Id like to offer my services for your upcoming shoot. I have been in the business for over 15 years, shooting hundreds of shows in that time. I have experience with nearly every type of production and every situation. Around the world, or around the block I can produce great pictures within your budget.
I personally am motivated by the story. We are all here to tell stories, and I love to be a part of that collaboration. The shot isnt a great shot unless it communicates something to the viewer, as part of the overall story. All aspects of the film are important – sound, camera, lighting, makeup, acting, writing, directing. Any part missing just leaves the viewer feeling left out, and the story left behind. I strive to hold up my end of the bargain, and expect those around me to hold up theirs.
I truly believe in pre-production: lets visit the location, lets talk shots. If needed lets storyboard. I always try and at least do markups for each of the scenes in a narrative or music video, so that we all know what the action is and where everything goes. Thats not to say that I am a stickler to it once we shoot – its just is a starting point for on-set creativity. It gives us a basis from where to talk, and when new things come to light, I roll with the punches.
