TIGER

  1. 15 Years in the making!
    "Tiger" is the story of boxer Gary "Tiger" Balletto, who became a world champion boxer. Through his title he tried to unionize the sport of boxing to protect fighters in and out of the ring. Although, Tiger Balletto fought like a champion in the ropes, his greatest battle lies outside the ring.

  3. Although this is an excerpt, I am truly proud of having been able to capture this moment. Gary, being paralyzed and unable to walk, was working on visualizing himself walking. I simply filmed various moments of this hour or so process. I would grab shots of his face, various angles of his legs, and then, filmed and filmed the close-up of his feet. The structure and passiveness of the scene may make it feel like it is scripted. I assure you it is not. It is edited in the nature of mediation and patience.

    The following is a miraculous moment captured while filming the story TIGER.

  4. Moments such as this does not occur without incredible trust between the filmmaker and the subjects he or she is filming.

    The following is a moment captured in the feature documentary "TIGER".
    Shot on July 21, 2013 in ICU, 21 days after Gary's accident. Gary was unable to talk, and doctors were not sure if he would ever be able to speak or breath on his own.

    Shooting with Epic Red, 50mm anamorphic lens, I framed up a side shot of Gary and Chrissy, and captured an endearing moment of love and happiness in the midst of a tragic situation.
