A shoot, at times, can be a little dangerous. For this shoot, I stationed myself on the railroad trestle and aimed down at the bridge below. The trestle was narrow and the sound of the surf was about all that I could hear. We only did one take and I ran off the tracks as quick as I could. This was all done for a 90 sec. spot for the guys at Veracity Colab. I ranged from Carpinteria all the way up to just a little north of Refugio. For this piece I wore quite a few hats, casting, scouting, producing and shooting. It was challenging and also a great deal of fun. I'll attach a link...
Yes it is. That’s the Easy Rig. I had never used it before this
shoot, but I found it to be a helpful tool for a hand-held show. It
is rather unsightly, but it was a good tool for this job. Here I am
on a Univision commercial shoot for DP Eric Koretz. I served as his
B-camera operator and I had a very good time. Eric chose the Canon
C300 to use for these spots. Great camera. I look forward to seeing
the completed product. Over the years, I’ve heard many filmmakers
deride the Easy Rig based on its appearance alone. I don’t think that
many of them had ever used...
Here are the set photos from a shoot for Priority Health. It was a simple concept and we executed it well. We also used great equipment like the Zeiss Master Primes. Beautiful image. THE COMPLETED PROJECT CAN BE VIEWED HERE.
The faithful G+E crew.
The shoot actually started on an interior shot, which I really liked. However, it ended up on the editing room floor.
This was a shoot for Specialized Bicycles. We scouted this town for some appropriate biking locations. We didn't end up shooting here, but we had a wonderful cafe con leche at a nearby cafe.
The camera in the middle is attached to the Mini Gyro stabilization mount, which is produced by Tyler Mounts. For this shoot, we were using a van as a shooting platform. The Mini Gyro dampens the movements of the vehicle you are shooting from.
Up in the mountains, we shot some time-lapse work amongst the windmills.
At the end of the shoot...
