I myself have been a user of Apple Color and Magic Bullet Looks which is what I've used to grade "Wastage," "Sign Heist" and Jim Jones' "Letter to the Game." However, I would love to use DaVinci Resolve because it's really the industry standard in color grading. When you're working in this business, it never hurts to know the best!

Choice Humanitarian / Feel-Good World

Here's a small video announcement I made for a collaboration between Choice Humanitarian and Feel-Good World. Both are charities looking to put an end to global hunger, their latest effort involves awareness, dedication and grilled cheese sandwiches!

We shot this in my dad's kitchen and I used a combination of natural light and tungsten-balanced fluorescents to get the look I wanted. I was the only crew member so I operated the camera and operated the boom-mic as well! Thanks to Bekah Sosa, who wrote the script, I was able to plan out 4 different shots to help break up the monotony of announcing a simple message.

I'm not 100% pleased with the production value, but considering that we were under a 2 hour time crunch and I was every crew member all at once, I'm quite pleased with the results.

This was a fun project with some fun people, nothing to serious but important nonetheless. Thanks Bekah, Megan and Corin for being prepared and easy to work with. Let's do it again!
