Anatomy of an Edit

A little tutorial myself and my coworker put together for our students to teach different shot framing, camera techniques, and editing.

Nica POV

Well, I finally got the GoPro out into some real surf. Spent a week down in Nicaragua and surfed various spots around the Popoyo area. All of this footage is from Popoyo reef. Another post will be coming soon with more trip details and some photos. Special thanks to Waves of Love for housing and feeding us for a week.

Mountain Lodge Color Grade

Did a grading project awhile back for a real estate client. The footage was shot as RAW DNG image sequences on a Canon 5D. My initial thought was, “Great! just import the sequences natively into DaVinci Resolve and do everything right there!” No matter what I tried, I still felt like something was off, I wasn’t getting the results that I wanted.

MMI Scholarship Entry

I had a college student approach me and asked for help editing a video for her to enter in the Jeremy McGrath MMI Scholarship Video Contest. Being a college student, she really had no funds for the service. So, being the nice guy that I am, I decided to help her out anyways.

Cashew Funions

This is a little snack idea my wife came up with for seasoning cashews. All you need are the ingredients and a dehydrator. It's very simple to make, tastes great, and is a great snack to refuel mid surf session.

Addy's Morning at Ormond Beach

Took a trip to Ormond Beach on a beautiful Sunday morning and filmed my daughter playing. We then met up with my aunt for lunch and made our way home for the afternoon. I shot this using a Canon T2i loaded with Magic Lantern and the Cinestyle look. My lens was just the 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 kit lens. The edit was done in Final Cut Pro X. It's very different from what I'm used to, but the program is definitely growing on me. I finished by grading the entire edit in DaVinci Resolve. Music: "Old...

Whole Planet Foundation

This video was written by Whole Foods Market Winter Team Member Lauren Carder to be a training video for Whole Foods Market Team Members, educating them and making them aware of the Whole Planet Foundation. It was lit, shot, edited, colored, and animated by myself. The style we were going for was to be similar to the 1960s Batman series.

Quarter to 12

“Quarter to 12″ A Near Death Experience by Joseph Kellner “Quarter to 12″ is a short film about a near death experience that happened to Joseph Kellner. The experience changed his life. So much so, that he needed to tell his story. Wether you believe it or not, the story is amazing. And it makes one question what happens to us when we pass on. My roll: Editor & Colorist
