Don’t Think Twice

I was invited to this Press event for a film called, “Don’t Think Twice”. It stars Keegan-Michael Key, Kate Micucci, and Mike Birbiglia (who also wrote and directed it) to name a few.

They each did interviews with everyone like a roundtable, describing how the movie came about and how Mike pretty much wrote a movie about Keegan’s life.  Among a group of Improv friends, a few make it big, which causes tension in the group.

You can view each interview here:

Gleason

Last night, I was invited to record more interview for a special screening of the documentary, Gleason, at the LA Live Regal Theater.

I saw various celebrities/cast and crew for the film, including Steve Gleason, himself, and his wife, Michel Varisco.

We interviewed a few people, including Nick Cannon, Michel Varisco, Scott Fujita (Producer, Football Player), and Director Clay Tweel. There were some other people on the list that we thought we would see, but they snuck in.

The documentary is about Steve Gleason, a former NFL player who played for the New Orleans Saints. He made a play that became well-known in Saints history. He blocked a punt by Atlanta Falcon’s Michael Koenen in the first quarter. He was later diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The film documents his life and struggles with ALS, as well as the team/foundation called, Team Gleason, that he creates to help others with the disease.

It is raw and emotional with funny moments and I recommend all of you to see it.

 

ESPY Awards Celebrity Connected Gifting Suite

While editing AX photos, I got a text from my client about an opportunity for a camera job for red carpet events. A friend of hers was looking for someone to film interviews with various celebrities and athletes and I gave them a call. He gave me details of what he needed and what was going to happen. He even has a YouTube channel that you can check out here.

As I got there, I met with him and I was told where to be to film interviews. It was really exciting! I met various celebrities like Keith David, David Koechner, and Sean Patrick Flanery, to name a few. There were athletes like wrestler, Cody Rhodes, and Donovan McNabb.

There were some things, however, that I need to correct for the next event, such as having better audio, but you live and you learn. I did get photos of some guests at the event.

Enjoy!

Anime Expo 2016 Day 1

While it was quite crowded this year, I made the best of it. There were different compositions that I wanted to get, as well as group shots, but the crowding made it difficult, especially with a 50mm lens. I did what I could though.

Day 2 is coming soon!
