If Looks Could Kill Premiering this month (December 2016) on Lifetime Movie Network! It was a joy to collaborate with director James Cullen Bressack on this Lifetime feature.  With James, the words were “color” and “shadows”.  We had a great time developing the look for this stylish thriller together. A huge thanks goes out to

Nightmare Vision Teaming up again with director Jared Cohn, I shot Nightmare Nanny (2016) with a Panavised Alexa using Panavision Primo Ls.  It was a dark Lifetime drama, and we had fun playing up the thriller aspects of the script.  We went for high contrast lighting when possible, often in low light-levels and the cameras

SHARK! I can sum up my Feb and March 2016 like this:  Greenscreen, rubber sharks, and lots of wire work.    We’ve been working a two-camera package with Panavised Arri Amiras and Primo V lenses (with a few Primo Ls thrown in there). Switching to Arri I’m very pleased that Panavision Woodland Hills enabled us to

Alien Invasion! It’s happening again!  Huge, giant flying saucers are appearing around the world! What do they want NOW?!? This was really a fun movie to shoot.  We flew two Red Epic Dragons with Optimo DP zooms for a lighting fast two-week shoot.  This science fiction, alien invasion movie was my first time wearing both

Vengeance is Ours! I’ve just finished principal photography on a classic, action-filled horror starring Paul Logan, Costas Mandylor, Bill Moseley, Vernon Wells, Nestor Serrano and Matthew Willig, “The Horde.” We are running around in the woods, setting things on fire, and beating people up.  I’ll update you when we’re all finished! Run and Gun Action

Zombies, Jungle, and Fog! “Isle of the Dead” (or XP-573) was a cool action-zombie shoot with Director Nick Lyon, starring Joey Lawrence and Maryse Ouellet-Mizanin, and D.C. Douglas.  Two Red Epic Dragons and a set of 6 Ultra Primes were our base package.  We were always shooting two cams, with “A Cam” riding steadicam 1/2

Shooting the independent feature “Tableau Vivant” , This fire-lit, night exterior scene, was supposed to take place during the day, but our schedule ran long and there wasn’t enough daylight left..

Zombie Wolf Attack Fun! This has really been a fun show.  Wolves. Capes. Swords. Night Exteriors. Puppets.  …even a man in a wolf suit (which I swear is 90% for our personal entertainment on set). We’ve been shooting for two weeks now, with dueling Red Dragons.  “A Cam” is a Red Epic Dragon, and “B Cam” is a Red Scarlet

#m2m “Minutes to Midnight” is a horror feature, produced by Tiki Terrors and DeInstitutionalized.  Directed by Chris Olen Ray. M2M stars William Baldwin, Bill Moseley, Richard Grieco, Dominique Swain, Viva Bianca, and Christopher Judge.  Read the official announcement on TheWrap.com. We shot with a Red Epic and Red Scarlet, using Leica-R primes.  Our “days” were split

Oh Hell No. What a fun, insane shoot this was.  I was wrapped in plastic inside a shark one moment, then rocketing into space with Hasselhoff and Ziering the next.  We were running around Washington D.C. and shooting what seemed like a million cameo shark-deaths.  This was “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” If you’ve seen

“Bound” follows a conservative business woman as she delves into the sexy “underworld” of bondage and role play. This sexy thriller explored many different looks as we shift from home life, through corporate offices, and ultimately sex clubs and “dungeons.” Click to Read MORE!

Sharks and Robots! This Sci-Fi Action Disaster movie is guaranteed madness, and it was a lot of fun to shoot. We shot with a Red Scarlet and Zeiss Super Speed Lenses. The movie was nearly 90% hand held (lots of action) and those lightweight lenses, coupled with the Scarlet’s lightweight build, made operating a breeze. CLICK to read more!

Last weekend I had the opportunity to be a part of Katie’s Tears: a thoughtful, and occasionally sassy,  project centered around the world of prostitution and human-trafficking. Through a gracious offer from Bertone Visuals and Hollywood Camera, Director Don’re Walker and I were able to bring this story to life with the rich, raw detail of the

After shooting two college frat movies, I was looking forward to embracing a more mature look with this twenty-something comedy.  “Bachelor Night” chases  two bachelor/bachelorettes  through one wild night in Las Vegas. We shot with the Red Scarlet using Optimo DP Zooms.  We love movement, and this was exactly the kind of story that wanted to

I was very excited to team up with my long-time colleague and friend, Glenn Miller, for his first narrative feature as a Director.  “The Co-ed and the Zombie Stoner” was a two-camera shoot, pairing the Red Epic and Red Scarlet with Optimo DP zooms.  We flew “A” camera on steadicam 80% of the time, with

Director Chris Olen Ray and I set about creating three distinct looks to underscore the drama that unfolds through this sci-fi disaster movie, “Asteroid vs. Earth”.  Shooting on the Red One MX and Red Epic, with Zeiss Super Speed primes, we survived explosions, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and some very tight spaces. 🙂 I’ll give more

Alpha House is a sexy “frat house” comedy, complete with wild frat parties and a giant HUMAN HAMSTER BALL!

We shot with the Red Scarlet in 4k HD, using Optimo DP Zooms (14 – 42, and 35- 85) and the occasional Go Pro Hero 3 for “surveillance cam” footage. CLICK to read more…

Jail Bait is primarily set in a juvenile correctional facility.  We shot this dramatic feature on the Red Scarlet with two Optimo DP zooms. These zooms were perfect for this shoot, and contributed quite a lot to the visual style.  It became a signature move to slowly zoom in on our action during key moments.

This is my most up-to-date cinematography montage reel for 2013!

The “Lizzie” Pilot was shot with the Red Epic and Zeiss primes. We divided the characters “worlds” with different camera operation styles: handheld, vs smooth fluid head or slider movement. Watch the Promo Video!

What a gruesome way to start a shoot. Our first day of shooting this past March was spent in a garage, with ripped newspaper over the windows sending violent chards of light across the naked body of our Dahlia. Click to read more!

Continuing on my streak of “red” shoots, (this time using the Red Scarlet) I continue to be thrilled with the images that are now achievable in low budget filmmaking. Click to Read More!

“Secuestrado” follows a family kidnapped for ransom. For this intense, gritty drama, we chose to shoot with two Canon 5D Mark III cameras rated at 640 ISO. Click to read more!

“TV Face” is a pulp-comic horror feature, which was subsequently split into a web series. Director Dean Bull had a unique vision for this very stylized piece.  I regularly operated on a dutch head; together with a high frame-rate, we used the dutch head to create very surreal transitions between reality and “nightmare” sequences.  We
