US Grand Prix winner, Tai Barrymore and Sun Valley local, Ben Parker give their take on the Dollar Mountain Terrain Park.
I signed my first contract (written by myself) with Sun Valley Co. to create 11 videos this season. They will be focused on skiing, snowboarding, and telemarking. The goal of this series is to appeal to the younger market. This point of this video was to capture the opening of Seattle Ridge area. We shot for a few hours and that evening I turned this edit around.
Pete Whitehead commissioned me to produce photos and video for a property he has listed.
I surround myself with artists and when my best friend Ali mentioned creating a video I was all in. Ali and Matt are dancers from Cornish College of Art and I just let them do their thing. There was no story boarding, no real vision, just create. And it felt good. Check it out.
Here is my first commercial and it will be airing on local TV.
Here is my first time-lapse video with the Canon 7D. I am pretty happy with how everything turned out but realized that I need to tun off the auto focus. You can see the frame pulsing in a few shots.
The whole time I wish I had five or ten cameras to capture as I was finding spots every where to shoot from. Silver Creek is incredibly beautiful. At least I had a go pro. Its angle is the wide and high one.
I also recorded the audio on my iphone.
More to come as I am off to shoot!
My mom broke her leg and foot while riding a bike in San Fran. Major bummer but I got ahold of the Xrays and CT scans. I have always hailed the House into as one of the best pieces of vusual art. This was inspired by it.
I took a trip down to San Francisco to learn more about studio lighting.
I spent three days at Pixel Corps which shares a space with Twit.
If you haven’t noticed I typically use natural light as my main source. This workshop was great because I only worked with artificial light. I learned how to understand and control light temperature. Not only did we work with light we recognized shadows. Over all this class made me comfortable working on a set.
We also talked about the latest gear. Here I am with the Red Rock Micro shoulder rig.
Oh and I shot with the RED EPIC…No Big DEAL
After the workshop I picked up a job at Sales Force.
I covered an interview and created a few videos. This one was for their newsletter. I hope to continue working with them as I would like to spend more time in the Bay Area.
The next day Pixel Corps invited me to shoot a employee showcase video at the Quintessa Winery. It felt great to apply all my new knowledge on these two shoots.
Here we set up a motorized slider and captured a timelapse over two hours.
I will try to get ahold of the footage.
Then we set up a c-stand tripod way up high in a tree for another timelapse of the workers picking.
