic Highlands and the basement lair of the polymath @mrflannery, and we dive deep into sound design.

Airplanes + Amira and Cabrio glass

March 9th, 2017

In Atlanta, or I should say, circling the Atlanta airport, shooting planes and outstanding Delta personnel for my first-fly airline on the Amira + Cabrio glass.

Only abandoned

March 1st, 2017

VFX conforms continue apace for OMPHALOS. Down to the fastidious punctilious, the scavenging in the dark for missing frames, the comparing of color space and imperceptible exposure shifts. How much is too much? What is vigilance and care, and what is obsession? ‘Poems are never finished, only abandoned,’ lamented Paul Valery, and I keep his words as a beacon.

Karen Elson magic

February 24th, 2017

DP-ing a tremendous project in Tampa, Florida with super talented chanteuse and supermodel Karen Elson. Two days on the beaches, much with the Red Weapon on a gimbal (Cooke Panchros sweeten the deal) and a just absolutely delightful crew. Few shoots of late have felt so magical. Thanks.
