I was fortunate enough to be the Director of Photography on this short movie Directed by Darcy Fray. I was approached by Darcy with the script for Someday Hero. The story hit vey close to home for me personally. I was hooked instantly. The entire camera budget was very small and I had to pull a few favors to make it all work. It was well worth it. We were able to complete principal photography within a week and only had one or two days of pick ups. Darcy was able to get a SAG low budget contract so we were privileged with professional actors. I had tons of help from Birns and Sawyer, Carl Zeiss Lenses, Marshall Electronics and Bron Kobold Lighting. I also want to give a shout out to my main man Chris Collins who shot B camera. This was a collaboration of many talented people. In many ways this film embodies the essence of Independant Filmmaking. I am so lucky to be a part of this truly fantastic project. Here is the IMDB link for the entire Cast and Crew of Someday Hero. Thanks for checking it out!

Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood, California. After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography. About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

    Opening shot of child is typically done with subject looking in to the lens (as his reflection) kinda threw me off there a moment. Good flow, good story and great shots Jared.
