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.
I had a fantastic time shooting this video for ATI. They’re fantastic people who create businesses and create solutions and it was great to help them celebrate.
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.
All of you who know Sara or have seen her in concert, you know how much charisma and talent she has, so when she asked if I’d make a video with her I knew it’d be a lot of fun. Her sister, Gabrielle, is the dancer, and her brother-in-law is her partner.
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.”
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.
