Early Film Work

 
 
 

I’ve had the privilege of telling some pretty rad stories through film. Each story educates and challenges my worldview so dramatically that I’m naturally driven to capture and share. My hope is to transport these experiences to where you are, so we can both feel again.

 
 
 
 
 

I’m heavily involved in the Vimeo community now, and first became known because of my work with film emulation. I started out with the humble Canon T2i, and explored ways to make the limiting codecs stretch and look like 16mm. My favorite part of my Vimeo experience is that I’ve been able to encourage so many people to pursue their craft no matter their circumstances.

When I transitioned into using production-grade equipment, the ceiling was suddenly gone. I finally got to create that larger-than-life feel that film has always had to me.

Working with Canon products was a great starting point, because I had to work within a clearly defined “box”. The footage was super compressed out of the camera, the H.264 codec limited post production immensely, and the resolution itself was muddy.

I always try to cut to black, because then the last thing a viewer sees is their own reflection on the screen. I kind of want every story to end in that way.
