Today I shot a lamborghini commercial for a dealership in Woodland Hills. We had two lamborghinis that we shot around town. We rigged 3 5D's and 6 go pros to them. The White one costs $500,000!

After researching for a while I found this great lighting company in South Korea making large china balls. Most of the china balls in the US are up to 1500Watts. I just bought one that is 4000Watts! The craftsmanship is topnotch, made with the best materials. This is great because it has two lines of power which make is possible to use without a generator. I plan to use it as a really soft glamour light or bring it up high in the sky and use it as ambient fill light in a night exterior scene. Here are some photos of it. It's about 4ft in diameter.

On Thursday shot a commercial for the San Francisco Earthquakes soccer team with Director Matt Fackrell. This should be a pretty funny spot. I'll upload a view stills soon!
Just shot the first day of 5 shooting days for a Nissan commercial last Tuesday with agency/production company Chiat Day. I'm pretty excited about this one. Director Ryan Browne and I are filming a Nissan Z car getting modified over the course of two months. Here are some BTS shots.
I bought two dental lights on craigslist. The light quality is pretty cool. It acts like a beauty dish (a still photography tool used in lighting for a hard/soft directional light). The light is evenly dispersed on the parabolic polished silver dish. Here's a photo of the light and an example from a small music video I did last week.
I might experiment by spray painting the dish white. The vignette is from the light which is cool. I might use the light to emulate a flashlight for a key light.
Had a great 4day shoot in San Diego last week for the San Diego Padres. The commercial will air on TV in San Diego and also at the beginning of every home game of 2012! We shot with the players on the field and also at Miramar air force base. It was awesome!

Here are some location photos for a San Diego Padres commercial I'm shooting next week. I get to shoot one full day in a Military airforce hanger and have an all access pass to Petco Park and film all the baseball players, I'm so excited. It's going to be very Michael Bay inspired!
Just completed a 4day shoot with director Stephen Reedy. All I can say is fire! Every shot will have C implemented. Shot on a stage for 4 days with the Arri Alexa and 14 Master Primes! The camera and lenses were donated. I don't think I'll ever have 14 Master primes on one single project! Did I use them all? Of course! Did I need to use them all? No. It was great!
The Adobe site is up with all the commercials I shot for Matt Fackrell and Kaboom Productions. Check out the link. More videos will be posted within the next few weeks.
