Thanks for all of your extraordinary work on behalf of all the new technology... Back in the day I was the Cinematographer on 2 Clint Eastwood film, presently I'm a film professor & reference many of your films for my Cinematography & Directing classes... Especially your film using the Sony A7s at the beach at night: ISO 40,000 to 80,000!!! Outstanding! Talk about "disrupting" Hollywood!!! You certainly no longer need trucks full of equipment & crews to shoot at night. Viva la revolution!

Beautifully Done! Where can I sign up for this job! Stay in an amazing hotel & shoot the view from your room with a variety of long lenses! & include a lovely time-laps transition to evening as a grace note... Kudos!

Pretty amazing pictures, The one of your parents is perhaps the best I have seen that you have posted.  A large sensor does make a difference, that bokeh separation is so smooth. Congrats on the CNN job, quite impressive once in a lifetime opportunity.

A brilliant short film that graphically demonstrates that you no longer need Trucks full of Lighting & Grip Equipment, or their expensive crews in order to shoot a film at night...
