My current reel. Hi, it’s been a while.
My current reel. Hi, it’s been a while.
So I’ve been asked to return to KBAK and KBAK here in Bakersfield to continue helping out in the promotions department. Still working at jr Design Group as well. It’s going pretty well so far but I have to admit I’m usually spent by the end of the day working both jobs everyday. It’s an awesome responsibility to have at the station. I’m in charge of a lot now and I feel like I’m doing a pretty good job. I’m only temporary though but I applied for the promotions producer job there and I hope I get it. It’ll be real cool to work there and start a new chapter in my life working with passion in a field I love.
Here is a short film I did for my video productions class. I had a lot of fun working on it. Check it out!
I’ve started an internship with KBAK and KBFX, local FOX and CBS affiliates. I’ve been working there for a few weeks now and it’s been pretty cool. So far I’ve been station tagging promos for Fox Primetime shows like House, Lie to Me, and Glee.
Recently I got to have some creative input on a promo for the Bakersfield Police Dept. Memorial Run. It should be airing really soon so I’ll link to it as soon as it’s available online.
Fun stuff! I’m also trying to get some editing or videography work in somewhere soon. Updates as they come!
Here is a small spot I shot and edited for a local night club called Krush. Youtube seems to have taken the audio off this video. Sad face!
Some quick stuff I shot last week: On August 8th, 2010 The Alamo Drafthouse screened director Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood” at the Kern County Museum where PTA came to for reference while making the movie.
Here’s the trailer for my documentary “I Ain’t a Pretty Boy No More”
So yesterday was a long hot day of shooting the annual celebration of the South Central Farmers losing their community garden in south central LA. Why celebrate it? There’s a lot to be happy about. Now they own their own land in Buttonwillow and have also been farming on leased land. The original garden in south central is also up for sale and they want to get it back.
Yesterday marked the first time water had touched the land by the pumps that well all generously donated to the farmers. Maxine Waters ceremoniously cut the ribbon and turned on the pump. Watching the children run around play in the muddy water was pretty moving.
So I was their now as a 3 member team of cameramen. We’re making the follow up documentary to the Oscar nominated film “The Garden”. It’s a little daunting to be responsible for catching very life changing stuff for the people we’re focusing on. I can already tell you I’ve filmed a man tear up and another man hold back some tears and Mira (the director) has already said it won’t be the last time we capture a man crying while filming this movie.
Here is a link to a clip about yesterday.
So recently I’ve been given the opportunity of a lifetime. Mira Tweti found an old Craigslist post I made offering my editing or filming services to fill out my portfolio and it got me a DP job working on a documentary about the South Central Farmers. Here’s a link to the original documentary we are doing the follow up to.
The process will probably take a whole year to make but it’ll be out at plenty festivals and that has got me super stoked! Hell I might even do some traveling if this thing picks up like it sounds like it will.
Peace Out Boy Scout,
Bad Days, Good Days
I’ve posted this before but this little short movie I made last year won me a local contest. The contest was the Bright House Mini-Movie Contest. The competition was pretty tough so I’m happy to walk away with the prize. So here it is! My first short film since I was probably 12 years old.
City Symphony - Bakersfield, Ca.
Did this for my Documentary Production class
Quick video I did for my documentary production class.
Small title example. I think I’ll be using this for new youtube videos as an intro.
I shot and edited this promo for the La Prendida website. Comedian Johnny Sanchez interviewed.
