Video Production

Read a Case Study From scripting to shooting to post-production, I do it all. Gypsy Creative filmmaking is a little bit of journalism, a good amount of artistry, and a lot of field experience. What I do ranges from studio interviews to on-location, run-and-gun shooting. Followed by broadcast-quality editing, color, and original music.

I have filmed all over the world; from aerial to underwater, from stuffy studios to conflict and post-conflict transitional regions. I shoot for fun whenever I can, and I’m always eager to test out new gear!

fcpxThese days I shoot with a Canon HDSLR rig, as most of the time I prefer go for that ‘film’ look. I also shoot on professional Canon camcorders for jobs on short notice or in dangerous areas, where I need basic run-and-gun features like zoom and autofocus. I never travel without my GoPro HD, and when the moment calls for it, I won’t shy away from using my trusty iPhone. Everything is then edited in Final Cut Pro X or Adobe Premiere; and graded with FCP, Magic Bullet Looks and DaVinci Resolve**
