Currently you film with a couple of different cameras, the Blackmagic Ursa Mini, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, the Canon 7d. Which camera is your favorite to work with and why?
Nowadays my favorite camera is the Blackmagic Ursa mini 4.6k. This camera is great in terms of price and quality. The picture quality is beautiful, it has great RAW color grading capabilities, and it is able to shoot 60 frames per second at a resolution of 4.6k
What gear will you never leave home without?
I never leave for set with out my camera, a slider or gimbal, and my favorite set of lenses, my Sigma 18-35/1.8, my Zeiss ZF.2 50/1.4, and my Pentax 80-320/4-5.6
What do you hope to achieve with the films you create?
My goal is to always create films about real life that allow an audience to think about something deeper rather than simply being entertained.
Are there any films or filmmakers that have inspired your work over the years?
If we talk about directors, I have a huge list. Zhang Yimou, his work is gorgeous. Frank Darabont, but not a single Oscar, seriously? Stanley Kubrick , no comment needed here. And Ingmar Bergman, his movies are absolutely timeless. When it comes to individual films, "Fountain" by Darren Aronofsky, "Contact" by Robert Zemeckis, and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" by Michel Gondry will always be at the top of my list.
