    Inside Johnny Chronic Trailer by Macomber Productions

    Some say their music is controversial. Most love them once they hear them perform live. Macomber Productions brings you the trailer for a new DSLR short film about two ordinary blue collar guys who kick some ass when they write… sing and play in local bars around the Boston area. It’s just a peek “INSIDE JOHNNY CHRONIC.” Shot and edited by Rick Macomber using a Canon T2i with a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 and H4n digital recorder Edited on FCP and […]

    Temple of Heavenly Happiness – Macomber Productions

    Thian Hock Keng, the “Temple of Heavenly Happiness” is the oldest Hokkien Chinese temple in Singapore. It was built from 1839-42 and dedicated to Ma Zu, the Chinese goddess of the sea. Sailors would seek her advice before embarking on voyages because of the widely held belief that she could predict the weather. Since I am a big fan of both history and architecture… I decided to check it out with my Canon T2i and my GorillaPod. On the morning […]

    Moment in San Diego

                    I was in San Diego for a few days with a Canon T2i, a 17-50mm f2.8 and my trusty Gorillapod.                 I didn’t go to shoot anything really. Basically just visiting my daughter. A personal trip. But I just couldn’t ignore the street musician with the Wayfarers on his weathered face playing classical guitar on Ocean Beach.               Or […]

    Macomber Productions Returns to Singapore

    Macomber Productions recently returned to Singapura, which is the Malay name for Singapore, meaning “The Lion City.” The Merlion statue, with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, watches over the city from Marina Bay at One Fullerton Place. It’s surrounded by Marina Park, the Esplanade, the Fullerton Hotel and the new Marina Sands Resort, three tall structures connected with a green roof deck designed in the shape of a Chinese character. Lazily winding it’s way […]

    Boston Marathon Photo Bridge “BTS” Blog

    To the news photojournalist the Boston Marathon isn’t about training for months in advance of the big day. Nor is it about shopping for fancy new running shoes and matching running attire.  For us it’s all about stringing and tie wrapping long video and audio cables under VIP stands and along the filthy gutters of Boylston Street. It’s about lugging heavy equipment up steep, rickety and narrow steps to the staging platform where around two dozen photogs will claim their tiny footprint and camp out  in […]

    Making of Air Traffic Controller “Brightest Moon”

    For those who have tried their hand at producing, directing and/or shooting music videos… you know the difficulties involved. Unless the band is already “sold out” and has boatloads of cash, you will usually be working on a very low budget – or in my case – no budget. So how did my friend, singer/songwriter Dave Munro and I brainstorm the official new “Brightest Moon” video for his band Air Traffic Controller (ATC) with no money and limited crew? I’ve […]

    “Notes On Video” Flour Bakery Promo

    I first met blogger Michael Murie when he answered one of my tweets on twitter I sent putting out the call for a crew and a glidecam for a music video I was producing for my friend Dave Munro and his band, Air Traffic Controller. Michael sent back a DM asking if he could shoot a “behind the scenes” video for his blog “Notes On Video” while I was working on our video, “Brightest Moon.” I said, “Yeah sure. Come down!” […]
