Doug Hamilton’s eye-opening chronicle of the production of the Broadway musical “American Idiot” captures the frenetic and electrifying artistic energy of the cast and creative forces hard at work transforming Green Day’s “American Idiot” album from the sonic realm to the New York stage. Taking the cameras backstage and behind-the-scenes, Doug elevates the musical documentary genre to new heights, allowing the viewer the opportunity to see the nuts and bolts of the theater world from all sides. “Broadway Idiot” goes […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
Here is a new travel/tourism video that we did in historic Beaufort, SC for their commerce dept. This is a great example of how effective this process is when it comes to showcasing an environment that is as visually appealing as this National Landmark Historic community. Enjoy!
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 […]
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 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 […]
