I’m a Los Angeles-based filmmaker who occasionally makes the ends meet by doing some work as a front end web developer. I own a Sony FS700 and Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q+, as well as a lighting/grip package. I shoot web series, short films, industrials, and whatever else you or I can think up.
I edit using Adobe Premiere Pro, do compositing and ridiculous effects in After Effects (check out the end of Frank Buxton, Supernatural Exterminator, for example), and create graphics and touch up images in Photoshop. I have worked as a DP, camera operator, camera assistant, gaffer, grip/electric, boom operator, and more. I’ve occasionally moved outside the realm of moving pictures to do lighting for fashion stills (occasionally with household-named celebrities under the strobes) or shot events on my trusty Canon 7D.
I’m a bit of a smarty-pants, and graduated magna cum laude from the film school at Brigham Young University. Starvation and the prospect of being ousted from my domicile later induced me to teach myself web development with the help of Lynda.com and a couple of “For Dummies” books. I have built sites for both big famous clients like Honda Powersports and Sony Pictures International and for little clients that you haven’t yet heard of.
In the meantime, I have managed to shoot a number projects, many of which you can view right here on my website by visiting my video gallery. If you only have a minute, but still want a sense of my body of work, you can watch my reel. If you’re interested in hiring me for a production, but first want to know what I come with, you can check out my various equipment packages.
On the other hand, if you’re more interested in web work, you can see a list of my past web projects. I code websites predominantly using HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, and PHP, and my bread and butter of late has been in the WordPress universe, but I have also worked in Java and .NET environments, and with products like Drupal (yuck) and Magento.
