I had the opportunity to co-produce, direct, and shoot a YouTube web series with Adam Buck, for Red Bull Media House in 2012 called Winch Sessions. This was by far my favorite episode, and some of my crews best work. Along with amazing imagery, you get to learn how cranberries are harvested.
No berries were destroyed while making this. Cranberries are tough as hell, there was zero waste of food. As far as sanitation goes, it's an open body of water. A few dudes in wetsuits wont hurt a thing.

LightSpin is an experimental photography and art project that finds its source in a unique lightpainting technique. For this project, ten performers improvised contemporary dance movements at the center of a ring on which 24 cameras were mounted. Their brief dances were carried out in pitch darkness, light being aimed at the subjects as to reveal their shapes and movements, thus capturing their passage in a defined space. Pushing the exploration even further, the final result of this project becomes a fully animated, 360-degree representation of movements! Viewed and shared on the Web, the LightSpin project is launched as a world premiere in honor of the International Dance Day.
