Caitlin + Thad

Caitlin + Thad shared an intimate wedding together with 40 of their closest friends + family in Yosemite, CA. Everything about this wedding was beautiful + authentic. We were so honored when Caitlin told us Thad was a big fan of ours and she wanted us to be her surprise wedding gift to him. We really do love this couple + can't wait to get their full highlight film out to them.

KILIMANJARO WARRIORS: A Monumental Goal for Recovery

In February 2014, a group of amputee veterans set forth on a monumental goal for recovery, to climb the world’s tallest free-standing mountain: Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft). Consisting of six amputees and five wingman climbers,the Kilimanjaro Warriors hiked the mountain for eight days overcoming insurmountable obstacles and new challenges with each passing mile; trusting that determination, heart and undeniable grit can triumph over disability.

The Land I Was Born On

The Land I Was Born On: “When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.” - Jiddu Krishnamurti Shot in Dharavi, Mumbai - one of the largest slums in the world by Composer / Film Maker Niraj Chag. This is a track from his latest album titled "Mud Doll". The piece is an exploration of Nationalism and National identity. Composed, arranged, mixed and mastered by Niraj Chag at Buzz-erk Studios London. Taken from the album 'Mud Doll'.

Sleepmakeswaves - Great Northern (official music video)

An early labour of love project completed over 8x weekends for Sydney post-rock band Sleepmakewaves. I met Alex from SMW at a Brisbane gig and from there we collaborated to make this simple story about a frustrated scientist converting his thoughts into reality. Building a machine that would allow him to travel as a mysterious energy. Filmed in my old tool shed out in the sticks and out and around the area - this project was completed over 8x weekends with over 30+ visual effects shots.

B R E A K A W A Y | Restart | Official Video

This was a fun project filmed in my home garage, filmed all on black with some very inexpensive light set-ups. Initially this music video was going to be very different - black & white with cymatic footage I’d filmed the day after comped and overlaid. Playing around with the initial cymatic footage i’d filmed for their band photo i’d found a more interesting creative using simple backwards light particles which for the band conveyed the idea of ‘letting go to begin again’. With only 2x weeks and 80+ effects shots this was a real challenge for just one person but it wouldn’t of looked as great without filmconvert!

Meghan & Matthew Rhoades Wedding

Last Fall, on a crisp autumn evening in Oct, I had the pleasure of capturing Meghan & Matthew Rhoades wedding at Oxon Hill Manor in Maryland. Working alongside talented photog, Kate Palker, and her great stable of shooters from Pearly Kate Photography, I was able to record every milestone of the big day. Running the show was Tori from Candy + Company, making sure the whole event came together perfectly. Last but not least, Meghan and Matthew's friends and family came out in full force to support their loved ones. And the trailer above is mere snapshot of the love and affection that went into making such a lovely day possible.

my grand-aunt mimi.

My grand-aunt Mimi asked if I could help her share the story of her life. Something like this is impossible to give justice in an 8 minute piece, but all I can hope is that the enormous amount of life that she had in her soul is apparent to all of those who watch this. I was fortunate to be able to finish the film and travel back to Washington in early July to show the film to Mimi at her beloved cabin on Whidbey Island. Unfortunately, a little over a month later Mimi had a sudden illness followed by a stroke with several complications, she passed away on September 26th, 2016. In this moment, Mimi would prefer us celebrate her life, rather than be saddened by her death. So, here's to Mimi! I hope this film encourages those who see it to take a moment and capture a story from one of their elders on whatever media is available. The worth of these stories is invaluable and life can take sudden, unexpected turns. Love you Mimi.
