Birthday And Update

Posted on

I know I haven’t been updating too much lately but because there have been a lot of things going on I haven’t had much time. I will be doing more blog posts and also more videos on everything. I will list a couple key things for now. First, I just had another birthday. So there was that. As I mentioned before I did get a new camera, the Sony FS7 4K camera. As always is the case with a new camera there is a learning curve but since I’m coming from a Sony camera to another it isn’t that big. However, the recording format is new for me so there is some learning there. Mainly how to shoot in it correctly and how to work with it in post production. I’ll be getting into that more soon.

Happy Birthday James Cameron!   Here’s a nice clip from an interview about him being inspired by the movies as a kid. The trailer to the film that started it all for him. Plus it’s one of my favorite films.

Happy Birthday George A Romero

Happy Birthday to one of my idols George A. Romero. Having met him several times I can tell you he is an incredibly great guy. To say he has influenced my filmmaking career is an understatement. So I am sending out my very best to the man himself. Happy Birthday George!

Happy Birthday Steven Spielberg

Posted on

Today is Steven Spielberg’s birthday and as a huge fan of his I want to wish him all the best. He is one of my favorite directors and someone who has inspired me greatly. The “Indianapolis Speech” alone from ‘Jaws’ (one of my favorite scenes ever committed to celluloid) is worthy of him being one of my favorites but with such a career and he is still pumping them out. So I hope Mr. Spielberg has an amazing birthday today and here’s to many more to come. My friend Billy pointed me to this video over at Fandor.com where they did a cool video posted below about the “Spielberg Face”. A specific use of close ups that Spielberg uses in his films and the evolution of it.
