Regarding collaboration: I am very amenable to working in a mode best suited to the needs of a particular project. I can operate in run and gun style (moving quickly to gather b-roll or shoot walk and talks on a corporate video) or in a more refined mode (meticulously rehearsing and revising a shot for a feature or short). On set I am ever-conscious of providing material for a good editing session and keeping pace with the the days intended wrap time.
Diverse experience on corporate, commercials, music videos, indie features, myriad shorts and promos, dance/performance documentation. Work samples can be viewed on my web site.
Experience with 16mm film and full size HD cameras (Varicam, Sony F900, Red MX, Epic, Scarlet) as well as occasional 35mm shoots (Arriflex). Also work regularly with small format DV cameras (Panasonic HVX200 HMC150, AF100, DVX100) and DSLR format (Canon 7D, 5D). See my web site for detailed equipment list, rates, resume and photos.
I am based minutes from the Chicago loop and can quickly travel to most of the major Chicago rental facilities or downtown soundstages. I also have studio space available for camera prep'.
