Mulholland Overlook Sunset Time-Lapse

Recently I drove down Mulholland drive and ended up at the Mulholland Overlook to shoot a time-lapse of a gorgeous sunset over the San Fernando Valley. There was a rare bit of weather that night and the result are some bright colors reflecting off of dark clouds. Take a look below for a limited time before I pull it down! I also made an extended version (that I prefer) which slows down the process.

Shot this on a GoPro Hero 3 at 1920×1080 23.98p. Actually captured the whole 45 minute sunset and sped it up in Resolve in Post.

 

ON THE GROUND: ComicCon 2014

Better late than never, the post I should have written a week ago: I was assigned by WWE Studios to head down to ComicCon in San Diego, CA to run tech on the panel featuring the trailer premieres for See NoEvil 2 and Leprechaun: Origins from them and Lionsgate Films. Pretty significant since we finally unveiled the new-look Leprechaun, a total 180 from the original series. I’ve spent the past year or so finishing and delivering the film in post production so I am stoked for the result. Read on for the whole experience that was ComicCon as well as the links to the juicy stuff – trailers for both films. Read more

Six years ago, in the cool early spring of the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago, I set out to Direct what would be my last “student” film at Columbia College Chicago. It would be for a comedy directing class, one I particularly enjoyed, taught by Terry Miller. The short would be based off of a silly idea I had in high school about a boy’s stuffed bunny rabbit who springs to life as a serial killer. Sort of a tongue-in-cheek horror/comedy where TOY STORY meets CHILD’S PLAY. But why would this silly short film take so long to finally get edited and released? Well, that’s a whole different story.
