  • This image is from the opening scene of Cuck. Because @cuckthefilm is a subjective, expressionist character study, we wanted a cold open that symbolizes and reflects the character and tone of the film, while setting its events into motion. ⁠
.⁠
We settled on shooting the scene with obscured, fragmented images with heavy negative space and shadow. This sort of abstraction forces the audience to piece together a portrait of this fractured, isolated character, which acts as a metaphor for the experience of the rest of the film. As previously mentioned Tulsa by Larry Clark was a heavy influence.⁠
.⁠
We used a warm practical on the left of frame to offset the cool light poking in through the curtains. The power of color separation is it allows you to control where the audience looks and the contrast accentuates how cold the surroundings are. This same idea applies to luminance and a few hot points within frame actually extends a feeling of darkness to the entire image.⁠
.⁠
The movie is available on VOD on Itunes, Amazon Prime, and other platforms.⁠

  • I know I’m a day late, but happy Veteran’s Day. A few months ago I teamed up with @ryansawtelle and @achuffa to shoot another video documenting one of the warriors from @whiteheart . For a few days I got to hear Sgt. Joe Lowrey’s story - While serving in July of 2014, Joseph was shot in his helmet by a PKM round during an intense firefight with Taliban Insurgents. Here are a few screen grabs from the shoot, and images of the helmet that saved his life - you can still see the bullet hole. Can’t wait to share this film w/ you guys when its publicly released. #happyveteransday #whiteheartfoundation

  • A glimpse behind the scenes of new short film Lamara which I shot with the wonderful director @boyoonha in remote parts of Uganda over the last 3 weeks.

What an incredible adventure getting to know the country this way and meeting all the beautiful people that helped us along the way.
