Had a great opportunity to head down to Lizard Lick, NC and shoot the stars of TruTV’s Lizard Lick Towing!

Now I’m always hesitant to shoot stars, because I have had my bad run-in with egos and attitude problems and such… but you won’t meet a nicer bunch than the folks down at LLT.

Don’t think it’s just the Carolina upbringing either, Ron, Amy, Bobby, and the whole Lizard Lick crew will take time out of their busy schedules to take photos and talk with all the fans that come through town daily, (upwards of 2,000 a week)!

So subscribe to the blog for more lizard lick updates coming soon, and as always… when in the lick, do what the lick do!

Been busting the preverbal butt this week, wrapping up edits, and bringing several interesting jobs to a close. Before I can post those (waiting for the magazines to go to print) here is a still from the upcoming music video we filmed for Justice.

Love makin’ and Photo takein’!

Back in from a busy weekend!

Last Werd Arts Group R&B artist Justice flew in from Atlanta this weekend so we could start filming the music video for his latest single “All I Got.”

With a great crew and great weather we knocked it out! A little short of 12 hours, this is probably the fastest filmed music video in history. Did some great DIY on set, built a dolly/jib out of a wheelchair! I will try to get a tutorial up on PhotoBrew ASAP.

I would like to thank my assistant Guy, as well as Team Justice: Tank & Savage.

Here are some preliminary screens from the video:

It’s very exciting to almost be finished with another short film. We have one more day of filming and then two days in post, and I couldn’t be happier to be working with such a great and talented crew!

“Epic Beer Brothers: Easter Bunny Blitz is a gateway into the lives of the Beer Brothers, contract killers with a hit list of outlandish and (sometimes) heavily armed individuals. Though the series was only meant to be short-lived, it’s underground popularity (mostly close friends) have now spawned their own YouTube Channel which will feature non-other-than… you guessed it, their very own Beer & Food Show! Expect Epic Beer Brothers to launch this Summer!

Here are a couple more stills from the editing process:

Throwing out tons of videos this month! Got the Carolina Still promo on deck, as well as 3 shorts that are [slowly] working their way through production.

Here is a little teaser for the upcoming Carolina Still Promotional Video that we have been working on. Please go give them a listen, they are an amazing local act!

We shot some of the footage at 60fps, and I have actually got the frame rate up to 1500fps! Don’t sweat… I will be releasing a tutorial on how to get your fps up to 1500!

Finishing up most of the composite work for the next short… here are another set of preview images.

I never have like location scouting, but the weather is perfect to do so… so I am out to scout today for my shoot on Tuesday with Carolina Still.

HAPPY SATURDAY!

Been doing some 3D compositing with a new short we are working on.

Still some bit of footage to shoot, but overall the process is coming together nicely… I was quite worried about the visuals… but as you can see, the plan is coming together!

And yes that is the Easter Bunny with an Easter Egg Bazooka!
