HBO’s “East of Main Street” will premiere this May and will be available via HBO On Demand for those of you who are not subscribers. Today I sent in my second round of rough cuts for review and I’m very excited about the progress. It is the first HBO program that I have directed and shot, and it is the debut year for a series that I hope will continue every year. It’s been a long tough road, and has been more of a love project than a job, so I really hope people will enjoy it. More details will come soon!
Lucky NYC called me up and asked me to shoot some 2nd unit cinematography on my Aaton Super16mm camera for a huge Nike campaign for the World Cup. It was a pleasure to work with Ryan, Jon and Derek over at Lucky again. The spot was directed by masterful director Alejandro González Iñárritu (Amores perros / 21 Grams / Babel / Much More…) so I was very grateful to take part and also very humbled to be shooting additional photography for master DP Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC.
I spent a few days the past couple of weeks shooting for “A&E Biography: Nicholas Cage.” It’s been a lot of fun. You should tune in when it airs!
I am in my hometown of San Francisco for a few days this week, but this time it will be for a big documentary project directed by RJ Glass tentatively titled “Biological Control.” It is a documentary I am shooting in Super16mm, once again on my Aaton XTRProd, and it documents an attempt at sustainable agriculture in the wine country of Napa Valley. We will be shooting a lot of bugs fighting each other later in the year, flying out for a few days of each month until the Fall.
Coming (hopefully) soon is the music video for Zap Mama and G-Love for the track “Drifitng” that I shot at the end of last year and co-directed with Mandy Ward. It was the first big project shot on my Super16mm camera package and I’m excited to see the edit!
I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to be a part of so many good projects this year and many more are in development or just around the corner. When I catch my breath I’m hoping to update my websites with more current and relevant content.
Thanks for stopping by!
