What Makes Santa Clara University Awesome?

Students and alumni share, in their own words, what made their experience at Santa Clara’s Leavey School Of Business special. Producing customer testimonial videos is always a balance between producing content that is compelling to your audience of prospective customers and being overly disruptive (in a bad way) on your current customer’s lives. In this […]

Kaiser Permanente on Corporate Edge

The trick to successful customer testimonial videos is finding customers who are passionate about your brand and that their excitement reads on camera as authentic and compelling. It usually comes down to the video producer or interviewer’s relationship to the testimony giver. That is, is the interviewer able to control the tone of the conversation […]

Staypineapple: Naked Experience

This was my first time collaborating with a dance choreographer and a dog handler. I was thankful production booked an extra planning day for us because my dancers and canine talent  needed some time to get to know the space. I also rented a Dana Dolly give some camera motion as we followed the dancers […]

This was my first time working with a professional dancer. I went to a local dance studio and just asked if I could talk to some students about being in my video. They agreed and even gave me a tour.

Rocket Fuel

Some extensive GFX work went into this one! To accomplish the effects, I had to shoot plates of each camera angle. I would shoot the scene with both actor, then shoot the same scene with only the lead actor in it, and then I’d shoot about 10-15 seconds without any actors. Implementing dynamic graphical elements […]

Lens Test! (Rokinon vs Leica)

I’ve been contemplating upgrading my lenses from the Rokinons to Leicas. I invited William, a local AC, over to help me to do some tests on his lenses. I probably could have done something a bit more scientific. If nothing else, I definitely need to invest in a good light meter. I tested 4 different […]

Kespry

I rented a 900mm telephoto lens to film this company’s drone from the ground. I wanted the product to fill the frame with the drone so I knew I had to get something big. I also hired a drone pilot and operator team to capture some drone to drone footage and supplement my ground shots. […]

Corporate Edge Advantage

Some productions need to take place over a couple days. The visual elements of the video are just as important as the interviews or voice overs and ideally these visuals tell and equally cohesive story that compliments the spoken words. When I start working with a client, we typically spend some time thinking about the […]

Submarine Song

I shot this video during the peak summer days of July 2016. I had just bought my Ronin and was still getting used to the mechanics of carrying that extra weight around. My friend James wanted to experiment with filming him singing the song at 2x speed like the Weezer video by Spike Jonze. We […]

Quid Values

This was a refreshing project because the client allowed me to unleash my inner hipster. We shot slightly overexposed against a white wall and promted the company employees to speak to the core values. These projects can be very fun but also exhausting. By the end of the day you feel like you’ve turned your brain […]

Energous: Wireless Charging

Product videos like this can be challenging because of the technical aspects to the storytelling. Its important that the actors use the device clearly and correctly. Its a big help if the client is present on set to ensure everything is performed to branding and engineering standards. This spot was produced and edited by Filmless.

Virool: Grow Your Brand

This was my first big green screen project. Coming from a documentary background, the technical aspects of filming for VFX was challenging but I’m proud of how the final product turned out. This was easily one of my favorite projects from 2016. This spot was produced and edited by Filmless.

Atlas Recall

This was a milestone as the first startup commercial level production I lensed. It was a 12 person crew plus the cast. The motion shots were accomplished with the Ronin gimbal and Rhino slider. If I had to do again, I would have added the Ready Rig for the Ronin it can get heavy after […]
