    Claire and I recently took a trip to France, and I filmed this during our time in Paris. Until this trip, I had only ever experienced Paris in the summer and I was struck by just how different the city is when most of us tourist are gone. We were equipped with our metro and museum passes and were able to easily access most places of interest without even waiting in line. It was incredible! We were even given a private tour of the École du Louvre. Thanks Elisabeth!

    The weather wasn't always perfect, but our experience was totally different and unique. Now I'm truly curious to visit the city in other seasons. Maybe a trip during the Fall someday?

    I continue to be amazed by the little camera that could, aka the the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. I have yet to shoot ProRes or DNxHD, though I've seen amazing footage that was shot in the compressed modes. For me it's all about the uncompressed raw. It's not the easiest or fastest format to work with in post, but it allows me to color grade the images to get exactly the look I'm after.

    I had the latest firmware for this shoot and put the timelapse feature to use. It's not going to replace a DSLR for serious timelapse work, but it is an amazing companion in my opinion. It can shoot consistently at higher frame rates than a DSLR can sustain, so shots where you only want a subtle timelapse effect are achievable. You can also shoot with longer intervals, but the slowest shutter speed is still only 1/24th of a second so shots become less smooth the longer your interval is. Ideally, you'd want to be closer to a 180 degree shutter.

  3. Our video for the dinner hosted in Brooklyn, NY and featured in Issue 4 of Kinfolk Magazine (kinfolkmag.com), a quarterly publication based in Portland, OR. The Kinfolk dinners and community gatherings are an invitation to engagement: engaging with new skills, new relationships, and a refreshed understanding of the physical world around us. We'll focus on cooking, gardening, the culture of the table, and other hands-on practices we find life-enriching.

    "Brooklyn emanates an energy that can be frenzied, frenetic and crazy-making, but this same effervescence can be channeled into collaborative magic; then, a pocket of quiet calm descends on the city. We felt this sense of surprising tranquility at our meal in the open, lofty Green Building—though we were not subdued, but rather lulled into happy contentment by a perfectly satisfying feast, a sunlit table and a room filled with warm, inspiring souls. The dinner and the social that followed were the whirlwind result of countless hands preparing, chopping, slicing, crafting, wrapping, arranging and, most of all, giving. The open-handedness of those involved in this gathering is what gave the evening a spirit of restful joy." —Features Editor Julie Pointer
