I have had a few weeks of taking it easy around the studio but for the last few days I have been gearing up to DP a film in the Bloodshots 48 hour film challenge. This is one of the bigger and longer running film competitions in Vancouver and always draws big crowds and great film makers.
I am excited to be a part of a great team being led by producers/ writers/ directors Izaiah Kane and Panayioti Yannitsos and a whole crew of talented folks. My camera team will be myself as DP and camera operator with Curtis Nicholls as my 1st AC and a couple young guys I have not yet met as 2nd AC and trainee. Handling the lights will be Gaffer Jeff Zwicker who I have not had the pleasure to work with yet but I’m sure will be fantastic.
I have been making my list and checking it twice (camera and lighting package list that is) and if our proposed sponsorships come threw we should have a very drool worthy camera/ lens package.
I will be updating the progress of our team this week as everything comes together and I will try to keep up a behind the scenes live blog during the shoot days next weekend. We have a meeting with all the Keys tomorrow evening so I should know more by then.
Keep checking back.
