Wrangler

I’ve been getting consistent jobs from Wrangler of its sustainability department. The following video just launched.  I’ve shot the interview here in GSO & used existing B-ROLL to edit the piece.

TRAVEL : INDIA

Wow. What an epic trip that was. I just got back from working in India for 23 days shooting a documentary “Banjo Earth India”; showcasing my friend Andy Eversole, a banjo player in GSO. As he traveled through India, I captured video of every moment of him introducing American Banjo & collaborating with Indian musicians in variety of cities. You can think of it as similar to an Anthony Bourdain show, a travel show but based on music, not food.

For now, I’ve planned on creating 4 short one minute sneak peaks. Then a 45 minute full length & 3 minute sizzler will be published down the road.

Below are

  • a cool video I shot in Toronto during my 24 hr layover
  • Sneak Peak #2 of India “The golden triangle”
  • my favorite instagram posts from the trip

Property Brothers

on 3/12 Property Brothers production happened at my old employer, Albion Associates. I was hired as a sound tech. I was so happy to see Andy taking over my spot, doing a great job leading  the crew & directing the set.

A big gear upgrade

There certainly is a boundary between “need” vs “want” when it comes to purchasing & upgrading my gear. At this moment, maximizing the quality and efficiency are my top priorities and I had invested heavily on some new gear.

  • GH4 camera now brings me 4k in 60fps, 10bit video that are much sharper and dynamic. Paired with the metabone speed booster & canon prime lenses, this camera is a beast.
  • I bought a Rode NTG4+ and now the sound recorded using heavy duty XLR receiver that goes with GH4. This thing is beautiful.
  • I bought a few lenses to bring some interesting perspective to my work from super wide angle to shallow telephoto lenses, now I can cover everything exactly how I want.
  • Additional grip and transportation gear have been added to maximize efficiency and increase production speed.
