We shot this a few months ago in Miami under my production company 8112 Studios. Will do a full behind the scenes post for Fstoppers.com!
My production company, 8112 Studios, shot this music video for our friends Crash Boom Bang a few months ago. Below is a sneak peak of how we created the earthquake scene. Check out the video!
The fruits of my Valentines Day labor! If you follow my various forms of social media, Christine here was my date for Valentines Day. This was a personal shoot as part of my ongoing movie and TV car photo series “The Unicorn Project”: http://tinyurl.com/b4lhsac This photo is a composite of multiple exposures from my Phase One [...]
First of all, apologies for the few blog posts the past month. It has been a wild and diverse 2013 so far! In the past two weeks alone I shot a magazine cover in pittsburgh, taught photography to 250 people in DC (taught over 600 folks in the month of January), filmed a TV ad [...]
My 8112 Studios co-founder, Nicholas Cambata, and myself along with our great production team shot this a month or two ago for the new Key West Film Festival over a 1 day period. Shot on the Red Scarlet video camera. I think it came out great.
I did a blog post the other week previewing this shoot with some of our behind the scenes images. You can finally see the tv spot here now. Let me know what you think. It’s pretty wild how much work goes into just 30 seconds of footage! Special thanks to Bobby Hoffman of Manhattan Youth [...]
The past week or so, I have been in New York City shooting a couple of projects. One of my projects was a doozie… I was hired by the ad agency Tier 10 Marketing, under the creative direction of Scott Rodgers, to produce and film a new tv ad for Acura via the New York [...]
Just to warn you, this may be a little too racy to watch at the workplace… This is the video to the song that had everyone in the music world buzzing due to the Madonna and Deadmau5 twitter battle over it. The song, the buzz over the video, and my production company were all over [...]
I shot this music video with the new Red Epic camera with my 8112 Studios co-founder, Nicholas Cambata right in Washington DC. It debuted a week ago and has over 100k views on youtube alone. Aiming for 1 million views
I’ll be honest. We did this with practically no budget. We spent every penny we had for this project and called in all sorts of favors to get it done. The guys of Crash Boom Bang are old friends of us boys at 8112 Studios (my video production company with my co-founder Nicholas Cambata) and [...]
The $50 follow focus. A really cool product and another kickstarter success story raising over $100k, 10 times more than their goal and they still have 2 days left on their fundraising effort! I may have to order one or two of these for my production company, 8112 Studios. This is one of those things [...]
My video production company, 8112 Studios, was named the official delegation representing DC’s interests in filmmaking at Sundance by the DC government. Pretty big honor.

My second photoshoot with basketball player Rudy Gay is hot of the presses (you can see my first shoot with him here) in the new issue of Dime Magazine. I took these at the basketball courts he played on while growing up in the Baltimore, Maryland area. Most images were taking with a large softbox as [...]
Recently Nick and I had to film a TV spot in Mississippi on a farm. The client wanted to create a green screen that looked like a propped up movie wall in the middle of a field, while a speaking subject would walk across the screen. We decided to try and make one ourselves with [...]
About to start filming a music video with the new Red Epic M. 5k lines of beautiful resolution and up to 18 stops of dynamic range. I am very excited to shoot this music video with this bad boy. It’s going to be 2 days of heavy production, but it will be worth it. Keep [...]
You may recall my original blog post on this fun supercar photoshoot I did in Florida (if you haven’t seen it you should check it out first). I had the pleasure to be hired to shoot an amazing car collection, which included 2 ultra-rare special Bugatti Veyrons. For example, the silver Bugatti, as you will watch, [...]
Awhile ago I posted a blog about the release of our new music video “Love Is The Answer” for Ultra Records and artists Mya and Cedric Gervais shot by my film production company, 8112 Studios. It debuted a few months back on the Perez Hilton homepage. Finally, here is the making of the video… video… [...]
Around last week, the camera retailer Adorama contacted me to write an article for their Learning Center website. In honor of the upcoming MTV Music Awards, they wanted an article on my experience making music videos with Digital SLR’s. In my article “How I Made A Viral Music Video,” I go through the process of [...]
So this personal beard / hairy dude portrait series has started. Took my first two test portraits of friends Casey and Israel yesterday at Union 206 studios. Casey (left) even shaved his hair into a mohawk on set for the photoshoot. Now THAT is a good friend. I am scheduling more portraits for this personal series [...]
I was in the lovely state of New Jersey yesterday shooting ads for a yoga clothing line, DJ Skins, with my old buddy and client Josh Klenert creative-directing. I woke up and saw this literally sitting by my breakfast randomly… It’s one of my portraits of the beautiful poker player Beth Shak, who you may [...]
Had a fun photoshoot with my old friends in the band Crash Boom Bang for the cover of their upcoming album “These Wild Things” a month or so back. Ended up having the shoot at my apartment one night with a bunch of fun beautiful people. This is one of those days where you have [...]
Had a nice surprise this week when I found out this article came out about myself and my production company, 8112 Studios. Had no idea! Thanks Sean! The article: One thing about being a Production Assistant on a film set, whether it is 20, or 200 crew/talent/staff is that there is one thing guaranteed during [...]
