Mr Brightside my last thesis film at Chapman University is almost wrapped! This shoot has been challenging and extremely fun to shoot. A 1940's musical love story is not a typical short film that is made. This is by far the biggest production I have shot but my approach to the cinematography really isn't to different to other films I shoot. The biggest difference is bigger locations. This usually means more powerful lights. Getting into all the locations to do photo boards was also helpful. Every film I shoot I put as much effort into it no matter what the scale.
Everyone on the team is doing...
There is only 1 day left before the final voting for the winner of the Fuelfreedom.org video contest is announced. This video was only posted less then 1 week ago and it has about 1500 views. This video was a challenge in a lot of ways such as working with dogs and having no budget. We also only had a couple days to shoot and edit before it was due. This video and the other video submissions is a great example of how you can make powerful informative commercials with little to no budget and time.
Thanks for everyones help sharing and voting for my commercial. I really appreciate the support...

To The Moon tells the story of Emette, a 17-year-old girl who struggles to make connections in her everyday life.

Eventually, Emette decides to build a rocketship so she can visit Benjamin; however, a lack of communication threatens to end their relationship before it has even begun.
A mixture of Dr. Seuss fantasy and sci-fi, To...
New photos from the last few days of shoot. Only 3 more principle photography days and we will be wrapped. Lots of cold nights and long hours.

"Shade of Blue" my thesis film at Chapman University is in the middle of production. Besides a few hurdles we are making our days. This film is about a young man's lifelong dream is to become a working police officer, but his fantasy notion of what a cop is comes into direct conflict with the realities of the job. We are shooting "Shade of Blue" on the Panavision Millennium Super 35mm, 3Perf. Our references for the film are 80's neo noir drama films. We are incorporating high key contrast in most of the scenes. Most of the film is being shot on sticks and a Fisher 10 dolly but some of the more...
