I was the first AC, managed the camera, and on the two gorilla days I was also the Key Grip in the mojave desert. Great little commercial, DP loved to shoot wide open with BPM, which was a challenge I loved and appreciated. I am inspired by commercials with such a great story to them.

I was the key grip in charge of rigging for this very ambitious and artistic short film. We did a 9 minute oner through a built obstacle course of a set, and I worked very closely with the DP, Gaffer, and steadicam operator to get this setup and execute it well and safely. Also got to work with airstars for the first time! Which are exquisite.
