Tales from the Freelance Crypt
After this past Day For Night- I jumped straight into shooting my first feature from Courtney Glaude titled Blink. It was a grueling month and some change of shooting with long hours and no budget- But we finished it and I heard recently from the editor that it's almost at picture lock (Finished but needs effects, color, sound, etc) It was shot with a small crew (myself, Gracie, Ellie, and AT) And I used a Red Epic Dragon. Rumor has it that it's going to get a distribution deal- which is exciting for our first big project. I learned a ton of stuff on lighting with minimal equipment and had to improvise a lot of shots- which is always challenging.
After that- I got back into the freelance hustle. I shot a few corporate videos, random interviews, and edited a cool piece for my buddy's new Movie Blog, Viddy Well, which I hope to contribute more to once I catch the writing bug again. Super proud of this cut-
When SXSW season came around, We decided to get as far away from Austin as possible so we went to Vietnam and Cambodia, which was a great place to clear up some of the mind mush and fly my new DJI Mavic Pro. They were super strict about the no-fly zones (for good reason imo) and so I could only take it up in a handful of places. Really thankful for that trip because I was able to connect with some ancient sites like Angkor Wat.
This is my attempt to be more like a normal human. I don't put everything in the world here. Just when I remember to use it. I'm not much of a blog boy.
