This was taken during our first day on set with main unit, during filming for Sky Fire (Tianhou was the working title). Director Simon West is in the straw hat, looking over our shoulders as we lined up the drone shot with the Alta 8 that was flying my Red Helium camera.

I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed. It’s now been over a year since my last entry, but it was one incredible journey since this time last year. I checked off a few major goals of mine, one of which was working on a huge blockbuster film. Late last year, myself and Chapman Aerial Productions’ Justin Chapman spent a month and a half at Pinewood Studios in Malaysia filming for the upcoming movie Sky Fire (the working title then was Tianhou). It was an unforgettable experience and one that wasn’t short of amazing special effects and tons of long, hard hours.

I’ve also worked as the director of photography on a recent Yamaha Guitars commercial, putting my trusty Red Helium to work paired with Zeiss CP.3 lenses. The entire crew was amazing to work with and the director Shai Harary made it a fun time to be on set. You can check out the full piece on the Video page of this website.

Some screen grabs from the Yamaha Guitars shoot. Gafer Konrad Sigurdsson was awesome to work with on this. His knowledge and experience was second to none.

Continuing to work with 805 Beer on their branded content campaigns has been something that really allows me to shoot a variety of different subjects, and the past year was no different. A lot of the content doesn’t come out for a few more months, and I can’t wait to see it all released. Below are some that were released recently. All the full short films can be seen on 805 Beer’s website, by clicking HERE.
