It’s been a busy time since the last update – here’s a quick rundown of the projects I’ve been working on:
I was honored to help shoot a music video for a local musician who wrote a song for his wife who is fighting cancer. Check out the video below, and please consider donating to their GoFundMe page below to help offset the growing medical expenses.

I also had the opportunity to be the Director of Photography for TWO short films for this month’s Rack Focus: Round 2 competition in Dallas.
Coda: dc al Fine
Both were great projects to work on, and they will be showing at the Granada Theater in Dallas, TX on Dec 15th and Dec 16th, 2015.
It’s been a while since an update, but I have some very exciting news.
Two short films I worked on are showing at the Bare Bones International Film and Music Festival, and one of them is up for Best Family Dramatic Film and Best Director.

Dual System Audio
Beginning filmmakers often overlook a vital aspect of telling your story – quality audio. While audio options exists in nearly any dollar range that you can imagine, no/low budget filmmakers can still capture quality audio using a dual-system audio recorder. Check out the link for a great example of a simple, effective dual system audio setup.
