I MAKE NARRATIVE FILMS, DOCUMENTARIES, COMMERCIALS, AND SMALL BUSINESS VIDEOS.
My niece, Kaitlynn, is 4 years old. I've been putting her in commercials pretty much since she could talk. To this point, I've sold two of these commercials that she has starred in - Choice Hotels and AdCouncil.
Who doesn't like a bit of nostalgia? I was looking through my older work (which I will be posting some of soon) and I started to think about the cameras and tools I used to capture that work, and the relationship between the two. I've owned six cameras in the fifteen years I've been making films. Some have been extremely limited in their capability, while others have had everything one could ask for (at the time of course). Let's take a look back as I rank these cameras in order of least liked to favorite.
This post is all about how we shot In The Shadows of the Backstretch. From what gear we used, to how often we shot, to how we budgeted our film.
