    The Last Gold – L.A. Film Festival Selection 2016

    The Last Gold is the USA Swimming-produced documentary spotlighting the 1976 women’s U.S. Olympic Team and the East German doping scandal. Considered one of the greatest untold stories in Olympic history, The Last Gold details the heroic efforts of the women’s 1976 U.S. Olympic swim team as they competed against the systematically-doped East Germans. After an entire competition of disappointing results, winning no races and facing critical media that heaped on additional pressure, the U.S. women rallied together to do […]

    The Last Gold – underwater selects

    Over the course of two days, I filmed underwater footage of our swimmers with fellow DP Anthony Lenzo of ASL. We have spent years together as collaborators and this was an incredible opportunity to work together once again. I choreographed movement above water and created these sequences which were reflections, if not dreamlike memories from our female swimmer’s psyche. They were used as reflective transitions throughout the film.

    Kermit the Frog – Note to Self

    Well, this was definitely a fun one. Producer Paige Kendig from CBS’ Note to Self series asked us to shoot with her in New York’s Central Park – with Kermit. What a fun experience. Everyone on the crew was 5 years old again for the day. Listen to Kermit as he gives you advice on learning through life’s lessons. Even If you don’t have kids, this will be a great one to share.   Photos below: Paige Kendig and Rob Klug […]

    The Hunt for Mr. Wright

    Our team at RFP was hired by “CBS 48 Hours” to create visual elements for a 50 year old murder case. This was an incredible project to be a part of.

    The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island

    Mozocam does it again! Lee captured some beautiful imagery for our friends down at Kiawah Island last month. What Mozocam does better than any other production device on the market is capture limitless, fluid motion-digital cinema, in very little time. That was our whole goal during the development stages of Mozocam. We wanted to offer our clients a quick solution of “motion with film quality” without the time delays of a big crew and gear getting in the way?  Inside […]

    Television news legend Tom Brokaw takes a penetrating retrospective look at 1968, a pivotal year in American history that saw the assassinations of MLK and RFK, the Tet Offensive, a sea change in pop culture and more. Including rare archival footage, recent interviews of key players and the perspective of four intervening decades, this provocative documentary brings to life the tragedies and triumphs of the sixties’ most memorable year.

    Sing Sing – long format 2012 EMMY nominee, Cinematography

    2012 EMMY Nominated for Cinematography!   About 4 months ago NBC had asked me to shoot with the Mozocam for their “Conviction” special.  Up until this point there had been very limited access granted for shooting the interiors of Sing Sing prison that sits about 20 miles north of NYC on the Hudson. Producer Dan Slepian had spent 10 years working on this story and wanted cinematic footage of the prison and other story elements. We made the most of […]

    Consultation / Promotions

    For a span of almost four years I worked  as a Video Consultant / DP for Tisbury Tours and James Taylor.  My work included still photography for promotions, video documentation, editing and developing specialized camera applications for guitar work.  I worked exclusively with freelance producer Susan Dangel during this time and this edited video represents that collaboration.  This is only a sampling of my work from that time. An amazing experience.

    Vanity Fair

    Producer Josh Gelman from 48 hours asked me to set the scene for this Vanity Fair / CBS collaboration.  He had chosen the Monkey Bar in NYC for it’s richness, ambiance and charm.  He wanted to film a dialogue between three Vanity Fair authors describing their most interesting stories. The feel was to be an after hours meeting of drinks and discussion between three colleagues.  I chose to post this quick collection of angles from the shoot as an example […]

    Injustice Files – 2011 treatment

    This was the third sizzle reel that I had completed for Investigation Discovery’s series, “Injustice Files.”  My approach towards this third installment which again focuses on racial crimes in the state of Mississippi was to take a much grittier, filmic approach to shooting.  I wanted everything to have constant motion.  So, when shooting interviews I worked off of a dolly system and when shooting in the field, the camera was either harnessed to me or suspended from my body in […]

    About a year ago I met Keith Beauchamp, an award winning filmmaker searching for the truth in Mississippi. Keith is one of the most passionate people I know. He is tireless when it comes to researching unsolved mysterious deaths in the rural South.   The producer’s of his new series asked me to come up with a “look” for the recreations that they had to film revolving around Keith’s research and the deaths that had occurred in Mississippi. These were […]

    TEACH and OMNI-Tracker

    This spot was shot entirely on Warren Herndon’s Omni-tracker. Omni-tracker is one of the most innovative concepts that I have had the pleasure of using in years. It all began with a simple phone call. While researching the web for a dolly system that would allow me to arc and get low to the ground, for both subject and product work, I found Warren’s site for Omni-tracker. Warren was not only receptive to my ideas on how I wanted to […]

  • MozoCam is Here!

    MozoCam is Here!

    Mozocam was developed by my colleague Lee Dashiell of OspreyHD. For years we have been trying to figure out a way to create limitless, gliding motion with no boundaries while using a small crew to cover a lot of ground. We were also looking to create something that bridged both the network and agency worlds visually. After much trial and error Lee found the impetus for Mozocam after renting a Segway in Miami while on a shoot last year.  Constantly striving to bring his […]
