    11-11-11 One Day on Earth – Boston

    Up until the final moments before sunset I still had no idea what I was going to do for One Day on Earth this year. As a matter of fact, I had been so busy working all day, I was about to blow the whole thing off and head home… until I saw the sun setting across the street from the TV studio along the Charles River, a place where only a few weeks ago had been the staging area […]

    BTS from Big Ole’ Lens Test Party – Macomber Productions

                  So… what do you do when you are invited to hang at a lens test party with a bunch of cinematographers slinging cool gear and a promise of free food? A sort of lingerie party for guys? You shoot a BTS short film of course! And that’s exactly what I did as DPs Ben Eckstein, Chris Loughran and the gang scrutinized a plethora of lenses ranging in price from $350 to $20,000 on […]

    Selamat Hari Raya Singapore

                                      Singapore. It keeps calling me. Small – but big. A bustling metropolis – but super clean. People have asked me if the rumors about chewing gum being illegal there are true.  In a way… yes. Gum was banned in Singapore in 1992. The importing or sale of gum was banned as well. That’s one of the reasons the city stays so spotless. So […]

    Tekka Market Trailer, Little India in Singapore

                                    Back in Singapore again. I’ve pretty much seen most of this tiny island by now, even if it keeps evolving each time I come back. The Chinese are pumping money into the economy and the current commercial construction here would make your head spin. One of my facebook friends said it best when viewing the photo of Marina Bay Center I posted below: “What […]

    Northeastern University Physics Co-op Promo

                  This DSLR short was part of a series of three promotional films for Northeastern University in Boston. There were lots of locations for the interviews so we had many setups and break downs during the day. Some of the interviews were shot with natural light and some were lit.                                                 […]

    Tornado Aftermath

    It’s rare that you’ll ever read a blog from me about my experiences while working my day job at CBS. I’m usually too busy driving to distant locations, gathering interviews and b roll shots, editing under the gun, exporting the timeline sequence minutes before we go on TV to feed back to the station via satellite or microwave truck and finally rushing out to the live camera location to report the story to our viewers. But on this day as […]

    One Day on Earth 10-10-10

                    This is my contribution to 10-10-10 One Day on Earth, documenting the planet in one day. It was a real run and gun last minute shoot for me. Up until a few days before D-Day I was still unsure about what my subject matter would be. Add the fact that I had a paying gig later that same day and ladies and gents… you got a possible situation here. Suddenly I was […]
