So this was pretty cool. Earlier this year I was given the opportunity to step up from camera operator to director of photography on a TV show that’s aired around the world. Thanks to a lot of hard work, prep and a very talented cast and crew, we shot a full one hour episode in just a day! And shooting in a bar made for a great wrap party. 🎥🍻
And that’s a wrap! 🎥 Ten weeks on location and now all that’s left to do is pack my bags. I had a great time filming with this very talented crew. Now it’s on to the next project!
