The latest short I edited for Ryan Enn Hughes is now available online. I really enjoyed working on this project because of the creative freedom allowed. I wanted the twitch-like movement of the insects to transcend the entire short, which resulted in an intense edit. The music by Professor Kliq also helped to sustain that intensity. Check it out below!

A behind the scenes look at Amber Heards FASHION Magazine cover shoot in L.A. with photographer Michael Williams. When you’re working with footage of such beautiful talent it’s hard not to go all out on the video edit.
Colour footage shot on a Canon 5D MKII. The B&W was shot with a consumer digital still camera.
I’m finally back from New York and it was absolutely exhilerating. Covering the marathon was such a rush. From getting great access to the start line and pro runners, the Maasai Marathon group, getting a media motorcade to transport us to Central Park from Staten Island to cover the finish, it was more than someone covering the event could ask for.
Had a pleasant surprise in my inbox this morning: Shauna, a Maasai Marathon Organizer sent this after watching the short fundraiser video I did for my Dad:
“Just wanted to say that your video is so awesome. Edward and I just
watched it and it really is great. We are having the web master put it
in the main videos section.”
What started as a simple promo video has now exploded into a documentary! I’m heading south at the end of the month to cover the ING New York City Marathon where I will be following the Maasai Marathon Team from start to finish. Along with the race day shoot I will be interviewing the Maasai warriors and Edward Norton about what makes the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust such an important cause.
Well I just got back from a wonderful holiday in Paris and I’m already missing it. There was so much history and culture that I couldn’t possibly see it all in one trip but I tried my best. Highlights included ice cream at Berthillon and all the world class food!
A teaser for my upcoming short about my journey through Morocco.
For my last day in Morocco I spent time taking photos and exploring what I could before making the long journey home. At the end of the day all I could say is goodbye and thank you very much Morocco for a wonderful experience. View the journey in Google Maps.
From Chefchaouen I took a long afternoon bus to the great port city of Tangier. The city is notable for it’s unique cultural feel thanks to Mediterranean influences. Although once one of the seediest cities in Morroco it was cleaned up at the insistence of King Mohammed VI. We will stop shortly for dinner at an ocean front restaurant then take an overnight train to Marrakech. View the journey in Google Maps.
