    Work in movies. Not television.

    One thing I hate about Television is the production value, and don't get me wrong. To work in TV you have to be talented and extremely quick, but I personally like how films allow for slightly longer production schedules and more time to get it artistically correct. I just watched a bit of...

    Best T3i settings

    Hey ya'all. I'm loving my T3i. I'm now called a "hybrid" on set because I'm walking around with mics and sound gear as well as a T3i around my neck snapping photos and taking BTS film.

    Bye Bye Lakers

    Goodbye Lakers. I will always remember 2002 Western Conference Finals and the paid-off officiating against the Kings which allowed the Lakers to walk into the Finals. Go "drown your sorrows at the pub" again, Kobe. Next year, the Lakers will be a mid-level team and the few years after that...
