Road To AirVenture was the first feature documentary that I shot out of college. Weeks after graduating, I was approached by a friend who I’d done an editing internship with years before, and he asked me to shoot this film for him. I immediately said yes and flew out to Wisconsin two weeks later to begin production. This film was shot mostly on a Panasonic GH4 and about 6 GoPros. I shot this entire piece by myself in only 18 days and then spent the next 6 months editing it and collaborating with composer Connor Griffin on the original score. The film was distributed on Amazon Instant Video and it was a complete success, receiving all 5-star reviews with hundreds of downloads. The film is now available for free on youtube, where it has garnered 8,000 more views and counting. This project was an incredible opportunity and I’ve since spent many months working with this same company on other short form action sports videos. I feel that as an artist, it is important to fully immerses oneself in one’s craft. This project was no exception for me. Directly after completing production on the film, I learned to fly paramotors myself and I developed a huge passion for it. Below are some photos of me flying!
