I am responsible for leading the camera department at Culture Map. On set responsibilities include: overseeing and helping in the preparation lights, cameras, and audio equipment, setting up subjects for particular shots, filming intro/outro, filming segments, filming b-roll, and assuring that the media gets to DIT. I often also share assistant director, and art department roles because this is a very small team.

Director (Canon C100, Sony A7s ) Boogeyman

1/19 – 1/19

This was a video I co-produced, shot, and directed very enthusiastically. I worked closely with the artist on each stage of production for this video and together we wrote a concept that fit the original vision Stone had going into this one. Our goal was to create a piece that conveyed a message of social change and justice. Once we completed casting and I had scouted the locations, we filmed the live band portions in a rehearsal space on day one, and on day 2 we were filming in Downtown Dallas. I over saw post production and worked with a very close friend and talented editor to complete this video and it was nominated for and American Indie Music Award in 2019 for the category of Music Video - Social Change.

Myself and the director were responsible for capturing all video and audio for a short format branded web-series, "Cocktail Chronicles." I operated camera while monitoring audio, set up lights for a single subject behind a bar, assisted with script supervision. I also worked with the location to provide a vision for set decoration and presentation of each cocktail that was on brand with Old Forester. After every episode I also was responsible for capturing hero photographs of each unique cocktail preparation.
