ESPNU’s Road Trip

4 10 2011

Look Ma! I’m on the teevee!

Had the pleasure to work with Beaudry Film works this past weekend on their show Road Trip for ESPNU. The Show will be airing this Wednesday at 6:30pm eastern time on ESPNU(its usually at 7:30 but this week there is a schedule change).

Here’s the camera man, Robb Shaw and myself after getting rained on in 40 degree temps, aka not so fun. But other than that, an awesome crew and a good time hanging around Blacksburg and VA Tech!

August Photo Dump

20 09 2011

Can’t really come up with any good subject to post on but I’ve been sitting on a good bit of photos, so here they are!





Gettin Xtreeeeeeme!

2 08 2011

A few weeks ago I got a call to do sound on a segment for TLC’s Extreme Couponing show. If you aren’t familiar with it then let me explain. The subject goes crazy with couponing, to the extreme! They go to the market and fill up like 8 buggies and only pay like $25 for all of it. Yeah, its pretty nuts to witness. And it takes a looooong time to film it… And like most gigs I always try to learn a few things for real world usage. But will the manglers go extreme with coupling? Probably not, but I do have a small stash right now and I’m just waiting for the deals to drop!

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.

bag slate for DSLR timecode work

3 06 2011

One thing I’ve been pretty active with is the whole DSLR movement. I did a post a while back about using a DSLR, separate recorder and plural eyes to sync in final cut pro. Thats been a pretty easy deal for most productions but now I have devised a new way to get all technical with post syncing that involves no need for a plugin! All it takes is just a quick glimpse of my bag slate for camera while its rolling and you’re good to go. Here, ladies and gents, is my bag’s mini timecode slate:

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!
