It’s Been A While

IT’S BEEN A WHILE

I was just going over my site to make sure everything is still in place and working properly, and I noticed that’s it’s been a while—like a really, really long time—since I updated my blog page with the latest news and happenings. LDM has been keeping busy since the beginning of 2017 with a variety of fun projects. I’ve mentioned on this blog before that I’m a huge fan of movies, both for the entertainment factor and the art that goes into filming and putting together a major motion picture. And over the past month, I’ve been working with Hollywood stuntman Corey Eubanks, shooting and editing together his Stunt Stories show. Each show features an in-depth interview with a stuntman or stunt woman, and the stories that these individuals tell are nothing short of pure entertainment. It’s cool for me to hear what they’ve gone through on the big budget movies that they’ve been involved with over the years. Corey himself has worked on just about ever major motion picture since he first got his break, driving the General Lee in the original “Dukes of Hazard” television show. In addition to Stunt Stories, I’ve also been staying busy with drone work, filming for some national television commercials and TV shows. You can see some of the work in the recently released Subaru commercial below. All in all, the beginning of the year has been all about filming/cinematography more so than still photography, which I’m pretty excited about. People that know me, know that cinematography is largely where my long-term goals are. If anyone cares… I’m going to try to update this blog a little more often—at least more than twice a year. Until next time…

Hollywood

Hollywood

I’ll be the first to admit it—I’m a closet movie nerd. I love watching movies and have a pretty hefty collection of films saved not only in DVD form, but in my XBOX movie library. And when I recently got the chance to walk around the back lot of Warner Brothers in Hollywood for a top-secret Read Meta Magazine shoot, it took all I had to hold back a huge shit-eating grin. I felt a lot like I would image a fat kid might feel as he watches freshly glazed Krispy Kremes pass by on the wire conveyor belt. I wasn’t able to shoot much more than what you see here, which I poached with my camera phone, but suffice to say, there was a lot going on—grips and camera operators running around with carts full of equipment, sets being built, and actors picking up their wardrobe. I only spent a short amount of time there , but it was definitely a cool experience getting a chance to peek behind the curtain.

Everywhere you looked, there was a lot going on.

The sets and streets inside were very cool to see.
