Operation Smile: Morocco

Just got back from an amazing shoot in El Jadida, Morocco, shooting a short virtual reality documentary on Operation Smile’s visit to the city to provide free surgery for cleft lip and palate patients. Filmed in 360 stereoscopic format with a 14-camera array.

Adventures of Jamel Episode 3 - Buzzfeed Premiere

Just finished directing and co-editing the third episode of Jayson Musson’s series The Adventures of Jamel: The Time Traveling B-Boy! This episode, “The Ocean Blue” is set in the Bronx in 1990 and in 15th century Spain. We shot in Philadelphia as always, in a South Philly apartment and at a 18th century bomb shelter at Fort Mifflin, which served as both the throne room and the dungeon thanks to the magical skills of our production designer Lenore Romas and cinematographer Zac Rubino. Enjoy!!
