Brunch

Release Date: December 2020

Crew position: Director of Photography

Description of film/role: I worked as the director of photography on a student short film that was shot in October 2020. I met with the director to refine the script, work through the lines of dialogue, decide the order and importance of events, and create a very detailed shot list for each scene. I worked with the FS7 and had 3 changeable lenses (25mm, 50mm, and 85 mm). The movie is about an unexpected outcome of a family brunch when the daughter brings home her supposed boyfriend.

Crew position: Editor

Description of film/role: I was assigned to edit in Avid Media Composer a 10-minute short film directed by Arnulfo Garza. It portrays the struggles to decide what is the right thing to do, especially when civilians’ lives are involved. The process of editing consisted of creating several rough cuts and fine cuts until achieving the desired picture lock, and assisting the director with the post-production processes of color correction and sound mixing.
