For several years my friend and talented Director and Musician Jorge Rubiera has been writing his short film Meniscus. Today we embarked on bringing his story to life on the farms of Fayetteville, North Carolina using the Panasonic AG-HPX170. We have a young but talented cast lead by Jorge as we trod through the streams and cow pastures of the rural countryside. I’m the DP and steadicam operator on the shoot, which will be done over three months. Down home fried chicken, friends, and a great location (I think that’s what Jean-Luc Godard said 🙂

After one week of shooting we shall reconvene in Miami, Florida at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum to shoot the opening of the film on the historic trains

Ah! The sweet taste of “the wrap” on the final day of shooting on the feature film “Watching TV with the Red Chinese,” directed by Shimon Dotan and shot in New York City.  I was the 2nd AC on this shoot as well as the Unit Photographer.  We shot on the Panavised F900 with a great set of Panavision zoom lenses.  The shoot was a great learning experience and an eye opening departure from the world of still photography.  My friends Mike Rossetti (DP), Eric Kim (1st AC) and Michael Fuchs (Steadicam Operator) did a great job on the set.
