Shooting two music videos in one night can be daunting… Unless you’re shooting Florida’s power-rock band, HORNIT. Here’s a behind the scenes look at the fun that was had.
I wanted to include all the footage in the reel, but it was just too long. If only I could cut it in half and run both pieces at the same time… Thoughts on the format? Let me know via the comments below. Thanks!
This was shot in two nights in Texas. A majority of which was in a side room in a VERY busy restaurant with a freakin’ band playing in the very next room. Needless to say, audio was an issue. If you listen closely, you can almost hear “Sweet Home Alabama”… Special thanks to the illustrious [...]
I fondly recall about six years ago… the early days of crowdsourced video stock and the thrill and convenience it provided to be able to pickup a great clip of footage for $5 that would’ve taken hours to create. Now – for reasons I can only assume are greed-induced, a decent video clip goes for [...]
The Rastelli Direct family is a very cool group of folks. We had a lot of fun shooting the interview segments of this piece as well as having the pleasure of directing the talented Tinamarie.
During post production on just about anything dealing with live action footage, you’re left with a TON of unusable video. But sometimes, below the surface, down in the cracks is where you can find the really priceless gems.

Use the PRIVACY PLEASE tags on the doors. Nothing kills a take faster than, Tap-tap-tap, “Housekeeping…” 3. You’re going to have to move furniture. Bring help. [...]
CieAura launched a just a couple years before this post. One year, 50 countries and over $100 million in sales later, I think they may be on to something… I got the call from an old friend working with CieAura asking for 3 videos: a 3:00 Motion Graphics business opportunity piece with a few green [...]
This was a fun shoot for Anutra, all with a Canon XH-A1, live at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando. The decision to shoot the formal portion of the interviews with the founders was done on the fly with no tripod or mic stand, so I’m balancing the camera on a wobbly table with the mic [...]
