Southern Tale World Premiere at Austin Film Fest

In November of 2014, I interned with the art department of Southern Tale. Through sub-freezing nights on set and drives back and forth from small towns across Oklahoma and campus to (barely) make it to class, I loved every second. It was the catalyst for all the work I've done in TV and film today.

Writer, director, and lead actor, Tel Royal had me out to shoot a blend of digital and film photos for the world premiere of Southern Tale at the 2017 Austin Film Festival. It was my first film festival and my first hybrid digital and film shoot, and so much fun.

Here are some of the photos from the weekend! Click the icons to see them big.

Dog Day Sessions 1 | The Rot In Our Bones

Five random musicians. One studio engineer. One cover artist. One vinyl cutter. One photographer/videographer.

Four songs.

Twenty four hours.

From start to shiny, scratch-free vinyl finish.

That's the idea behind the Dog Day Sessions. Each one is a different collective of artists and a different blend of sounds. I lucked out and got asked to shoot (both stills and video - yup, I make pictures that move, too!) the first official Dog Day Session. So, I loaded up my gear, drove to Austin, and did my best to stay awake the entire 24 hours.

Here is the recap video and my favorite shots. To hear the entire album, click here.
