Oh, The Power

A dance to "Oh The Power" by Kari Jobe. Created for Denver United Church's Passion Sunday presentation. I was asked by Denver United Church located on South Broadway in Denver, CO to collaborate in creating a creative video sequence to be used in part of their emotional Passion Sunday presentation, which is otherwise known as Palm Sunday, the Sunday preceding Good Friday which is the day Christians celebrate Christ’s crucifixion. Lyndsi, the creative director mentioned she had a couple dancers willing to participate and wondered what we could create. I suggested using the church’s very cool large video display as an animated backdrop for the dance performance. “What about purple with a slow upward graphic?” I asked. “That’s amazing because purple is the color scheme I was thinking of!” she replied. Ok, I guess we’re on the same page.

I’m really happy with this end result as it’s just a matter of kicking around ideas and collaborating with other inspired imaginations.

Quasar Science lights added to the kit

I want to do more to alert clients as to the cool equipment that’s available in my kit so that we can be more collaborative. How will you know the capabilities if I’m not letting you know? So, in that spirit I’ve added 3 amazingly cool lights from Quasar Science to my kit. I now have one 2’ rainbow tube, which is commonly referred to as RGBW, meaning it can mix any color for a desired effect, saturation or color temperature. It can also do some effects for narrative work like cop lights, tv, club or short circuit. I’ve also added two 2’ crossfade tubes which fade from warm to cool. You can see the demonstration in my self portrait below. They can also just be used as normal key and fill lights and are small enough to pack in my travel kit. So, let’s get creative!

See you on set.

"Rivers, Paths and Bridges" an exploration of Bear Creek Park

After moving to Denver, CO from CT this year I was fortunate enough to have Bear Creek Park just down the street from my house in Lakewood. This is a little compilation of shots I did at the park over several weeks using my DJI Phantom 4 drone and some locked off shots with Sony a7SII.

Coming from the east coast I did not grow up with accessible parks and outdoors experiences so this is me paying respect to my new home and all the inspiration it gives me.
