Mauna Lani Wedding

25 Mar

For the past few days I’ve been editing the latest wedding shoot as well as trailer:

To celebrate last night as I uploaded this- I edited some more of Subjective Expressions! Definitely needs a good sound mix in certain scenes- but overall I’m very satisfied with the performances and final video quality from the 5D Mark II.
Ordered a viewfinder for my camera after dealing with the crazy sun during the wedding.
More amazing updates to come! Please enjoy the video

From Monday through Friday I assisted my father, alongside with Carly (the beautiful actress in the production stills) with a children’s (keiki) art camp in Volcano here on the Big Isle. Children are so much fun. They can energize me and take everything out of me..
When we could all three of us would go on location for a few moments of shooting. I managed to get some really excellent scenes that I’m incredibly happy with.
The week concluded with a short film presented to all the parents and children. Carly and I shot and edited the piece together- it was really enjoyable to watch it on a massive screen with everyone. Especially when Carly and I edited it roughly an hour before showing it!

Thought after such a crazy week of children energy and filming that I’d have a peaceful weekend. Turned out to be the largest wedding shoot of my life. My mother, father, Carly and myself shot a massive wedding at Mauna Lani- with a tv crew (episode to be aired in the summer) for an upcoming show. Super long day with amazing food at the end. Still have left overs in the fridge 🙂
Teaser should be up soon- currently compressing all 4 camera files..
Today to treat myself finally to some peace- I synced all the current footage for Subjective Expressions. Took some time- but definitely worth it. The film looks so fantastic. A long journey still ahead, but I’m blessed to have whats been coming so far.
I’d like to send out a special thanks to my friend, Yvette, who has been very awesome and loving this past week ❤

Lyon Short film

12 Mar

When I was in Lyon, France I shot a short film with my good friend, Hugo. I came up with the visual concepts prior to my arrival- and with the incredible support of Hugo did I shoot the film. I left France a few months earlier than I meant to and was too shook up when I returned home to Hawaii to finish any films I made. Now that its already March (returned in Nov.) I’m slowly catching up with my Europe work
This is the first of more to come


8 Mar

Alright- after 3 months of experimenting and testing out the new camera- I have fully produced a conceptual trailer to let everyone know what the film should look like
Check out the fundraising page and trailer!
