I was the 2nd Unit Director of Photography on Victor Crowley, the latest installment of director Adam Green’s popular “Hatchet” horror series.
This is a development teaser for a film called Take-Out Girl, which I shot and edited earlier this year. I was inspired by the makers of Tangerine to shoot this teaser on the iPhone. I would probably never use a phone to shoot a feature film, but I was impressed by how well it performed. It was possible to shoot quickly and discreetly on location and allowed the actors a lot of freedom during takes.
“Christmas Morning” was one of the first things I worked on this month after relocating to Los Angeles, and was a reunion of sorts with old friends from Florida, like director Ben Rock, writer Bob DeRosa, and sound mixer Jeremy Gilleece. “Blair Witch” director Dan Myrick makes a cameo appearance, as well. I was the gaffer on this short, and had the pleasure of meeting and working with DP Mike Mickens and producer Liam Finn.
I made this mini-doc to help support the release of a new album of jazz music by Tom Luther Quintet, which enjoys a line-up of fearsomely talented musicians. Due to be released in May 2015, “Necessity” is their second album together.
