Livestreaming Yoga

I spent this past Monday & Tuesday at the studio of my long time friend and client, Marco at Be Here Now Yoga DC, to make his classes available via livestream, and then online for later use. The trial by fire rollout of these services are right up my alley, as I love to think on my feet and create solutions in real time.

The last few weeks have made the remarkably quick move into working from home that this country has needed for a long time. The hope is that once this whole thing is more contained and people are able to leave their homes, that companies will see the positive impact to everything that working from home brings.

I would love to help individuals and companies get set up to Livestream. Whether that means coming on site to set everything up for you, walking you through the setup process over the phone/FaceTime, or creating instructional videos for your team.

Join me in socially distancing, but not socially disconnecting!

Live Music!

It’s not everyday that I find myself in a club, even more rare is being there to film. I used to shoot a lot of music events back in the day, but quickly realized that making money in that side of the industry is not very guaranteed. All of that being said, a couple weeks ago my friend Justin Trawick reached out to see if I had any interest in filming his show at DC9 the following evening. So we packed our gear up and after a quick old man nap, headed out to the city, with my nine year old in tow to assist the process. The majority of the show was pretty straightforward, filming one static shot, with some b-roll stuff filmed on my iPhone 11 Pro Max. The last song was a bit different, Justin moved the band down off the stage and onto the floor, circled around a small table, a Tiny Desk, if you will. This recording would eventually become their entry video for the NPR Tiny Desk Concerts. Justin asked the crowd if they could all film the song on their iPhones, which they would then send to me for a edit using the footage from the crowd. Crowd Sourced content at its core!

The song, recording, and audience participation was wonderful! We ended up getting about seventeen people who sent in their footage, which was then cut into what was essentially a multi angle cut of the performance. The editing process was an interesting one, requiring some crazy processing power to keep the whole thing flowing. Justin and I spent about eight hours together laying the video out, and I spent close to another ten hours getting everything just right. Here is the final cut, which I will link from Justin’s YouTube, which you should subscribe to, HERE.

McLaren 720s Dyno Tune

We spent some time with this super tough McLaren 720s after the install of some Ryft Exhaust parts and a tune. Check out what we came up with for our newest client, Loudoun County Exotics. This thing absolutely screamed on the dyno and even filming from a good twenty feet back I could feel the heat on my face and my beard blowing. After tuning we took a quick ride, and good god did this thing pull. I have been in a LOT of very fast cars in my day, but I think this may take the cake.

We filmed this on a 5d3 with the exception of the close up side shot, which was filmed on an Apple iPhone 11pro Max on a mini tripod. Audio was handled with a Zoom H6, using the omni directional mic and a wired lav mic, which was clipped on the inside of the car.

I am mostly back in action after a little hand surgery. My first day back on the job I filmed this little spot for TYG Homes in Ashburn Virginia, highlighting some amenities of the Potomac Green Neighborhood! Take a look and let me know what you think!

Powered Chandelier

Today I filmed in a house that had a chandelier that could be lowered to the ground for cleaning. I couldn’t help but make a video.

The other day I had some fun shooting on green screen for a long time friend/client. Check out a rough draft and some photos from the shoot below. Thanks so much!
