As someone who spends most of his time working with different types of creative people, I do enjoy getting involved with young, talented artists in order to help them get their careers going. I'm in the unique position of being to help creative people from time to time and see this as an opportunity to give back to the world and pay off some karmic debts, if that makes sense.
So last month, the option came up for us to take drift film-maker Will Roegge to a FIA GT Race in Italy. I was pretty curious to see what he would do at a high end European GT race and put his name forward to be one of the shooters for our NFS Drivers Film project with Spitfire Films.
The main NFS Drivers film will focus on the GT1 class, but we decided to make this little Speedhunters Mediascape style film of the GT3 races just for fun.
It features footage from Will Roegge, Tripp from Spitfire Films on the Red Camera and a materials from yours truly.
If you liked our recent Formula D: The Story So Far film then this new video will certainly tickle your fancy.

Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.
I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper.
Here I've posted a short video made with the photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds).

Canon Philippines lent us a pre-production model of the 7d. We got it Tuesday 6pm and had to return it the following Thursday at noon.
We wanted to document something truly Filipino and came up with the idea of shooting a "Perya". There really is no direct equivalent in English. It's not as grand as a carnival, not as permanent and posh as an amusement park, there are no pumpkins nor cows in competition like a country fair. It is what it is - a Perya.
Shot in 1920 x 1080 at 24p. Transcoded to XDcam codec. Edited in Premiere Pro CS3.
No color grading was utilized.
No additional lights used.

This video is apart of an investigation into dreams.
Color is as much a symbol as is the imagery in a dream. Color appears to represent the emotional conditions that stimulated a dream or dream image. As with any other symbol, color combines with the imagery to form a more complete "meaning" for the dream image.
Shot using a Canon HF100.
Music by M83 - I Guess Im Floating.
