This past weekend I Directed and DP’d a short film titled “Brother Sister”, which was shot on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera (EF Model).

I just finished post production on a music video for I directed for “The Jessica Stuart Few”. The video was shot in one day earlier this month with a RED Scarlet and a skeleton crew. The Scarlet was a great little camera – really a lot like the Epic but without all the bells and […]Read more →
Going into production on my second feature film “Splitting Bethany”, I had a tough time deciding which camera to use.
