Cameras

By Jared Abrams Videomaker.com caught me when we were uploading a few interviews for C5D in the press room at NAB 2010.

The best part is that they were using a Canon 5D Mark II with the 24-105mm kit lens! I wanted to finally thank them...Read More

Quick Takes

By: Jared Abrams I got a call to shoot a music video from Director Darcy Fray. It was for a song called “Goodbye L.A.” by Reagan Browne. There was not a ton of money, but enough to get a proper crew and cool location. I am always game for that kind of shoot.
