GOT TO WATCH!

One of my favorite apps out there is Vimeo, because I can see the work of other Filmmakers and learn -visually speaking- of their techniques and final results, and obviously get inspired with their work.

These are 3 of my favorite videos and favorite Indie Filmmakers so far (no hollywood famous) Take a look and get inspired :)

DANIEL CLOUD CAMPOS / music videos

he creativity here amazed me, realizing that you don't have to get $100K in equipment just to get the result you're looking for, creativity starts in the simplest things that surrounds you, and the best of all.. creativity is yours, and is free, it's what makes people call you by your name when your work is recognized.

The blurry movement effect was obtained by putting a bunch $4 lightbulbs in front of the lens, filmed in a 3 sets Studio.

Final Result: Freaking amazing.

JAMES MILLER / storyteller

I love the way James illustrate the story, you notice that he've been a long day with the subject because of the different scenarios, his B-roll is cinematically awesome and his color grading is not a favorite of a few, but for small screens for me this is a truly piece of Art and a customer very happy.

Final result: INSPIRING

 

DAMIEN KRISL / ADVERTISEMENT 

His mind is full of prisms, his vision is amazing and you can find a new concept in every video he has made, very versatile, very visual, definitely an inspiration to not be afraid to experiment.

Final result: STUNNING

Dave Katz Vid

Today I had the chance to film a Video Portrait about a great Photographer and Journalisn Filmmaker and truly down to earth person, Dave Katz from Ithaca NY. 

I was surprised when he told me about his travels around the world, to Central and South America, Japan and many places more, his job is pretty impressive. He's the creator of the website "Tenacity In Pursuit" (www.tenacityinpursuit.com) where you can find all the work done by Dave through the past 5 years. 

You can watch his video reel 2015 here:

Here's the final product for his Portrait Video in my Portfolio, definitely truly honored to meet people like Dave in the Big City.

Video Contest.

Hey. 

I applied weeks ago to a School Company searching for a NY Filmmaker, so from around 300 appliers they have chosen only 6 to compete, making an 2mins inspirational video about one of its Graduates/Students, applying the Mission and Vision of the School.

Winner will get a full time salary basis position in the School as Filmmaker, so here it is my piece, enjoy it and please.. wish me luck ;)

Fall Sessions

Fall always bring those colors that make you feel like living your life in the mountains, in front of a beautiful lake and having an enormous dog, I know I've watched too much movies haha, but it brings you the feeling of a whole new chapter.

Fall is like living the memory of someone you loved or you're still loving, I could pass a whole day in Central Park shooting people walking alone for hours, with one only thought in their minds.... that person.

Fall Photoshoot definitely are one of my favorites, no doubt that the results will last forever.

Back on track.

Have been a pretty busy and productive week. I'm having the pleasure and the chance to film an Inspirational video for A.R.T. the Academy of Responsible Tattooing.

It's impressive how an idea can become so big and grow in so many ways, and the best of all.. helping to other people to grow with them.

I met Eric, a Graduate who now is actually working in one of the Tattoo Shops founded by the school, giving the chance to the graduates to make a living of their apprentice, and I could see proud and happiness in his eyes, there are always struggles when you're finding yourself, when who you are is fighting against who you want to be, and no matter what.. the real you is more powerful than any doctrine, or any stereotype, being yourself and doing what you love becomes the purpose of your life.

It would be great that if you have a friend who wants to become a Tattoo Artist tell him about this school, all the info you can find it at: www.tattooschool-art.com

Im pretty sure that if you're reading this it wouldn't be a coincidence.

Good luck!
