“DAD MOMENTS” – Short Film Shot on RED Scarlet-W and Leica R

Here’s a short film that I co-produced and shot. I’m proud of what we came out; it was one of those projects that everything just seemed to come together and felt “right.”

We had a pretty compressed schedule and wanted to release it in time for Father’s Day. From our first pre-production meeting to the final cut was a total of 1 month, 3 days of shooting, and 2 weeks of post.


Check out our final product:

We really couldn’t have done it with our awesome cast and crew.
