Sounds of Iceland

For my 2018 trip to Iceland, I noticed that every place I went had such distinct sounds. Using Filmconvert, I collected and organized the footage I'd shot and turned it into a beautiful showcase of images and audio from all over the island. This is a sonic journey across the land of ice and fire.

Brigid & Ben

Brigid & Ben are childhood sweethearts, and their journey into adulthood has brought it's own trials. Their wedding day was a celebration of their love and resilience together. This 3 minute version is a snippet of their day, focusing on the Ceremony. Less cinematic than most wedding videos today, I try to focus on being in the moment with the couple and making videos that are a representation of them.

Sony a6500, KD P400 Ptra

After a decade of working in the animation and VFX industry I've decided to dive into live action filmmaking. Here’s my live action reel: …and my Hobbit Animation Reel: This short film started out as a test of my new gimbal. The whole cast and crew consisted of me and my wife Agata Szczepanska. It was especially challenging to have both of us on the screen. Most shots were shot one a Sony a6500 with 18-105 f/4 on a Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2 Gimbal. All shots inside the car and few additional closeups shot with a Sony a7SII with FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens. Additionally I used a RØDE VideoMic Pro and a shoulder rig. Edited on Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Music ( Heritage by Quinn Erwin. Sound Design by Ben Sanders.
