Tackling Fashion Cinematically, Or How I Love Filming Fashion

Tackling fashion with the camera is fun. Fashion is alive. Fashion abandons most of the rules of traditional cinema and I love to film it. Being able to over shoot, and realizing that so little of the footage will end up in the final piece provides me with liberty. After shooting for a couple of hours, I know that there will be only that one single moment when everything in the universe was right. The lighting was awesome. The shadow […]

MAGIC Las Vegas 2017 Trade Show

Last week my wife Cynthia and I drove to the Magic Las Vegas 2017 Trade Show. This three-day fashion extravaganza is the most comprehensive fashion trade show in America. It only happens twice a year on the West Coast, and this year was the first year that I went. Last year it was 120 degrees when my wife attended, so I was happy this year when it was only 102 degrees with a light breeze. You might wonder why I […]

HDR Finishing Changes Everything: Deluxe

HDR Finishing
HDR Finishing Changes Everything: Deluxe The good news is that you really don't have to run out and buy a UHD TV just yet, but you will want to buy a TV that can display HDR finishing.

BMPCC Captured Vintage Chevys

BMPCC Captured Vintage Chevys My BMPCC Captured Vintage Chevys in Burbank, California is home to Disney, Warner Bros., television studios, post-production facilities, and retired movie industry veterans. For those of you who are old enough to remember, beautiful downtown Burbank was the butt of jokes popularized by Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, a popular television show that aired from 1968 through 1973. The joke of Burbank being a small town, meant it had very little appeal, and because the show was taped there, the comedy team used the […]
