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...
Big Boy is a film about hearing impairment, the Cochlear Implant, boyhood and coming of age.
For this film I followed Christopher (above right) a 16 year old who is profoundly hearing impaired. When he was 3 years old he received the Cochlear Implant which allowed him to hear and to learn to speak. This film chronicles Christopher's trials and triumphs as he makes his way through life. The trailer can be seen here.

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.

Up in the mountains, we shot some time-lapse work amongst the windmills.
