As a #filmmaker, I admittedly have quite the #cinema #bucketlist! For starters, I've always wanted to do a detailed #steadicam shot. When given the opportunity to direct the #trailer for the 2015 VALENCIA FILM SCHOOL FILM CELEBRATION, I incorporated one...and it turned out AWESOME! Check out the end product! Thanks to the students that made it a success! #filmmaking #commercial #filmproduction
