Back Online….

It's been a really really crazy weekend for me, so I didn't have time to sit and update the website with much. I had video shoots all three days from morning till late late night. Oddly most of these events required some Steadicam work and with my HD4000 rig built out, I was beat... On the plus side I got to shoot a few new things i've never done before, so it was a great learning experience and i'm trying to jot down everything I need to brush up on. I even got to play camera man for a Craigslist Foundation in Berkeley, and interviewed Craig N. himself. With my Steadicam gear on the first thing he said to me was:

'You're not a Cyborg from Skynet sent here to kill me are you?'

Quite a character that Craig is. So because I was flooded with tons of comments and questions, things got lost pretty quick. I apologize if I didn't respond to anyone, and in case things get lost, please send in those comments or questions again. I'm back online and should be able to answer them.

    Worried? Most people are happy because they might be saving some extra money without updates on this site. LOL.

    With my crazy schedule, I mostly play camera operator. I don't have the time to really manage the entire project and go back and forth with clients, but I can at least still have fun and play a part as camera operator. Most of the footage I shoot is immediately turned in to the Producer and editors. Since it's also footage that belongs to the client for some type of commercial use, I can't really publish it. When or if it becomes available online to the public, i'll sometimes talk about it. Playing the role of camera operator / hired gun, is a nice fit for my lifestyle. Non-exclusive, just hired to bring the different gear I have - 'shoot and deliver'. It definitely saves the producers money on equipment rental + camera operator expenses. I've been staying busy enough where I didn't need a demo reel, but maybe i'll compile some different footage into something soon.

    that sounds pretty sick dude!

    I can only speak for myself but I would really like to see some of the footage you've been taking. As a newbie, seeing the work of professionals gives me inspiration and ideas for my own stuff.

    Also, after you shoot everything, who edits it for you? I've shot 3 weddings so far and between converting the clips to ProRes 422, Backing them on externals, editing a highlight flim and then the full feature...i've already got a backlog and I'm feeling very stressed. Do you do all your own editing or do you just film?
