Risky Maneuvers

13 06 2011

I constantly find myself in risky situations, controlled of course! I’ve went from walking around a farmers market, shooting guns, crazy chemicals, giant magnets and various other biohazards all in the past week.

The Art of Rolling Capture

5 05 2011

One thing I enjoy doing is filming action sports. Its not something I do as much as I used to, but I always jump at the opportunity to film some bikes and my buddies. Well, Props Visual, a bmx specific video magazine, featured a couple of us bmx filmers and asked us about our filming boards. Some readers might not understand such jargon, let me explain: When filming bmx/skateboarding its very common for the filmer to ride on a skateboard to get those cool low angle follow shots.  Such shots require a somewhat enhanced skateboard, a “filmer board” per se. Nothing more than a slightly larger skateboard with slightly fatter wheels.

here’s the link to my interview on Props’ site. I must give “props” to my buddy Terrell who put this together. However, I must call Terrell out for once using a handheld mic in a video that wasn’t plugged in and only used on camera mic. tisk tisk Teo!

Workin for the hotbar

25 04 2011

Had the privaledge to work for one of my favorite companies last week, Wholefoods out of Austin, TX. They were featuring one of their new stores here in good ‘ol NC, north Raleigh to be exact and wanted to show off some of its new green features. So we shot a ton of b-roll and about 10 employee interviews highlighting certain features of the store. The crew was Matt Moore on camera(af100), Tony Collins aka “t-pain” on pa duties, me on sound and Kate was producer(she works for wholefoods). Tony snapped this pic below.

And the highlight? Hot bar for lunch! om nom nom!

Windstream Commercial

22 02 2011

Last week I was hired to do production sound on a Windstream Commercial, famous for the “Lifetime Price Guarantee”, which I heard very very often, along with, “I quit cable!”. The production company was out of NYC and came down to Charlotte for the shoot, which was at an awesome studio. I think we did around 8 customer interviews and some one liners from the Windstream girl, Meghan.

Tech nerd details: shot on AF100 and 5d MKii. sound was 552 mixer/recorder with lectro wireless on talent and sennheiser G2 wireless for camera hops. Comtek system for client monitoring.
