In 2018, I set out to to focus on lighting. Not that I want to be the gaffer necessarily, but I wanted to have and perfect the lighting tools in my arsenal. There are things you can cut corners on or DIY. Among those, lighting is the most challenging to fake. When you have the right tools, you can do incredible things! For this set we used two Aputure LS C300ds that we scooped and pushed through a 12’x12’ butterfly overhead for a smooth, shadowless set fill. We placed a third C300d on the 45 angle and put an Aputure Lightdome over it for direct, but soft key. A window behind the talent gave way to an Aputure LS C120t with CT to about 4,700k. The end result was nothing but gorgeous beauty lighting! I’m a believer that lighting is everything. Spend your money wisely and you can incredible things! S/O to the amazing crew the built the set, decorated it, light, recorded and otherwise captured this long, wonderful shoot. https://buff.ly/2mL2Om7

A little freezing rain won’t stop this crew. Had a blast shooting pickups with these cats this morning. Constantly growing the community of talented film folks. https://buff.ly/2D48XUL

Community is everything. The more voices and perspectives you incorporate into your creativity, the more creative you can be. It isn’t about being inclusive, it’s about avoiding exclusivity. Bring people into your circle that push you to rethink and reshape yourself. Elevate others. Love everyone. • • • Another still from a secret project. I can’t wait to post about this thing! 📸 @jack_oats https://buff.ly/2DkKRT3

Come out and be a part of the amazing filmmaking community we have in Michigan. • • • • “Our mission is to increase cultural diversity and interest in tech films and to promote, discuss and educate in the medium of science fiction and technology.

Looking back over a wonderful year, there’s so much to be grateful for. To everyone with whom I had the pleasure of working with, thank you! It was truly an honor collaborating with so many talented people. To those whom I have yet to work with, 2018 is going to be a wonderful year. I’m looking forward to expanding and growing the network of creatives here in Michigan. Let’s get it! https://buff.ly/2CxkZ6j

Find places that inspire you. Use that inspiration for good. That good should elevate others. This time of year (and every time of year) be kind. Happy Holidays! https://buff.ly/2CXGmgT
