First Praise and Worship Recording at the New Studio

I can’t call this the first shoot here at the new studio (we did a green-screen shoot with a DC artist for a project a couple days before), but it is Erica’s inaugural green-screen, praise-and-worship recording for online church services. We have recorded them at […]

The Little Things (7/2020)

Spent a little time with my Blackmagic Pocket 4K Camera and a Canon 100mm Macro lens capturing insects nearby. Nothing special. Just messing around. However, this was all done handheld with a camera that has no internal stabilizer. Sometimes I have to just get out […]

Darius and Rob Playing Basketball (11/2020)

I play outdoor basketball everyday the whether seems reasonable. That means anything above 48° F with enough sun radiating to warm any exposed skin. Basketball really is life in my world. I purchased a new gimbal for my camera (DJI Ronin RS 2) and wanted […]

Park Triangle Reel (2018)

I’m definitely not a reel person. It took me many years to even consider creating this. The idea of putting things I’ve done into a smaller is just so hard to do. We’ll do one for 2021 but hire someone else to do it. I […]

Trope Troupe: New Project and My Acting Debut

I’ve been working on a concept for a new web-based series over the past couple years, usually writing and collecting quirky stories, awkward situations and random sets of dialogue. I did all this with hopes that I’d gather a group of talented and dedicated actors […]
