Melimel Director Frank Florencio

Melimel Director Frank Florencio DP Matt Workman Brendan Kyle Cochrane second unit DP. Another Frank Florencio production, big lights, generator truck, Matt Workman so overworked he was drinking Red Bull and eating crackers working on auto pilot. After a slew of videos he looked like he needed some well deserved rest. Nonetheless he was shooting great. At nine o'clock it was time for me to step up to the plate as Matt had another video!! I have to admit I was a little nervous trying to fill Matt's shoes over a hundred people outside, motorcycles, cars, and the biggest speaker system I have ever seen in a car. But it was great. Thanks to Frank and Matt looking forward to the finished product. Stay tuned more to come.

Spent some time with the crew on CSI:Miami and got a chance to check out the big dogs in action. Joe Chapelle is a very talented director and I was always a big fan of the Wire, hope to get to see Joe again and I always enjoy seeing the professionals in action. One day I hope to have a show of my own.

LA Trip Finished Script

Went to LA to complete feature film crime drama that I have been commissioned to write for over a year now. Great time, completed script, celebrated birthday, went to beach, met Jesse Terrero which was very cool, and am really looking to grow the company to start making some big projects out there. Great time and no matter what people say about LA if you work with good people you will be with good people.

Day 2 Exterior Less Than Jake

Day 2 Exterior Less Than Jake. Director Noah Shulman. Lots of street shots, handheld, and driving. DP Matt Workman doing what he does best - getting great coverage. Should turn out pretty good. Williamsburg is definitely a different place than it was ten years ago. I had to get the shot of the burner on the wall before it becomes a condo or a Starbucks.
