Just some of my favorite shots, with some of my favorite people, doing my favorite thing to do... Make films.
Here is the latest video I have been working on for Mimsy.
I am super stoked on how this video came out and I had an absolute blast working with these guys. All of which, are stand up gentleman. They have a fantastic sound that youre going to love.
Please take a minute and give it a watch and if you like it enough, give it a share!
Took the quad out for a day of fun in Great Bridge. Really starting to get the hang of it. The wind made for some shaky footage but I really am liking the outcome of the video.
Though its not quite available yet, I am very excited to show off some of the test footage from our first flight with our new video capable quadcopter! I have to say, this thing is outrageously cool and an absolute blast to fly. This is obviously going to take a bit of time to perfect flying and learning how to get the best footage possible, but this is the the first step in the eventual goal of offering aerial coverage for special events and businesses.
This past week I had the fantastic opportunity to work with local musicians The Framers in creating a new music video for them to use online and for press packages. We had an awesome time utilizing the new O'Connor Brewery location in Norfolk as well as the utilizing the beers! ;-)
The Framers are a 3 piece country/alt group that play severely catchy tunes all through out the Hampton Roads area.
Be sure to catch them at the Grand Opening of the new O'Connor Brewing Co. site on May 30th along with plenty of other local bands!
This past weekend I was called upon by an old friend to help shoot the finale of the first full on elite cheerleading documentary to ever be created. Kyle Goldberg and his brother Austin have spent nearly 3 months traveling America, following several of the top cheer leading teams in the nation leading up to the Nfinity Champions League Cheerleading Event. This competition brings the best teams in America together for an all out battle to determine the absolute elite team.
I was lucky enough to be involved in cinematography for this showdown in Atlanta and I am more than excited to see it screen this Thursday all across the U.S. and Canada.
Thats right. This film will be screening in a theater near you THIS THURSDAY!
To sum this up. This past weekend was one to remember. So much hard work with old and new friends... and some serious budget allowed for this film to be made. Go check it out this thursday in a theater near you.
I finally had the chance to shoot some video with my lovely wife, Anna Ard, and give her the chance to say a few words about the realty business. I can not recommend her enough to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She has grown up Chesapeake and knows the entire Hampton Roads realty business like the back of her hand.
So another year has passed. Proper Video has officially been in business for over 3 years. 2013 was a huge year for me. I worked with some absolutely amazing professionals, I was given the opportunity to shoot some of the most beautiful weddings, and I was even involved in my first short film. To say the very least 2013 was amazing to me and with 2014 already off to a roaring start, I am just so excited to see what else is in store for me this year. After spending countless hours going through last years footage, I have compiled what I believe to my best of the best from 2013. I hope you enjoy the Show Reel!
Hey there friends! Over the holiday season I was lucky enough to travel to the Midwest and visit my family. I had not been home for Christmas in over 6 years due to my time in the Navy. It was amazing to enjoy all of the old traditions that I had been missing out on. After our time in Kansas City, the wife and I headed south to Oklahoma City to visit her sister and our nephew Luke. We decided to go out to the well known area Brick Town in the downtown area. Luke spotted a group of horses and carriages and the rest is what follows in this video. Happy New Year!
This past weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to shoot Matt & Priscilla Gunter's special wedding day right here locally in Hampton Roads. To say the least, I was in awe at the beauty of this fantastic wedding. All of the children running around, racing to get ready in the morning, the smiles exchanged between the bride and groom during their "first look", and the unbelievable floral work by Daevid's OfNorfolk combined to make an absolutely unforgettable day.
Well midnight has come and gone so, Happy Thanksgiving!
