As a Chicago music video director, I am always striving to hone my craft by using news tools and techniques. My latest music video for Marcus Matteo was my first 4k project and I shot it almost exclusively in 4k DCI with a Canon 1D X Mark II camera.
Caleb Minter asked me to create a black & white music video for his single ‘Gone Too Soon,’ which is dedicated to his older brother Clarence Minter Jr. who was killed by gun violence.
The mood of the song ruled the day when it came to coming up with the art direction for this video. Long cuts, smooth movement and soft yet dramatic lighting was used to bring out the emotion’s of Marcus Matteo’s voice and the precision picking of guitarist Daniel Peters.

Instructional Video Production sounds like a boring topic, but this project was far from mundane. We used a variety of tools and techniques during this Chicago shoot to showcase Avlon’s new Texture Release System. We layered fashion driven clips showing the final results over step-by-step instruction as the video showed professional hair stylists how to use the salon product.
