Archived Livestream video of the “Impromptu Critics” hosted by Steve Weiss and Philip Bloom during the 2012 NAB. I’ve been itching to write a post about my NAB/Critics experience for the past week, but I’ve had to delay things a bit due to the production of a short film I’ve been working on. I’ve wrapped Read More

I wish I had more time to blog about my experiences at NAB. I had an amazing time visiting with my friend Thomas Bernardin who shot the short just above. I love Thomas’ eye. If I was shooting at his level of creativity at his age no telling what my work would be like. I’m Read More


The Clues To A Great Story

March 19, 2012 in Guest Video — 2 Comments

I get caught watching movies with my 3 and 4 year old daughters from time to time. If you’re a parent you know this can be a complete drag. Not because it’s spending time with your kids, but because the movie and television shows created for this age range can be mind blowingly boring. I Read More


Product Shoots

Me and my Dr. Z in action. This is a product shoot I did for myself. I’m selling my amp and thought I would do a bit of practicing using a slider. Most of my commercial work is product demonstrations. Ranging from 20 foot umbrellas to industrial lifts. The challenge in shooting stagnate objects is Read More

My first dramatic short shot with the Sony PD-170. This was shot several months before I got my hands on a Canon 7D. This isn’t a bad piece, but the image quality is no where near the film look of a DSLR. Josh’s Story is the first short I shot with the Canon 7D. Notice Read More

I’m constantly looking for inspiration and today I ran across this video on Phillip Bloom’s favorites page on Vimeo. It’s a touching story of a high school cross country team pushing to win a state championship for their coach who’s suffering from ALS disease. This story has great visuals, but even better it has a Read More

This is a story I’m in the process of working on. I’ve got about a third of it shot, and I’m still re-working the script for voice over. Not to mention this is a very rough cut! From the beginning I wanted this project to have a bit of a vintage vibe to it so Read More

Leaders In Action

This is the most recent video I produced for One Life Church. Austin Maxheimer, the small groups leader, approached me with a very simple concept for the video. The idea was to show Life Group leaders at work and leading their groups. What Austin wanted to communicate is the “why” these guys lead a Life Read More
