Production Update

As a creative professional and small business owner in the production industry, I always strive to innovate and stay up-to-date with industry trends.

I am excited to share with you the latest equipment and projects I have worked on in 2022 and 2023, both in New York and abroad.

Thanks to my multi-disciplined skill set, I have the ability to shoot a variety of genres, including documentary filming with BBC and high-profile multi-camera interview shoots for 60 Minutes Australia. I enjoy the challenge of shooting and lighting multi-camera interview set-ups or working in the field, capturing the story as it unfolds.

Recently, I have upgraded my multi-camera interview capabilities with Sony's latest line of cameras, the FX6 and FX3. I have also invested in latest lighting technology from Aputure and can now switch and preview up to four cameras on location via Zoom for remote interview set-ups.

I am passionate about every project I undertake and the technical tools I have invested in to meet my clients' production needs.

Sony Cinema Cameras

The Sony FX6 and FX3 cameras are my preferred tools for work due to their outstanding capabilities. Both cameras feature S-Cinetone cinematic color science, full-frame image sensors, and impressive dynamic range, making them a perfect fit for multi-camera productions, well-lit interiors, and outdoor documentary shooting.

Furthermore, the cameras' portability is one of their main advantages, enabling more creative and dynamic shots. This is precisely why I have chosen the Sony FX6 and FX3 cameras for my work.

Interview Lighting

I take pleasure in creating a moody and dramatic atmosphere when lighting interviews. Recently, I upgraded my lighting kit to offer the softest possible key light for interview shoots. It features a large light source that provides maximum softness, contrast, and control.

To achieve this, I use the Aputure LS 600d, which is an ideal lighting tool for interviews. When paired with the Light Dome, it provides an even wrap around the subject while reducing light spill.

Multi-Camera Viewing / Zoom

Due to the ongoing pandemic and the shift towards the hybrid work model, remote interviews have become more popular than ever before. As a result, many of my clients now request interviews to be conducted via Zoom.

To ensure a smooth and efficient remote interview process, I use the Atomos Ninja Cast. This device allows me to monitor and switch up to four cameras directly into my laptop via USB-C, providing clients with real-time framing approval. Additionally, the Atomos Ninja Cast enhances the interview experience by offering a more dynamic and engaging setup.

Documentary Filming

In 2022, I had the opportunity to film a documentary titled "Grenada, Confronting The Past" in Grenada, in collaboration with the BBC.

To bring this project to life, I selected the Sony FX6 cinema camera and the Easyrig Minimax STABIL light gimbal/camera support system.

The FX6 proved to be the ideal camera for capturing this documentary due to its compact and lightweight design, which enabled me to be highly mobile and creative in a fast-paced environment where I needed to keep up with the action while keeping gear size to a minimum.


I own and work with the latest Sony cinema line of cameras, the Fx9, and Fx6.
