Today has been really exiting for the new film by myself and Coe Doulas. It was uploaded to current.tv yesturday and climbed to the #2 film in less than 24 hours. Coe and I have had a great time putting this short film “Paperhand Puppet Intervention, Activists in Their Community“together. We had help from Christian Parsons and Carolyn de Berry in making the project happen. We first talked to Donovan at Paperhand in the winter, so it has taken almost 8 months to get this completed. Thanks to Jan Burger and Donovan Zimmerman at Paperhand Puppet Intervention for having us in their studio and for talking about the experiences. They have a great show in progress now please support these guys. Also thank you to everyone who has voted our film up in the current.tv count.
Our Film “The Hourglass” won an award for best Art Direction. As I said before we had a great team and everyone worked really hard. The shoot day was long and very hot, then came the edit. We were ahead on our edit plan and went home to sleep.

We just finished doing the 48 Hour Film Project. It was 2 long days of writing, shooting and editing, we did a film titled ” The Hourglass”. We had a great crew and cast plus we got our film in on time. Our team is called General Pictures and this is the 5th year they have entered, my 3rd year serving as Director of Photography. Check back to see the film after it plays in the festival on June 28th.
Last night (actually early this morning) we finished shooting a new commercial for Mohawk Flooring. We had a great cast of 3, crew of 23, plus 5 dogs for a 9 hour shoot. We shot a large beautiful set with 2 rooms and then converted the set. The shoot was done with a Varicam on a Jimmy Jib built at 18 feet. The dogs added so much life and action to the look and feel and gave the actors great action to play off of, thanks to Bonnie and friends. Everyone worked really hard through the night to make this project look it’s best. Here are a few excellent production shots by our trusty RCC intern Carolyn.
We currently have a few projects going for currentTV.com , stories in production include a story on a group that uses puppets for community activism. I have also just finished shooting new still photos for the College Foundation of NC as well as UNCG.
