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 big commercial level production I lensed. It was a 12 person crew plus the cast. We used the Xeen cine lenses. The motion shots were accomplished with the Ronin gimbal and Rhino slider. This was also the first time I did a direct to camera address with my talent. […]

Coro: Redefining Leadership

I shot this video with Laura J. Lukitsch. She’s the one that really got me thinking about business films as expressions of company values. Clients will frequently come up with a million ideas they want to put into a video and unless they have a video forward marketing team, they depend on the film production team […]

The b-roll was not filmed at the offices, but at a space we rented via LiquidSpace. The company employees are all playing roles of the […]

DC Tattoo

Sometimes I do projects just for fun. DC Tattoo is a small business located in Daly City. I brought my Rokinon 100 Macro to get close up detail shots and used my Dracast 1000 with soft chimera to get the best skin tones. I was nervous, going in, about the skin looking good. Typically, we […]

3 O’clock

A product overview video like this one is designed to educate customers about new products hitting the market. In this case, a dating app, is not difficult to explain. We could explain the unique features or show the interface but we opted to create a personality around the product. We used props, such as the […]

Criminal by Jean Jackets

I met Millhows at a wedding. He was running the photo booth and I was an assistant videographer at the time. A couple years later, he released an album with his band Jean Jackets. I gave it a listen and said “hey we should make a video” and he agreed. We filmed in San Jose at night. […]

Pring & Turner Capital Group

This video was a collaborative effort with Filmless. I filmed the interviews and the b-roll around the office. The mountain climber and family picnic scenes are stock footage. I like how the interview footage turned out. The lush colors of the speakers environment enhances their credibility as financial advisors. The stock footage b-roll of mountains and […]

Celebrating the Americans with Disabilities Act

I was comissioned by AC Transit of San Francisco Bay Area to produce this short presentation, celebrating 25 years of the Americans With Disabilities Act. Pre-production is everything on a project like this. You might audition 10-15 different people and only bring in 3 or 4 for filming. Then you’ll spend 30-45 minutes with each interviewee, […]

Tradeshift eProcurement

I filmed this project with Todd Dayton of Fallout Pictures. We used a studio rental from Peerspace to setup the infinite white background. Finding a good stage for sound is a challenge because most studio rentals within the city limits are photo or non-sound stages. But we lucked out with this studio because the space […]

If you have a new or innovative product that requires a change in customer behavior, you might need a video to fully demonstrate how the product works. Produced […]

Kathy’s Convertible Shoe

I teamed up with Todd Dayton to film this Kickstarter product video. If you plan on filming in a park, as we did, you’ll want to check about permits. Even if you’re running around handheld, security may still ask you to leave. Luckily, we were able to finish up on the sidewalk using public property. You do […]

Xiao Fei by Technopagan

This was a fun project! I filmed the whole intro with the Elvis shrine, through to the end of the convenient store confrontation. Someone else filmed the epic tribal ceremony at the end. People say all you need is a good story but I disagree. You also need lighting. Without lighting, you will have a flat muddy […]
