Je m’appelle… Pinochet. 22 Sept 2009.

Dog? Dictator? You decide… This is one of my fishing buddies from the Big Wood river in Ketchum, ID. He appeared out of nowhere. He barked. He swam. He got an assist on a 13″ trout. He told bust-a-gut jokes. You know how boring casting can get, right? The bottom snap is the front doorContinue reading “Je m’appelle… Pinochet. 22 Sept 2009.”

Larry Madaras. Feature Film Editor. 4 Sept 2009.

Queensborough Bridge, NYC. 31 Jul 2009.

We used QbB as a test location for a “work-in-progress”, to see if we could capture what the script encapsulates, visually.

We filmed with a ©RED One fitted with a ©RED PrimeContinue reading “Queensborough Bridge, NYC. 31 Jul 2009.”

Moses Kororia. Kenyan. 22 May 2009.
