Two man crew capturing arial footage with a DJI Inspire.
I can put four notches in my belt after this one. A mark for each charter school location where the crew captured interviews, class room sequences, arial footage, b-roll and time lapses. These guys are like working with the A-Team. Everyone rolls in with their specific skill set, and in the words of the week, the team “dominates” the job. In the photos above, George of Stearns Media is piloting, and Jon Brysh is operating the drone’s camera.
This short film is a suspense/slasher concept. It’s also a love letter to my camera. I developed the concept around the time that I was doing a lot of timelapse and long exposure photography. I was also spending some time shooting video of landscapes, like the Mt. Pollux video I shot last winter. I knew I wanted to juxtapose the serene beauty of the idealized wild with the frenzied blood bath that nature really is.
A few crude storyboards I made “Long Exposure” scenes
We had to re-shoot a few sequences. The first attempt to shoot the stabbing scene didn’t pan out so well. There were some nice shots, but the sequence as a whole wasn’t working in context of what the (lack of) budget could pull off. Night time crept up quickly and cut short what I had planned to capture that day. So we walked away with no usable footage, but a better understanding of how and what to shoot next time. Here’s the original stabbing scene.
Whether you sold your home to finance your 35mm masterpiece, or you made it last night in your basement — if your movie is under 10 minutes, we’ll screen it.
Each month is a new assortment of short films, animations, documentaries, student films, works in progress and more. When the screenings are over, we meet at Grainne O’Malley’s Tavern (201 Harvard St, Brookline, MA) to drink, eat, talk, rub elbows and make new friends.

A few quick looks at a reality show satire video that I was on this week. I operated second camera and assisted with lighting. The project was for a private school’s musical, and we used their performance stage to shoot and light. We brought some daylight fluorescents but were also able to use the stage lights to add creative flairs.
