Making videos with babies and parents for Grabease

I’d like to think of myself as a versatile filmmaker and videographer. Creating this video for Grabease was a challenge because it was my first time working with babies. They’re tough to work with and don’t follow directions as often as you like, though their cuteness makes up for the temper tantrums and frustrated takes. I enjoyed working with Grabease and making content outside of my usual genres, and learned a lot from the process. I feel that it’s important to explore other industries and communities when using your craft as it creates a challenge that forces you to adapt and gain new skills. These baby products are also very useful and I’m sure that one of these days when I’m a parents, I’ll be using my own.

Video for Scrappys Bitters

I had the pleasure of working with Milli Agency to create a cool video with Jason Yu and Scrappy's Bitters.   I love working with other creative artists in different fields along with progressive brands that believe in the power of social content and video.  It was fun creating this piece with Jason since we had to make his apartment look like a mini-bar while still capturing his personality in his surroundings.  He's a talented mixologist that was very humble despite his big following on Instagram, which made the experience smooth and fun.  

I used the Panasonic GH5s, Beholder Gimbal, and a few lenses to create the video and feel that we were able to create something awesome for the amount of time we had.  Hope you enjoy this piece and please support my friends at Milli Agency, Jason Yu, and Scrappy's Bitters!
