Winter Solstice traditionally marks a change of seasons and was a way for people to identify the actual time for harvests and sowing of new crops. We are grateful for this season’s harvest and excited about what this new season will bring. #vscocam #blenderapp #ndpatterns #piclab #winter

Remember that time I was filming in Haiti and walked into a “ditch”? No? Me neither. @louiegiglio #TBT #2010 #setlife #productionlife #haiti #wet #watchoutforthatfirststepitsadoozy #sonyex3

I LOVE @uber . When traveling to big cities I have the choice of taking a taxi or an @uber black car and I almost always choose the latter. @uber is a black car service that allows you to request a black car or an SUV from the convience of your iphone. I am paying the bill at dinner in NYC, I request an uber car and I walk outside and the car is there…it is that easy. They are always clean vehicles with friendly, well dressed, proffesional drivers that you can trust. No money is exchanged because it is an app based payment system. @uber is one of those companies that I would get behind any day of the week. I wish I could tell you how many different ways @uber has made the way I do business better. I am so thankful for them.

I’ve owned many backpacks to haul my laptop and camera gear, but none as thoughtful as my Delta Rucksack by @langly . Modeled after a WWII rucksack, the @langly bag holds my laptop, camera body and a few lenses as well as generous compartments for accessories. It does all of this without sacrificing style. I love my @langly bag and am so thankful for how it serves me. It’s the piece of gear that is the closest to me and for the most amount if time.

Quite possibly one of the wisest investments in my lifetime is this #Cosco 3-in-1 hand cart. I couldn’t be any more thankful for this cart than on my most recent trip where it allowed me to travel alone with this much gear. Thank you #Cosco for one if the most valuable pieces of gear we own and I never leave for a job without it.

I’m so thankful for the Veterans that have dedicated their lives to protecting the country we live, work and play. I can’t imagine not having the freedoms to do what I do without what our Veterans have already done.

Over the last year so, I’ve developed an amazing partnership with my friends over at @aperturent. They bend over backwards to deliver an amazing product with amazing customer service. I rent from them more often than not, from tilt-shift lenses to the RED camera. In an industry that’s technologically ever-changing, owning every camera for every scenario isn’t that realistic, but @aperturent fills the gap and is a great source of relevant gear when you need it the most. Thank you @aperturent for being an amazing local business that pours in the film/video and photography culture. #retro8givesthanks

Ten years ago, I took a leap of faith and went to a little-known film school called Full Sail. It was there that the foundation for what I am today was built and where I learned that telling great stories was the key to great filmmaking. I am thankful for my education and how it has shaped and prepared me to do what I do today. #retro8givesthanks #setlife #productionlife #35mmfilm #filmschool #thankful @fullsailuniversity Check back all month for more people, places and things that we are thankful for.

I have the privilege of filming all over the world, and I love having the confidence that my gear will make it because it’s protected by the almost 20 Pelican Cases I own. Thank you @pelicanproducts for making what I do so much more possible with your amazing cases. #retro8givesthanks #setlife #productionlife #pelicancase #gear #thankful Check back all month for more people, places and things that we are thankful for.

It seems more often than not that I see companies being bashed and publicly humiliated on social media. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wanted to take the month of November to publicly return thanks to all of the people, places and things that make it possible for Retro 8 Films to do what we do.

It wasn’t until I saw the bathroom sign that it hit me that I was in @nintendo headquarters in Seattle. I got really excited. #nintendo #seattle #tecmobowl #setlife #productionlife #mariobros

Remember that time I fell off the top of a 12’ ladder and was caught by the security camera? No? It’s because it’s been hidden in the Retro 8 Films archives. I give it to you in honor of the first day of Fall. #ladder #fall #productionlife #autumn #bruisedribs #hair #frathair #bbcc #cablepull
