Working with friends has to be one of the best perks of my job! Who cares about the free car washes, the unlimited food from gourmet chefs and the cool bowling alley Google has on campus!!! Working with good friends is way better than all of that :)

The past couple of days I've spent time down in Long Beach, CA working with COTU Media which was started by a good college buddy of mine Mike DeLano. Mike and I worked on productions in school together and have been shooting many projects together over the past few years from here in the States to China. Just over the past decade his company has grown to include companies such as Kelly Blue Book, Volkswagen, Mazda, Lexus, KUKA and the list goes on! Working with Mike and the team he has built over the years has been such a privilege! The one thing Mike does that's as impressive as his work is that he knows how to bring really good people together. I don't just mean talent wise, I mean truly good people!

So if you're lucky enough to find those teams out there that make you happy beyond the work itself, hold onto them because in an industry filled with ego, these people are gold!!! I consider his entire team at COTU great friends and hope I'm lucky enough to work with them for years to come :) 

 

 

A little about me :)

Hey Everybody! So I'm starting a blog!!! As if you don't already have enough crap in your life to fill the day with ;) Anyway, I've strategically timed this post to come out on the day that French Press Films released their podcast they did with me talking about how I got started in the film industry, what my thoughts are on being a filmmaker and my process as a cinematographer. This podcast will give you insight into what my background is and why I'm so messed up ;) So if you are at all interested in spending an hour with me or even ten minutes then click the link which will take you to the podcast. I had a great time hanging with Andrew and Roman over at French Press and if you take a listen maybe you will too :)
