Congratulations Jessica Chastain! Oscar Nomination for "The Eyes of Tammy Faye"
I had the good fortune of being the EPK DP for "The Eyes of Tammy Faye" in 2019, so it was great to see Jessica Chastain receive an Oscar nomination today! The footage we shot is now "The Making Of: The Eyes of Tammy Faye", currently available as an accompaniment to the film on HBO+. This marks the second time I have worked on a film that led to an Oscar nomination for the lead actress. The first was Frances McDormand and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri". I expect Jessica to have the same success that Frances enjoyed in 2018. Thank you to Gregg Temkin and Mob Scene for the opportunity!
Mel Gibson Interview/Boys Of Summer EPK
Film icon Mel Gibson was in Southport, NC shooting the independent feature film "Boys of Summer", and I had the opportunity to shoot his EPK interview and BTS of the production. Mel was a pleasure to work with and a class act - even when the mayor of Southport crashed his interview! (https://youtu.be/vcPWFbNA5uI)
As and admitted "gear head", I love to get new equipment! This month I have added two new cameras to my arsenal: Sony FX9 and Sony FX3. Both have Sony's amazing Full Frame Sensor, with the FX9 capable of 6k, and the FX3 at 4k. Both of these cameras will add another layer of versatility and quality to my work.
