I Am Not a Female Cinematographer.

As a fledgling Cinematographer, coming to LA in 2003, I was always forgetting that I was a woman. I was very fortunate to grow up surrounded by a sense of equality between the sexes; such that if ever I encountered undue disrespect on set, or in the pursuit of a job, I considered every possible

Alpha House one sheet is released!

I shot Alpha House a few months ago, with the Red Scarlet and Optimo DP Zooms.  Read more technical details about the shoot in my Alpha House Portfolio. Here is a little “Alpha House” behind-the-scenes video, from the perspective of the Cinematographer!

New feature project announced! Zombies!

This holiday season I’ll be shooting a Zombie comedy feature!  More details to come, currently rallying the troops…  It’s looking like a lot of night exterior so far… one jam-packed week of prep left! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Friends In Your Head Commentary: Rosemary’s Baby

Last week I was invited to join “the boys” at for their first scary movie of the Halloween season: Roman Polanski’s horrifying thriller Rosemary’s Baby.

Mother’s Cure

“Mother’s Cure” is an intense “family” drama set in an apocalyptic future, shot on the Black Magic Cinema Camera with Zeiss Compact Primes. For us, apocalyptic times meant mixed color temperatures, overcast day with a golden, low hanging sun peeking out, flares, low contrast (achieved through fog and veiling glare) for the day, and a harsh

Painting a Painting about Painting…with Light…

I am right in the middle of shooting the independent feature “Tableau Vivant” , a wonderful mix of horror, suspense and art theory 🙂  We have had so many varied looks and visual challenges that I’m eager to blog about, but for now I’d like to post one frame grab from a night exterior last weekend.

Red Digital Cinema Cameras: Epic, Scarlet, and One

Red has been a polarizing addition to the production world since their introduction in 2006… At the end of the day, Red Epic is good enough for Peter Jackson and cheap enough for the average Joe on craigslist making his first movie. That, in itself, is amazing.

NAB 2012 – Black Magic Cinema

I was able to make a brief appearance at NAB this year. Just enough time to check out a few key items of interest.  Among them, I definitely had to make time for the Black Magic Cinema camera that everyone is buzzing about.  With the ability for 2.5K uncompressed RAW 12-bit capture (in addition to
