  2. High-end cinematic images on low-end DSLRs. This video goes very in-depth into how the DSLR works – I cover everything you need to know about formats, codecs, and dynamic range in order to get the most cinematic images. I’ll be explaining how I creatively worked around the limitations of this low-end DSLR with a pretty bad codec and pretty bad dynamic range.

  4. I shot this film of a small hill-town in Italy in order to give the rest of the world a taste of its enthralling natural and anthropological beauty, a simple exercise in non-narrative video technique.
    The current city is over a thousand years old and home to one of the oldest universities in Italy.

    I managed to shoot this with very minimal equipment - just enough to fit in a small shoulder bag. If you're interested in how I shot this film, take a look at this behind-the-scenes article and video:
