1. CREATIVE MINDS IN TORONTO is a film program that provides an opportunity for filmmakers to showcase their work and a platform for students and entry level professionals to connect with companies that can launch their careers.
    The program is broken down into three components: "THE INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE," "THE FILMMAKER INSTITUTE" AND "THE NETWORK CONNECTION." Each program component is specifically designed to aid participants in expanding their knowledge of the film business, while also affording them the opportunity to make key contacts that will help them establish a career in the film industry.
    It is our mission to find the next generation of talented film & tv professionals and usher them into the entertainment industry. To date we’ve brought over 600 students to film festivals all over the world, setup more then 300 internships, produced over 60 films and provided over 50 jobs for our alumni. The 2013 Creative Minds In Toronto Film Program will take place September 4th – 12th, 2013 in Toronto, Canada.

    I directed, shot, and edited this film for The Creative Mind Group in Los Angeles, CA.

  3. Kaua'i is seriously the most beautiful place on earth, with it's mountains, beaches, caves, valleys, palm-trees, cliffs, and people. We were captivated by the natural beauty of almost everything we shot around the hotel property. The people that we met on the island were some of the most genuine, down-to-earth, and fun people. There wasn't a down moment on this shoot, getting to kayak, golf, waterslide, cliff-jump, eat, time-lapse, swim, body-surf, and hike.

    We spent three days finding & capturing the story of the Grand Hyatt Kaua'i and following the adventure of Janel and Bryan on their wedding week. They were both really fun, easy-going, and caring -- it was a joy to be around them.

    Special thanks to Ian Pratt, my partner for shooting some awesome shots, and making the adventure even more epic.

  4. Every wedding shoot is an opportunity to love and encourage the bride and groom on one of the biggest days of their life and I believe it is a blessing and privilege to do this. Additionally, getting to see the behind the scenes of these events and meeting the amazing staff that put on each wedding at the Hyatt Huntington Beach is a really unique opportunity. We were honored to meet people from almost every section of the Resort, and they made the whole weekend of shooting a blast. It was inspiring to see the attention to detail and genuine care that each staff member showed towards the wedding party and our shooting crew.

    Special thanks to my awesome partner Ian Pratt (@ipratt) for making every shoot way more fun, relaxed, and enjoyable. It's always a treat to feel inspired, pushed, and encouraged to work hard, love people better, and enjoy what we do --- and that is exactly what Ian does when we shoot together.

    Also, thanks to Cathy, Kelly, Tracy, Nancy and all the other Hyatt staff for the help in making this film happen.

    Behind the scenes commentary:

    Typically wedding shoots happen within the space of one day, but when it comes to making a film for a client like Hyatt Resorts, one day of shooting would barely touch the surface of all things awesome that tell the story of the resort and the couple getting married. We flew on the day of the rehearsal, had breakfast pulled the cameras out to get a few shots of them rehearsing, then straight to the grooms party walking in and the brides party going to the salon for mani's and pedi's. Then we rushed to get the kitchen prep and the grooms party hanging out at the pool, finishing the day with a time-lapse setup from the presidential suite. The nice part was getting to actually enjoy the resort amidst the shooting, but more specifically during the down-time. On the wedding day, we woke-up to shoot the ceremony prep, the reception preparations, the bridal prep, the groom and bride prep, along with more hotel b-roll and setup, and finally the ceremony and reception, squeezing in sunset shots before it got dark. All the hustle and bustle was worth it looking back, we couldn't have told the full story if we shot any less footage.

    Continuing with the Hyatt Resort collection, we were able to produce this film for the Hyatt in Huntington Beach.

    Read the full blog post here on the story behind making this film and the brand Jedidiah:
    colincabalka.com/post/33866040221/jedidiah

    The goal with this piece was to create an engaging film that introduced the upcoming 2012 Winter Collection of Jedidiah clothes in a catchy way that grabs an audience and gets them all wound up and involved in the moment. With the brand being out of San Diego, I was shipped a box and had nothing other than some phone calls and Skype calls to firm everything up. Got the box of Jedidiah clothes in the mail, cast a few people I knew, and went off to explore more of the city of Portland bringing the cameras and my awesome talent with me. It was so fun adventuring and living out the story of the video while shooting. Favorite moments were spent on the quiet streets of SW Portland on my longboard skating up and down with the steadicam and TJ in a few different outfits on bikes and a longboard. Loved that through making this, we just got to bask in the cool crisp beautiful fall sunlight and venture deep through the lush color-changing forests of the pacific northwest. I think autumn is my favorite season, or at least it is quickly becoming my favorite.

    To me, the collection is about being an adventurer, a free-spirit, one in touch with their purpose and I wanted to capture that in the movement of the camera, the lens flares, the editing, and even the music.
