Wedding Reel 2015

I don’t do a lot of weddings but when I do, I like to work with Cinematt or IQ Videography. We have a shared interest in capturing the people’s weddings as they will remember it. It takes a special talent to balance the objective with this kind of subject matter. No two weddings are exactly alike and it’s just […]

Joe Bisbiglia

Joe is a criminal defense lawyer. One of my favorite clients I’ve ever worked with because he brings such a positive attitude to the set. Filmmaking is truly a collaborative process and the success or failure of a project really depends on everybody’s commitment to good content.   We wanted to do something unique from the […]

Section 21

I filmed this rap music video in downtown Oakland. For these types of videos, it helps to have multiple cameras because it helps in matching cuts. When you cut from a wide angle to a close up, unless the subject’s actions are very closely matching, the viewer will pick up on the inconsistencies and will be […]

Cucina Verona

When I make small business profile videos, I like to place them in context of the community they serve. And this little Italian joint, Cecina Verona, is very much a member of its community. The bar is regularly crowded with locals and local musicians take to the stage to entertain diners. [ylwm_vimeo height=”270″ width=”495″]101033808[/ylwm_vimeo]

E&B Auto Repair

Some locations are just difficult to light. A mechanic’s garage, for example, is tricky because you don’t want to be swinging a bunch of cable everywhere. There are a million ways to hurt yourself in a garage so you try to minimize your exposure to risk.  That’s why I brought out the Westcott Icelight.  Its […]

Hookah Palace

This is pretty much an experiment with lighting. I think every cinematographer loves to play with smoke. Its just really cool when the light hits it right. This is the first video I shot with the Westcott Icelight. Can’t recommend that product enough because its easy to hold in your hand and it puts out a […]

Creativity In A Connected World

I filmed this round table discussion for international design consulting firm Design Partners. The goal here was to capture spirited discussion between colleagues.  I’ve since gone on to replicate this setup with Deloitte.

Every now and then I’ll do something just for fun.

Eric The Painter

I met Eric de Barros along 16th street, painting one of the Victorian houses. I took a seat next to him and just watched him paint. Inspired, I asked if I could make a film about him. That evening, we met up down by the Ferry Building and I watched him paint the view of […]

Psychic Reality

When you walk into a psychic shop, you’re probably not looking to buy some material things. You’re looking for a metaphysical experience. And this non-material value proposition isn’t exclusive to the psychic shops, either. A bakery could also possess some of these existential assets. I had Twin Peaks on the brain when I shot this.
