Banana Season

“Banana Season”

Feature Film

Role: 1st Assistant Camera (Sony F55)

This project was my second feature but my first working in camera. I had met Corey Lillard (DP) on a previous project and was brought on board to formally be 1st Assistant Camera but also often served duties of operating camera, slating, and dolly grip.

I learned a lot on this project. My biggest takeaways were becoming way more savvy with very high-end gear and talking a lot with the Grip & Electrical Department breaking down how they lit each scene. I also felt like I further bolstered my camera operating skills, particularly with measuring for and pulling focus in tough shots.
