Just finished the first leg of the Hip Hop Evolution show. Now I am told that it is not a TV series but 2 feature length documentaries. The first feature taking us up to Hip Hop having spread across the entire US – which really means tons of NYC! Met a lot of stars and some legends but meeting Charles Ahearn was special because he’s the true kindred spirit: photographer, film maker, collector! Respect.
I have been asked not to publish any of my on set stills until the films are being released but this one is none specific with regards to talent but yet represents for me NYC perfection – late afternoon on a front stoop!
Except it being NYC people will stop their cars and shout out shit. People really love to recognize in that town!
One long weekend in Mallorca with several street artists – it was planned as a “get to know each other” time but we ended up making a small film about the art and artists. Wide Walls are planning more events in the future and we hope to be brought along too! Check out www.widewalls.ch for more info.
Banger just dropped the opener for Grizzly Cup that I shot in June. Disney are very happy with the show and depending on feedback after the screening we will know if they pick it up for a season or more. Good times! Jesse Shamata directing the vignette was a real pleasure to work with and I hope to work with him again. Art Director Aaron Smith and his crew were also vital to the production so I hope to bring the team back together again for the eventual shooting of the show. Fingers crossed but I think that Walt would be proud!
Finally shot the final episode of Metal Evolution. This being the “bonus” episode that the broadcaster deemed too extreme but has now been crowd funded. Norwegian Black Metal, Death, Grindcore, etc… A crazy two week schedule that took me to Oslo, Zurich, Clisson (Hellfest), Bristol, Dublin and Birmingham. Found the above Connor Herrington piece in a back alley in the Templar Bar area of Dublin. Sam and Scot have now been educated!
Had to pleasure of DP’ing the opening vignettes with Jesse Shamata directing and then operated on the show for Disney. Muskoka is a magical place.
Here Art Director Aaron Smith takes a high dive on our last evening at the Grizzly Cup camp. Aaron and his amazing crew did a fantastic job of contributing creatively to each and every shot!!!
Wide Walls teaser just dropped! Film coming soon.
Filming steadi in an undisclosed location for Green Mountain – your cloud is in a mountain…
Had the pleasure of being asked to document the beach paint jam during this Easter weekend. Good times!
“In 48 hours we took over Plaza de Espania in Portals Nous. A beautiful quiet bay next to the glamourous bay of Portals. The venue was the original hotel of the bay built in the 50′s it hasn’t weathered the storm of years well.” from widewalls.ch
