Working on the shot with Paul Meyers my DP.  Byron, 1st AC working on focus.
The RED Epic + Cooke S4's = crazy good footage.

nike spot

The spot is now live http://EDdirects.com/nike.php

I played lots of basketball as a kid.  I was fast but man was I short.  I remember this one kid in 8th grade who could dunk from what seemed like the free throw line.  He could flat out fly.


ny times spot

You can check out the finished spot here: eddirects.com/nytimes.php

I had a paper route when I was a boy growing up in Southern California.  I loved being alone on the streets during those early mornings.  Hearing the birds chirping, feeling the wind on my face and the excitement of pedaling along effortlessly while making money seemed like a dream.  A couple hundred dollars a month was a ton of money to a kid in the early 90's-  You know, I needed hypercolor t-shirts, slap wristbands and Air Jordans of course!



This spot is now on my director's reel site- EDdirects.com

edward jones spot

I directed another spot two weeks ago.  The talent, wardrobe and location collided again to make this piece visually beautiful.  We couldn't have done it without our phenomenally talented crew. It's currently in post and coming along nicely.   My director's reel website should be live in the next few weeks-


NHL tv spot

I've been working on producing my directors reel for the last few months.  These are the screen grabs from the spot I directed last Friday.  The spot is currently in post and is coming along nicely.  

The location, talent, wardrobe and concept kind of collided over top of me and my DP Paul Meyers during the shoot resulting in the above.  I'll post the final spot soon-


documentary shoot with jimmer fredette

I had the opportunity to shoot and spend a few days with Jimmer Fredette in Glens Falls, NY this past summer.  The kid can score the basketball, no question about it.  More than that though, he was raised the right way and it shows in the way he lives his personal life as well as his attitude on the court.
