Elizabeth bought some new living and dining room furniture. We gave our old stuff to family that could use it and I decided to do a timelapse up from the entertainment center. 204 photos later and you get this.

 

Here are pics of our new furniture. Me like.

DIY Clappers

So, we’re gonna start shooting a movie soon and we don’t really need a big slate, but we do need a consistent “clap” in order to sync camera and external microphone audio in post.

Basically you need a sharp clap but not the big clapper. I could buy one but those suckers are about $45! Just for the arms!

So I made one for about $8.

It just kinda “edited” itself.

We filmed this project almost over 8 months. You can see some of the BTS and Gag reel below.

You can find the finished film here:

I RUN – a film project

by on Oct.27, 2015, under Creativity, Film making, Movies, Sony A6000, Video

With the help of my buddy John, we began a film project a while back. Using all my tricks in my bag and some of his – we finally completed the film project of him running.

I’ve always been impressed with runners, how some just “lope” like deer when running. I remember when John started running about 4 years ago and I was so impressed with how he trained. Then he ran a marathon and another. I remember following his progress. So I thought,

“I’m gonna show him running…”

My goal was to produce a “Nike-ish Under Armor” kinda ad.

This was a collaborative effort between him and I along with the support of my other family and friends.

  • John Espinosa, you filmed yourself running countless times and never argued when I asked you to “run again…but slower.”
  • Michael Martinez who ran behind him holding my camera on a 3 axis stabilizer.
  • Joaquin (my son) piloting the drone to get those awesome over head shots.
    I even flew it and got a shot I imagined! 
  • And to Angel and Mike who drove the truck while I hung out of the back filming John.

I’m glad I got this done. I really had fun and happy with the final product.

Using a Drone for my film project

Well technically – Joaquin did.”

I’m finishing up a project with my buddy John and he has a Quadcopter and I wanted to use it on a project I’m working on with him. Since he’s the subject, he can’t fly it so I drafted my son Joaquin to be the pilot since he’s got more experience in that area than me.

He flew one during High school and he’s much better with his hands (video games) than me!

Below is a very short clip of how he did. Stay tuned for the finished project!
