Man Vs. Shine (An homage)

Posted on May 28, 2010

Matt Duggan asked me to Photograph and help Produce season four of his hit web series, Man Vs.

In a single weekend, we shot three episodes. This is episode three. Production budgets and equipment allocations are typically very barebones for these episodes, but for this one, we landed a sweet, sweet pad to shoot at, with lots of natural light and pretty things to look at.

Man Vs. Cloverfield

Posted on Aug 20, 2009

Here’s a little ditty I shot for my Director buddy Matt Duggan. Matt asked me to be his Director of Photography, as well as to help Produce some episodes. In one weekend, we shot three episodes of the online series he created, Man Vs.

Budgets and equipment allocations are very barebones for these episodes. By stripping away the shoe polish and charging ourselves to shoot and finish quickly, we are able to spend most of our energy creating. To prepare for this episode, I watched Cloverfield a couple times so I could take cues instinctively. I’m very pleased with the end result, and thankful to Matt, Trevor, and Frank for bringing me in to their show.

Man Vs. Recession

Posted on Jun 28, 2009

Here’s a little ditty I shot for my Director buddy Matt Duggan. Matt asked me to be his Director of Photography, as well as to help Produce some episodes. In one weekend, we shot three episodes of the online series he created, Man Vs.

Budgets and equipment allocations are very barebones for these episodes. By stripping away the shoe polish and charging ourselves to shoot and finish quickly, we are able to spend most of our energy creating. To prepare for this episode, I watched a couple silent and early-era films. Then I put my own spin on Floyd’s death by opening the iris as he went into the light. That’s the type of magic that can only happen when you’ve got it all framed up, day-of. It was a happy little discovery, the kind I love.
