About J

I'm a Cinematographer/Lighting Director based in New England. I am skilled and trained in lighting for both digital and film.

As a Cinematographer I use every skill, trick and piece of knowledge I have in my field to visually build the director's image with equipment available. I can skillfully use all the shiny knew toys available to create that look but at the same time my skills are not solely based on having everything I could ever want at my disposal. In the world of Indie Film one must work with the budget and tools given to them to make the best and desired look for the project. I pride myself in my ability to make a small budget look grant and a grant budget look subtle. An audience, no matter how film tech savvy, should never guess what Camera and Lighting had at their disposal. The look of the film should be invisible but moving.

As Director of Photography I have been nominated as Best Cinematographer for "The Disco Exorcist" by the judges of Killer Film Festival 2011.

As Editor I have worked on feature film, short film, music videos and corporate video. I am trained to use FCP, Premiere and Sony Vegas. I also have experience doing motion graphics with After Effects CS5.5

Finally as a Writer I have written several screenplays and stageplays and work to consult on others' scripts that need polishing or edits (heavy or minor).
