We Are Bedford

Had the chance to collaborate this month with Andie Redwine and By The Glass Productions on this short promotional film for the city of Bedford, Indiana. We shot for a week in Bedford and then edited the video together for a presentation the city had. Happy to see the finished product on YouTube.

I shot on the Canon 5D Mark III and edited with FCPX. I’m really loving the Mark III. Thanks to Andie for writing a great script and working with me to produce a video we can all be proud of. Bedford is a fantastic community and it was a great experience capturing and sharing their story.

Tornado Aftermath, On the Ground in Oklahoma

Honored to be shooting for Samaritan’s Purse this week in Oklahoma as they get started helping people clean up and get back on their feet. My Dad, 73 years young, works for Samaritan’s Purse. It’s great to get a chance to see up close how the organization works. They do an amazing job. Being at ground zero in some of the hard hit neighborhoods is an incredibly moving experience. I will never forget. I shot the above video for them yesterday in the hardest hit area of Shawnee.

Vampire Prom 2009

The 2009 Vampire Prom was a big party thrown by the Alamo Drafthouse to celebrate the release of Twilight. My friend David J Neff of We Say So Media helped throw and promote the party in conjunction with the Alamo and Austin’s Mansion of Terror. I just showed up with a camera and then cut this together with great music from The Brakes and Ravens and Chimes (a big thanks to Dave Brown of Holiday Matinee for getting us permission to use the songs). Austin is a super cool place to be.

Reagan High School video by The Austin Stone


Missional Community-Reagan High School from The Austin Stone on Vimeo.

The Austin Stone Community Church is a church that is really having a positive impact on the Austin community. And Jeremy Rogers, their Video Production Manager, is doing a wonderful job of making videos that describe and reveal some of that impact. I’ve had the priviledge to work with Jeremy on a couple of the videos for the Austin Stone (not this one), and I really appreciate his eye and his ability to get at the emotional core of a story. This is just a beautiful video that tells a meaningful story about how we can get involved in our communities and make a difference.
