The 2017 Demo Reel!

Here is one video from the fun series of commercials I shot (as Director of Photography and Videographer) for Mercedes and their Electric Drive Smart Car. The video’s were shot over two days in Portland exclusively using DSLR equipment – a mix of Canon 5d Mark II and Canon 1d Mark IV bodies. Editing and post production was done by Torque Creative, Mercedes-Benz’s in house production company.

Author Christian Piatt asked me to produce a series of videos that would narrate key chapters from his “Banned Questions” books. We shot pilot material and five episodes over several days on location in Portland using two Canon 1D Mark IV DSLRs and a Canon XF100 for the steadycam shots.

A video produced about the Beer & Hymns gathering held at First Christian Church in Portland, Oregon. The event is a collaboration between First Christian Church and The Bridge Christian Church in Portland.

The video was linked to an NPR report on Beer & Hymns gatherings around the nation. You can even see NPR religion reporter, John Burnett, with his microphone and headphones on at the end of the opening scene.

One of a series of 10 interviews with faith leaders and activists around the world produced for the World YWCA, the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance, and the WCC to help promote a new initiative on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR).
