Emmy Winning Cinematographer
The Speech that Saved America was the first time an American President was created in CG for a documentary. Considered the best in the vfx field of his time, Award Winning Director Pierre DeLespinois hired me as the cinematographer to capture a mixture of live action and green screen across the Appalachian mountains. This was the first 7-figure film deal for Discovery.
As a Director, Cinematographer and Producer, I worked with the Curiosity Stream Executive team, including Executive Producer Steve Burns, scientists and trailblazers to create science documentaries for the VOD streaming service.
As a cinematographer shooting for Backyard Productions and AD agency Cramer-Krasselt, I worked closely with the Director to achieve a black line "street look" from various scenes around Los Angeles, CA.
As cinematographer in my first music video with Director Tim Nakashi and fellow IATSE 600 cinematographer Rachel Morrison, we rode with the band and a super model from Santa Monica, California to Hollywood cinéma vérité.
"It's a gorgeously shot and sunny video for a slightly melancholy but incredibly catchy song."
