City Gates

Every once in awhile, you come across an organization that you just click with. The City Gates Initiative is just that. And so, I can’t tell you how stoked I was to film this piece, let alone the tons more we have coming in the hopper.

City Gates is an amazing thrust, and you can get the full skivvy here:

Watch the first piece in the series here:


eric + chris

I’ve known Eric and Chris for a long time, and was thrilled to fly out to Salt Lake from Ohio a few weeks back and videograph their wedding. Above you’ll find a little teaser from the day. They’re writing a great story with their lives, and it’s exciting to see them step into this new phase together. Congratulations!


Cyndi + Aaron

When I first met with Cyndi and Aaron in Salt Lake City, we met up at a favorite bar of theirs (and mine, coincidentally), The Bayou, near SLC’s downtown. They drank gluten-free beer, as they’re both converts to the gluten-free lifestyle. I have no idea what I drank, but it was delicious.

Cyndi & Aaron have a great story, and as you would hope for two people getting ready to tie the knot, they were full of life and love. They shared their engagement story from the Oregon coast with me, and you could really get a sense that these two were simply enveloped in the moment with each other, which is great.

They were incredible gracious with me; a work conflict pulled me away from the shoot at the last minute unfortunately, and I was not able to actually shoot the event. My friends over at PaperRock Pictures were glad to step in and do the shoot for me. Finally, here’s the edit. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Harris, and many happy years to you both!

Remember, if you’re looking for wedding videography in Ohio or the midwest, I’m happy to take care of your needs. I’ll work with you to craft a wedding video that tells your story and feels like you’re watching a film of your day.

These are the guys behind some AMAZING work for Honda, Coke, and of course the beautiful work they did for ESPNU and all the awesome new bumpers you see there.

Oh boy, so much inspiration and so little time to articulate my brain ocean.


Father to the Fatherless

Love this story. Love my church. Love that my job is to tell stories like this.

This is a story that we used in yesterday’s services at K2. Enjoy.

luv•o•lu•tion wrap up

Below is the video we used to wrap up the Christmas luv•o•lu•tion giving campaign that K2 ran this year. Video aired in all of our Christmas Eve services. Great news? Dave got follow up the video and announce that in 6 weeks, by Christmas weekend, K2 had raised over $43,000 for the luv•o•lu•tion! Amazing stuff!

I really enjoyed the process on making the video, though sadly, it was more than likely the final edit I’ll do on my portable editing drive. It met it’s maker finally, and was the cause of an all-night editing session as the drive slowly died.

Some geeky details:
Edit: FCP
Color: Magic Bullet Looks
Post: Adobe After Effects

I also heavily used plugins from Luca & Video Copilot, used alot of film burn overlays, and took inspiration stylistically from videos done by Northpoint Community Church as well as Kingdom Project Creative.
