Director of Photography (RED Epic-W Helium 8k Sensor) RIVERSIDE - Documentary

NETFLIX — Reality/Doc (TV) — Denton Film Company Details
3/17 – 8/17

This project is a cinematic style documentary. I came up with the look and feel for the visuals, I lit the interviews and speicific b-roll shots, and came up with creative shots to tell the story visually. I incorporated creative slo-motion shots, gimbal shots, and nature shots. We were immersed in nature nearly off the grid. Filming in a cabin, in the woods, and along side and in a river. Canoes, fishing, music, nature, cooking and food shots, driving shots, etc where all apart of the doc.
