Thanks to some help from my friends at Bellevue College I have the privilege of being one of 6 students for the live webcast of Gale Tattersall’s master class on DSLR Cinematography this weekend at creativeLIVE studios on Seattle. If you don’t know him already Gale is the Cinematographer on the hit television series HOUSE MD. Last year he helped shake up the world of network television. The season finale for “House” was shot entirely on the Canon DLSR’s. This award winning episode was noted for it’s outstanding camera work and cinema like imagery. All this on cameras that cost less then $3,500.
At a recent meeting of the Bellevue Film Society we were making plans for the shooting of our short film REMINISCE. After the meeting a few of us got together to shoot a short promo video for creativeLIVE so that I could be in the running to be a student of Gale’s. My video was selected! I’ll be joining 5 other students starting Friday to learn directly from one of Hollywood’s master cinematographers. The class will be available for live streaming from creativeLIVE.COM and later made for sale as a DVD. Check out the videos below. The 1st has some information from Gale about this weeks class. The 2nd one is my winning entry.
So new things are happening in the wedding world. Partly these “films” are made possible by the new HDSLR technology. But another thing is the young couples who have found a new way to express their love. This would have seemed unreal to me just 5 years ago. These two videos are wonderful examples of what creative filmmakers are doing to bring help create a whole new experience for couples who want to do something uniquely original and creative with their wedding. Taking nothing away from these talents, in fact I am truly impressed. See what Aesthetica can do to make you wedding an amazing and an experience you’ll remember forever?
Joya and Emre’s Wedding
Joya and Emre’s Wedding was made by David Robin Films. Flawless was made by Pacific Pictures. Both show amazing creativity and technique in filmmaking. In addition the couples involved showed amazing moxie and spunk to step outside the box so to speak in creating a remembrance of their special day. I think this shows a quality in them that will serve them quite well in the years to come. And what fun it must have been!
This is a short film I worked in this Summer. Michael Kowalczyk contacted me to get some wet street footage for a film he was shooting in LA. I never got to meet the team yet my footage meshes perfectly. Filmmaking is truly global.
A film I made last year has been accepted into the Local Sightings Film Festival here in Seattle. The film “Solving the Quantum Riddle: Interrupted” is based on 5 haiku’s & shot on my Canon 7D. The fest runs Oct 1st thru 6th at the Northwest Film Forum on Capital Hill. I’ll keep you updated once I have the schedule.
