Authentic Content Promo Reel 2017

Having been an agent for commercial artists for a couple of decades and now promoting myself as the creative I am SO much more empathetic to the difficulty of deciding what to show. Creating a "sizzle" reel is a process of selecting the best new work, parting ways with some old favorites, and combining it, somehow, into a visual narrative.

This is the best of what I do. This is what I love to do. This is me, without me being in front of the camera.

It is safe to say that I am a generalist within the broad niche of people-based videos. Yes, I've shot some products and done it well, but I sing best (no, you don't want to hear that!) with a person in front of the camera. I work with directors or by myself, with on-camera interviewers or by myself, with a crew of many or of very few. Often it is myself, or myself and one person that can capture a nice interview or testimonial.

In the past year I have vastly upgraded my equipment. In truth, given pretty much any camera I can capture a still or video clip of interest, but quality of the digital information, audio and video alike, does make a difference. Most of the newer work is at the front end of this reel. I think the difference shows.

So, take a look. Give a call. I am easy to talk to!

Cystic Fibrosis “2017 Winemasters Fundraiser”

One of the best events of the year and a perennial top 10 charity wine auction, A Culinary Evening with The California Winemasters held at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, sold out again. With 50 internationally recognized chefs and 75 top wineries donating their time, talents and treasures in benefit of The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation it is an evening to remember.
