Adrew Bradford – new cinematography reel

Bradford” as he’s known to those closest to him is one of the gutsiest, hardest-working dudes out there. His vision behind the camera is magical.

I’ve had the opportunity to work on a few films with him, and I was even lucky enough to have him on board to DP my latest short film “Prelude.”

He recently dropped a new cinematography reel. You should check it out. Also, you should hire him. You won’t regret it.

Baptized by Fire – a short film

A month or so ago, I had the pleasure of working on a new short with some buddies in SC. I posted the following to Instagram shortly after filming…

“Two days after filming the fight scene, I’m still finding new bruises . . . the price happily paid for another chance to work with amazing friends.
It’s about relationships–relationships built over years of hard work and trust. Years of (gasp) completed projects . . . not “someday” ideas but meticulously planned, executed, and completed films.
Bradford is on my list of directors who I’ll show up for no matter what. I’ll take physical risks for him that I wouldn’t necessarily take for others because I know his attention to detail. I don’t hope the risks will be worth it . . . I KNOW they will. Because he doesn’t just talk a big game—he actually shows up and delivers.”

Stay – short film

Almost a year ago, I sat in a Starbucks working on a short story. After posting it, TK McKamy, a director friend, suggested it should be turned into a short film. Fast-forward to this year, and the dream is finally complete. I have to say a huge thank you to some of my friends who stepped up to help me:

Justin Robinson (DP and editor), Andrew Bradford (1st AC), and Page Lynch (audio): these three ninjas work enough magic to put 10 guys to shame. I would put the fate of any film I do in their hands with complete confidence.

Leslie Hanson, Olan Rogers, and Rachel Vaughn: thanks for helping with the locations, they worked out beautifully.

Abbi Butler: for making sure we all had food and doing pretty much anything else I needed help with.

And last, but definitely not least, Annie Kearney: thank you for bringing this story to life; you were wonderful, my friend.
