Video: Junker Designs for Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

  I was recently enlisted by friend and owner of Junker Designs, Tod Waters to shoot and edit a promo piece for Jane Goodall’s Roots&Shoots program. I already had some B-roll in the can from an artist profile piece that I’m making about Tod so all we had to do was shoot the stand up segment that morning. I’m not entirely sure what this program is all about, but it has something to do with an event in London and this piece will be featured at that event.   This…

Documentary: When We Ruled H-Town

Documentary: When We Ruled H-Town

  A look back at a documentary that I was an associate producer on as well as being featured in as a musician.   When We Ruled H-Town is the story of the 90’s Houston music scene. 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…

Love Kills in Fashion Video

Love Kills in Fashion Video

  For many years it has been my job to create original content whether it be visual, audible or both at the same time. Still photography will always have a place in the lexicon of media, but video is now an all important marketing and advertising tool on social media platforms. Images must move these days.   With that in mind, I have made many promotional videos for the fashion industry. Most of them start out as behind the scenes footage during a photo shoot. In these situations, time and…

What’s up with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR?

What’s up with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR?

It’s been a long wait and after all the reviews have come in, the comments are all very similar. What’s the point? That’s really the consensus. I’m a die hard Canon fan from way back. I’ve never even considered using a Nikon camera. But even after all the years that the 5D series has been around, I’ve never wanted to own one. Functionality in a camera is important, but price is important as well. Why spend $3500 on a camera body that you’ll immediately have to spend more money on,…

KFSTV Showing Experimental Movies by Jon White

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…

Marketing and Media at KBB

Marketing and Media at KBB

  On February 22, 2016 the production team and I arrived at the Kelly Blue Book offices in Irvine, CA at about 6am. We had three interviews scheduled with key individuals in the company that day. This was a follow up shoot. We shot several other interviews a couple months earlier along with the Upper Diamond marketing company in Los Angeles.   We have an efficient team that works well together. It consists of a director, producer, DP, camera operator, gaffer, grip and sound engineer. At this point we would…

The Best Golf Clubs Money Can Buy

The Best Golf Clubs Money Can Buy

The best golf clubs money can buy can’t help the short comings of the Long Beach chapter of the Mediocre Golf Association. The 2013 season was a struggle for all players, but it was at the Fore! Cinco de Mayo-ish tournament that the beer fueled mayhem got the best of the team. How many MGA tour members can ride in one golf cart? Well, all of them! Many thanks to the El Dorado Golf Course for dealing with the team. It was my job as team documentarian to shoot and edit the highlight…

Punk Rock Isn’t Dead! Face to Face – Triple Crown of Shows

Punk Rock Isn’t Dead! Face to Face – Triple Crown of Shows

That’s right, punk rock isn’t dead! Face to Face returns to the Observatory for three sold out shows. This video was a marketing piece to tie in Face to Face with Lucky 13 Apparel and ASG Guitars. The band was in the middle of doing their Triple Crown of Shows at the Observatory in Orange County. Over a couple days Todd Huber and I shot Face to Face with very much the same style we used when shooting Agnostic Front a couple months prior, leading up to the release of…

Gritty in the City with Lucky 13

Gritty in the City with Lucky 13

   Shot on a rare rainy day in Alhambra. We needed to quickly capture a day in the life of a custom car builder. To create a sense of being immersed in the lifestyle, we pulled back the color so that it feels as though you are remembering being there rather than watching it happen in real time. This is just one of the many branded content pieces we shot last year for Lucky 13 Apparel.   Get Some! www.Lucky13.com
