Panasonic AU-EVA1 5.7K Super 35mm Cinema Camera | Fill the Gap for $8K

  Earlier this month the Cine Gear Expo was in full swing at the Paramount Studios lot in Hollywood. For me, it’s a 2 1/2 block walk over to Paramount. I like to drop in every year if only for a few minutes to check out all the latest gadgets, gizmos and technology in the field of cinema. There was a lot of buzz surrounding the new Panasonic AU-EVA1 5.7K Super 35mm Cinema Camera. What I personally find interesting about the camera is that it has an EF lens mount,…

Photo Story: Miniature Perspectives

Photo Story: Miniature Perspectives

  Recently, I headed to Texas to shoot a couple music videos with Ashley Worhol, lead singer of the band Worhol. Fellow Houstonian Tod Waters, owner of Junker Designs was directing the videos and enlisted my services to DP the project.   One of the segments we were shooting required the use of miniature models to create forced perspectives. An old friend from the local Houston music scene, Kevin Forbes, was great help in providing and maintaining the models. It took quite a long time to line up the models…

An objective but nostalgic look at a not-so-distant past when a spark of energy, a deep pool of creativity, and insatiable curiosity brought musicians, artists, fans and an entire city together for a brief moment of greatness and excess during the 1990’s. Other cities may have made the headlines, but Houston made the…

KFSTV Showing Experimental Movies by Jon White

  KFSTV is a new internet TV station started by Tim Woodward of Skin Two just this year. Within KFSTV you will find documentaries, feature films, fashion, interviews and nightlife coverage. After noticing there was room for experimental content, I submitted a short movie I made a couple years back called Nylon Commander. Shortly after, Tim got back to me and the next day I had my own film makers page on the site.   I won’t give away the details of the movie I submitted, but if you have…
