Additional Skills from Camera Operation

I started out as a news cameraman and also had to edit, mix sound, assist in the studio and on production trucks providing a variety of varied expertises during my early career. I also picked up more applied experience working in film production before the eclipse of HD. There is still a demand in film among some aficionados I work with as well. I have also provided myself as a DP on independant films and have also provided location sound and lighting on major motion picture films. I have also provided second unit and behind the scenes materials for Paramount, Sony Pictures, Mirimax, and Lucas Films. I'm always up for learning new cameras, camera technology, post production, lighting techniques and the post production pipeline. I'm also avid in post and editing, data wrangling, transcoding and file transfer between platforms and operating systems. I'm adept and mixing / recoding sound as I had to by myself as a news cameraman in my early career. I still shoot ENG for all the major US and some foreign networks as well by myself or bringing crews. I have also provided gaffer and electric services on large sets, and have also worked large grip trucks and on large film production sets (Catch & Release, The Red Baron, Romanek for larger scale motion pictures).

Aside from all the crew & production expertise, think of other solutions in my talents, and feel free to contact me at (720) 299-2084 by phone.
