April and May have been very eventful months! I was able to work with a lot of new people on projects ranging from more Napa Valley Wineries, to 24 hour fitness shoots. It was also the first time I took an actual vacation in years! Though, most of my vacation was spent exploring Kauai to take awesome photos. Besides that I had the opportunity to shoot one of the most challenging and funnest shoots yet for Daisy Cottage Cheese.
At first you wouldn't think much of it but the scripts were funny, the concept was hilarious, and it was a very complicated logistical adventure. Luckily I didn't have to worry about too much of the logistical stuff but I did have to figure out technical parts for lighting and camera. Luckily I have an amazing team with me so I wasn't nervous. This post is going to breakdown the process and maybe tell a few stories.
First off, we had the pleasure of shooting at 32 Ten Studios in San Rafael that used to be owned and operated by ILM. Industrial Light & Magic or ILM as people in the business know it, is responsible for almost all the visual effects of every major motion picture. Specifically this sound stage was used to shoot VFX for Star Wars, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, War of the Worlds, and much much more!
