I make a point not to post about rumors often on this site, however in the past few weeks many credible sources have pre-emptively stated that Canon will be releasing their C300 Mark II before NAB in April of this year. Although there has been no official announcement or statement from Canon, where there’s smoke […]Read more →
When I first launched this blog, I never could have imagined how quickly it would grow and how many filmmakers that it would help every day. It’s been just over two years since my first post, and since then the site has changed and improved substantially, and I’m very happy to say that there are more […]Read more →
If you’ve been following my site over the last few months, you probably know that I am developing a feature film – currently titled ‘Ivy’.

The Lumix GH4 and Sony A7S largely stole the spotlight, with both cameras offering incredible image quality, 4K capabilities, and loads of other great video features that got filmmakers everywhere excited… But one camera that hasn’t had as much buzz as we’ve seen […]Read more →
Earlier this week, the highly anticipated short film “ANOMALY” (directed by Salomon Lighthelm & Dan DiFelice) was released online for free, and it pretty much took over the internet. Within minutes of it’s release, the film started racking up thousands upon thousands of views on Vimeo before eventually getting staff picked and shared on countless sites and blogs […]Read more →
As many of you know, I am someone that is particularly obsessed with the ‘film look’. Much of my directorial work is narrative based, and as such I am naturally drawn to a more cinematic look as it is often conducive to the dramatic stories that I like to tell. And although I am far […]Read more →
There is a very strong argument to be made that ‘90% of directing is casting’, and that same logic could be argued for the pre-production process as a whole. While many Directors crave their moment on set with the actors and crew, it’s the amount of prep work that they’ve put in before hand that […]Read more →
