The drought is taking a toll on Texas and I wanted to help the people in the Panhandle tell their story. The video reflects the nature of the Panhandle. It’s patient, quiet, and I hope it draws people in with the beauty of the land and the solid character of the people.

Congress Avenue, Austin TX

Here’s a little video project I did almost a year ago. It’s in the mode of the 5×5 as seen on Vimeo, that’s five, five second clips. It’s a challenging way to tell a story. I shot in on Congress Avenue in Austin while experimenting with depth of field and color. As soon as the fall weather turns cold and we get some rain I’ll shoot another one.

Christopher Doyle and Wong Kar-Wai

I’m starting a series on some of my favorite cinematographers, beginning with Christopher Doyle, the man behind the color palettes and visions of many of the movies of Wong Kar-Wai, including “Day’s of Being Wild,” “Chungking Express,” “Fallen Angels,” “Ashes of Time,” “In the Mood for Love,” and “2046.”

At its best, the relationship between director and cinematographer is like that of all great relationships, there’s a time when one leads,
Mood 1






a time when the other leads,
mood 2

and a time when they are joined.
mood 3

I’m going to take a close look at the movies these two have made together as well as the work they’ve produced individually to see how they’ve created some of the most beautiful and stunning art that always leaves me wanting more.
