VIDEO

So here are some examples of our video work:

This is an editing experiment on narrative film structure–mostly for fun and obviously not my video/audio work–just my mash-up of two films to demonstrate a point about narratives. The copyright of the source material belongs to the respective entities that own it.

 

These are some cuts from our second feature film shot on our Red One when the Red was hot off the griddle and we each had to pioneer our own deliverable and color correction workflows. Here I use a Cooke 20-100 and a Zeiss 32mm.

 

This is a teaser for our hang gliding doc, shot on a 7D with a 24-70 (L-series) and an HVX. Much thanks to Mike Meier at Wills Wings for the insightful interview and access to their amazing factory floor in Orange, California and to Mitch McAleer for his wild perspectives as well!

 

This is a color correction sample of Red One raw footage from a shoot we did at a hospital (Cooke 20-100).

 

When we got our Red Epic in; we needed something to test it out on and shot this with our Century Optics 17-35 for a different hospital.

 

Here is some art and After Effects for our book promo.

 

This is a million dollar video, 1.25 million to be exact. This was some test footage I shot using the HVX200 when it first came out in 2005/6. I also used a Redrock M2 35mm lens adapter and a Zeiss 85mm lens. This is a million dollar video because this footage closed that many deals-worth of camera sales for myself and my associates (and this is more than the dealerships sold in Boston in the same time period). It’s not much to look at now, but back then this camera was leading the HD revolution for the prosumer market. And of course, it wasn’t the video itself that sold the cameras. Everybody was doing camera tests, but camera test videos do not sell cameras: it was the demonstration¬†that we could become¬†cinematographers and filmmakers with video. This video was all about selling the magic of the dream factory, not the chip. That is why this video sold cameras. (This video also sold its share of high-end digital cinema projectors.)

 

This is an old experiment in cloud building with After Effects.
