covering the Los Angeles Food and Wine Festival

Covering and filming highlights of the Los Angeles Food And Wine Festival turned out to be a lot of fun, including filming everything in 4K. I also got to watch Common and even during the soundcheck, he was killing it!

Panasonic GH4 and 4K

I've had the panasonic GH4 for a few months and it continues to impress me.  I didn't initially think that I would use 4k much, but that has certainly changed and I find myself shooting more and more material on 4K.  The compression allows for file sizes that are still reasonable and manageable, and it allows for a lot more latitude in post production.

Live visuals for an upcoming promo video

Last night was experimental and fun running live visuals for a new EDM project and filming it for a new music video.  Resolume handled everything I threw at it like a champ.  We filmed everything in 4k using the panasonic GH4.  Video coming soon....

Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams" cover

I recorded this track a couple of years ago with the talented vocalist Adam Darling. Finally getting around to mixing the track and looking forward to releasing it soon.

RAD Beast production underway with a couple of teaser videos

Directing this awesome supercar once it's complete is going to be an exhilarating experience. Meanwhile, we worked on a couple of teaser videos for the official release of the car and got to see a full size CNC machine on the final day of machining of the car's carbon fiber body.

Smartscore NoteReader iOS music scanning app

It was a great experience to be hired by Musitek to direct a couple of promotional videos for their new mobile music scanning app. It was nice to have a great DP and assistant director on set using a RED camera and not have to worry about fiddling with the camera!

A day in downtown Long Beach with the Panasonic GH4

After spending a couple of days with the Panasonic GH4, I went out for a day in downtown Long Beach and shot some footage to put together a quick video. The GH4 is a great camera and I enjoyed both the 96fps slow-motion and 4k features. The time-lapse footage was done on the GH3 along with the Emotimo TB3.
