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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Miller’s Landing

I could have spent a whole weekend here. Great weather, great people, surrounded by fantastic natural beauty! The hospitality industry has great opportunity for video storytelling.

We are thrilled with the outcome, it’s a […]

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.

Sudden Impact

My profession gives me opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people. And Frank was a pleasure to hang out with. He told me about how he breeds dogs for hunting. Frank’s Windshield Repair & Bloodhound Kennel sounds like a Tom Wait’s song doesn’t it? And like me, his profession allows for him to meet […]

[ylwm_vimeo height=”270″ width=”495″]73591750[/ylwm_vimeo] This is a Yelp video I did for Hog’s Breath Inn. I guess Clint Eastwood used to own it and he still comes by now and then so they hung up a bunch of Clint Eastwood pictures.

Jade Bistro

All video is a collaborative effort. This truth is especially true with these low budget projects. With Jade Bistro, one of the co-owners doubled as the food stylist and I think his efforts really paid off! [ylwm_vimeo height=”270″ width=”495″]70301141[/ylwm_vimeo]
