Director of Photography (C300 MkII) Both Sides

Jubilee — Internet — Jubilee Project Details
4/17 – 4/17

I was Director/DP on this series, which is slated for a May-June 2017 release on the YouTube Channel, Jubilee. In addition to my directing responsibilities, I orchestrated the visual nature of the project: Selected the lighting and camera package, worked with the YouTube Space for stage and equipment needs, prelit the stage with the gaffer, then managed the crew on shoot day. We shot (3) C300 MkII cameras and lit with beauty lighting, which I devised with the gaffer to work within the small space.

Director of Photography (C500) – National Association of Women Business Owners

Conceptualized lighting and camera work to bring forth the director's vision. Selected the lighting and camera package to maximize budget impact. Worked closely with gaffer to quickly and beautifully light scenes using the Mole Tener LED into a second story window, 1.2K HMIs, a Quasar Xfade, and fresnels ranging from 650 to 2K. We shot Zeiss Standard Speeds and recorded to the Atomos Shogun as well as proxies in-camera to speed up post. The majority of the scenes were on EasyRig.
