Had the privilege of contributing camera work yesterday to Al’Amriki (The American) an eight-part interactive docu-series following social media and human rights activist, Hazem Farraj, as he explores the roots of Radical Islamic Terrorism through his own personal experience with religious persecution.
We visited the FBI office in Rochester, NY to see a presentation to local press specifically including two Rochester based ISIS sanctioned attackers who never ultimately achieved their objective thanks to the very fine work and dedication of the FBI.
Got out to The Flower City to shoot a 2 camera interview for Michelle Malkin Investigates with an interesting gent from the former USSR. First thing on the agenda was a shot of cognac, not vodka, haha. Anyway, Misha, our interview subject, spent time in the Russian navy and of course had many interesting stories to tell. Only problem was, he only spoke Russian, so I can only imagine.
Spent 4 days out on the beautiful lower Niagara river near Lewiston, NY recently with the crew from Leiter Outdoors to shoot steelhead fishing for their new adventure doc “Ice Fishing Hardcore.” Thankfully, I thought to wear my thermal underwear. Brisk!
Sat down with photographer Stephen Gabris last week for a little podcast action, talking about being a cinematographer and such. Maybe someone can watch and let me know how it is? (I can’t watch myself.)
Back in September I served as DP on this ambitious run and gun piece for Niagara USA. The original concept involved mimicking selfie-cam with our real people talent so we used a mix of faux and real selfie-cam as well as some aerial footage.
