I’m in a commodious Airbnb in Austin watching the final fight sequence in OMPHALOS and making remote tweaks with our VFX artist in Bay Ridge.

EPK shoot in Ojai

December 3rd, 2015

Back to stunning Ojai to shoot an EPK for the dexterous and amiable Mark Heyes and Phil Salazar. Good to have dirt underfoot after the ersatz universe of Beverly Hills.

IWC flagship event shoot in Beverly Hills + macro forays

December 1st, 2015

Shooting for my staunch perennial IWC Schaffhausen in Beverly Hills for their Rodeo Drive flagship store opening. It’s another 22-hr shoot/edit/score. I know I’m not in Kansas anymore when I begin making short, mid-movie-making forays to the macrobiotic resto two blocks away (lined three deep with identical silver Priuses). Watch the completed video here.

The documentary for which I shot much, RED UMBRELLA DIARIES, premieres at IFC Cinema in New York. Congrats to David Kornfield and Chris Fiore.

The art of the line cook

November 4th, 2015

Back to an old stalwart: shooting CHOPPED for the Food Network. I’m the DP on the biopack team (since 2009), and the hook in the job is the chance to interview chefs—a métier closer than one would guess to film production, for its assiduous hours, requirements for time-crucial execution, and communal effort, yet martinet hierarchy.

Midtown perch

Under a capacious and swanky tent shooting a luncheon with Public School for IWC Schaffhausen, concurrently premiering a truncated version of these videos.

September 30th, 2015
