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. […]

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 […]

Some extra shots provided by Eric Brown. “Joshua & his crew were excellent! They listened to our requests and helped make the process easy. We are thrilled with the […]

Narrow Gauge Inn

This was my first time working with a slider and Glidecam. I had just bought the Canon C100 mark I camera and I took a little road trip with my friend Eric Brown. We stayed overnight here and filmed a little Yelp spot for it in the morning. Very cozy little getaway in Yosemite!

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.

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.
