The ubiquitous director’s reel is many things. It’s a filmmaker’s portfolio. It can be a calling card to reach new clients, and a reminder for existing ones. More than anything, it’s a visual letter—from me to all of my friends and colleagues. A chance to reflect on all the blood, sweat, and tears that went into capturing each and every second of video, and all the incredible stories that we lived behind the scenes.
Much of the footage in this reel was captured in 2016. Watching it now is a wonderful reminder of all the places and faces that have made the past year one of the biggest and best yet. More than anything, it’s a testament to the fact that I’ve gotten to work with some of the most talented, inspiring people I know, on some of the most creative, fulfilling projects that any of us could’ve imagined. The fact that I get to call my production team—as well as the clients who we work for—true friends is both humbling and an honor.
Huge thanks to the team at Corey Rich Productions and the team at Novus Select. Special thanks to Rex Lint for staying awake for four straight days to cut this reel together, and to Two Feet for the music.
Here’s to a whole lot more of this in 2017!
