Video Production

Video Production  Here's a sneak peak still from one of the latest movie productions that we worked on with Timidmonster films.  For this movie I worked alongside Ryan Earl Parker as his first camera assistant, quite a switch from being the cinematographer role that I normally play on set, but I wanted the chance to work with Ryan and learn from him. Between takes I worked as the unit still photographer catching moments like these on set. 

Video Film Production

Video Film Production Living in Memphis I get to shoot a lot of indie films/ Most of the time I work as the first unit cinematographer, but I chose to work on the Timid Monster set as the 1st camera assistant for this sci fi film, I worked hand in hand getting the camera set up and ready for the director of photography, Ryan Earl Parker. I wanted a chance to work with Ryan, and it was an action packed few days of shooting in this abandoned warehouse, the Tennessee Brewery. I've shot another film there recently, Avarice, and worked as the still photographer for a Walmart Soundcheck music video last year. Between takes I worked as the unit still photographer for Timid Monster Films, capturing the cast and crew working behind the scenes and on takes. I love this shot of our leading actress as she's captured on a scene taking a quick break.
