Blood Brother Cinematography Nomination Cameraimage Fest 2013

BB_Blog_resizeI’m excited to announce that Blood Brother has been nominated for a cinematography award at Cameraimage Fest in Poland! I’ll be heading to Gdansk next week to represent the film.

Huge thank you to Max Rivera ( Rocky’s Bratt’s brother ) and his crew for putting together a screening of Blood Brother in North Canton, OH. It was an opportunity to not only share with friends and family but to also meet new people. Thank you kindly for your continued support!

For those of you who don’t know, Blood Brother received the highest honors this year at Sundance by taking home both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award in the US Documentary Category. There are no words to describe how humbled I am to be a part of a story that has moved many hearts and minds across the world.

Much more to come.


End of An Era. Exciting Beginning Of Another.

Hello friends & colleagues,

Last job together as fellow StoneKap-ians. Derek Lee Urey and I, Acadia National Park, ME

The “Thank You Screening” of Blood Brother for friends & family was an overwhelming, incredibly humbling success. It’s only the beginning for the film’s potential to make a sustainable, thought-provoking impact on audiences around the world. Off to the film festivals…

“Thank You” Screening – Sept. 20th, 2012

Along with the screening came the release of Rocky’s book “I Was Always Beautiful”. It contains Rocky’s stunning photography of his journey over the past few years as well his journal entries that are brutally honest and heart-wrenchingly real. It is currently available at Animal Media Group.

There’s a new trailer that has been cut as well. Check it out. Don’t forget to hit up the official IMDB page to see the new movie poster / illustration by Court Miller. ¬†Looks fantastic!

The Saxman of Cleveland is still moving along. We reached our kickstarter goal thanks to all of the wonderful supporters of the film. The crew recently shot a pick up day of interviews and b-roll last week and will be tackling the remaining principle photography throughout the rest of the year.  Stayed tuned for more updates

Lastly, I’m excited to share some recent brand films that I shot with the one and only Kevin DeOliveira as Director of both projects. ¬†One was for an independent clothing company out of Braddock, PA called Dead Bury Dead. Love the company and the people behind it. ¬†Both the 60 sec & 2 min version are close to heading into the color suite so stay tuned.

There are a few other rad things on the horizon that I will share as soon as the time is right.

Exciting times folks. Thanks for your attention.
