84' Porsche 911 Targa

Today, Another manifestation…

If you know me, you know a red Porsche 911 from the 80’s is my shit. That is my next weekend car.
And with that being said, Today I had the pleasure to DP a gig in Borrego Springs and film a 84’ 911 Targa with the Red Dragon. Talk about manifesting down to the details. Even when we are at our lowest we have to remind ourselves to reflect on all the accomplishments we have conquered whether they are small or large. Small goals help us project to the bigger goals we have. I am in awe that today happened. A simple reminder to not give up and make shit happen. I hope I can keep inspiring others along my journey.

48 Hour Film Project

So I had the pleasure to be a part of the San Diego 48 Hour Film Project for the first time, And guess what? We fucking won the Audience Choice Award for our screening group. I honestly was not expecting anything. But let me tell you the shit we went through to get there, It consists of 44 hours of no sleep. Lots of coffee, Red Bull, and a whole lot of patience.

As part of the film challenge we had to include these requirements:
Genre: Road Story
Character: Fernando Huerto (Lifeguard)
Line of Dialog: "That's (that is) outside of my comfort zone."
Object: Cardboard Box

You are given these details at 7:30PM Friday and film needs to be turned in by Sunday at 7:30PM
NOT a second late!

We turned in our film at 7:29PM! We rendered the final export in downtown Gaslamp area at 7:08 and finished exporting at 7:13pm, transferred to a thumb drive and given to our runner to deliver to Mission Valley and turned in by 7:29. 

I swear we lived a moment as if we were in a movie. Literally the last minute possible. It was the most beautiful nightmare. 

The experience was crazy. Never thought I would stay up for 44 hours to work on a project nonstop, that was the moment I realized I really love doing what I do. Filming all day on a boat on Saturday, running on 2 hours of sleep from Friday night s staying up late with the writers writing the script. We continued shooting and editing Saturday night through Sunday morning. Continuing to film more scenes on Sunday and have the finished project turned in by 7:30

With that being said. I hope you enjoy the film we put together within 48 hours :)

 

 

Comic Con 2018 Themed Party

I recently photographed a Comic Con themed party during the weekend of Comic Con.

Being at the highest point of downtown at the tallest apartment building in the city, The golden hour lighting came in for the rescue like a super hero.
