Day 5 of the pilot Season & Renee. Our star actor for the day was a tortoise - and she was beautiful! Caught her on her lunch break. . . . #losangeles #hollywood #california #directorofphotography #cinematographer #cinematography #cinema #setlife #film #filmset #redepic #redepicw #redhelium #epic #epicw #tv #tvpilot #seasonandrenee #turtle #tortoise #animal #tortoisesofinstagram
I upgraded my light meter to the new Sekonic 858 and it's wonderful. Easy to use and highly customizable. I had the 478 but I wanted a spot meter. Even though false color making lighting really easy to see value, you can never go wrong with a light meter! . . . #lightmeter #sekonic #sekoniclightmeter #sekonic858d #setlife #film #photo #cinema #cinematography #cinematographer #directorofphotography #lighting #filmmaker #filmmaking #camera #losangeles #cameraporn #light

Day 4 of the pilot Season & Renee. Night shoot with a minimal G&E package. We had 4 LED light panels. With a little bit of finessing, it turned out quite nice! 2 Litepanel Astra's with a doubled up shower curtain as a back light. A Litepanel Lyko bouncing into a 4x4 breadboard as a key, and the last Lyko bouncing into a 3x2 as a fill hollywooded by @mrhausey. Light grade in DaVinci. Our lighting setup is in the next picture. . . #setlife #losangeles #hollywood #california #film #filmset #red #redepic #redepicw #r3d #redhelium #epicw #filmmaker #filmmaking #cinema #cinematography #cinematographer #night #nightshoot #seasonandrenee #moon #moonlit
Day 3 of Season & Renee pilot - shooting in an amazing vintage camera store. This place was amazing! Key light was a 800 joker in an ultrabouce, and had a Litepanel S2 as a back/side kicker. . . . #losangeles #hollywood #california #directorofphotography #cinematographer #cinematography #cinema #setlife #film #filmset #redepic #redepicw #redhelium #epic #epicw #hmi #grip #tv #tvpilot #seasonandrenee #camerastore #vintage #vintagecamera

When you're able to snag a selfie with Jason Voorhees when he's looking over your shoulder at playback.

I've worked at just about every studio in LA except YouTube Space. Today I did a tech scout with @philf0rce of their stages for upcoming work. I was quite impressed. . . . #selfie #losangeles #youtube #youtubespace #youtubespacela #film #soundstage #filmstage #filmset #hollywood #california
Shooting a Ford Focus RS with @babymodel89 & @drewl805. Not necessarily the safest means but for a quick shot it worked and looked amazing! I love my Focus ST, but the RS is on a whole new level. . . . #ford #focusrs #focusst #turbo #hatchback #fordfocus #r3d #redepic #redepicw #redhelium #8k #6k #4k #film #cinema #racing #speed
Back on the set of Never Hike Alone, and it's time to take a break! Busted out the hammock (thanks @gregdiven & @jdiven88 ) and a book. Time to chill out. . . . #neverhikealone #nha #filmset #film #setlife #nature #adventure #book #hammock #cinema #jason #fridaythe13th #jasonlives #campcrystallake #camp #camping #reading
According to my FitBit, hiked over 18 miles and just over 40,000 steps. Climbed 276 stories, and burned over 6,000 calories - what a day. Thank you Brent for inviting me on your Bachelor Party. It was a hell of a time!! You can kind of make a makeshift waterfall popped up on our trail - it was amazing to hike under it!! . . . #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #usa #america #halfdome #elcapitan #waterfalls #waterfall #forest # hike #climbing #outdoors #adventure #adventuretime #nature #bachelorparty #bachelorweekend
Not much of a fan for selfies but this is pretty epic. On the top of Nevada Falls in Yosemite with a little rainbow poking out. . . . #yosemite #california #nevadafalls #waterfall #rainbows #rainbow #outdoors #adventure #outside #adventuretime #nature #nps #nationalpark #america #american #mandalorian #hiking #hiker #yosemitenationalpark #selfie #selfiesunday #goprohero5 #gopro
I've been to Yosemite a lot, and I've never seen this much water here before. It's absolutely incredible. . . . #yosemite #california #waterfall #rapids #water #nature #adventure #outdoors #outside #nationalpark #nps #america #american
Brought my Epic-W to NAB to test the new @sigmaphoto art cine primes - woah. Every minimal chromatic aberration, super clean and great flare! I have some 8K files on Dropbox.

This is the aftermath from @eltoncastee when he makes a 6ft hand, gets a forklift, a ball pit, and 100 cans of shaving cream. Had fun shooting with him! . . . #eltoncastee #filmset #prank #pranks #slapcam #forklift #wtf #ballpit #funny
