Many of you know me as the DP of the SNL Film Unit but I've also shot feature films, documentaries, commercials and TV shows — and I was even nominated for an Oscar in short-filmmaking. In fact, I just finished co-directing Documentary Now!, a new IFC comedy series from creators Seth Meyers, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen. But before I was ever a Director or a DP, I was a camera assistant, where I had a chance to learn from legendary ASC cinematographers like Conrad Hall, Dean Cundey and John Schwartzman. They were so generous with their knowledge and inspired me to someday try to do the same — which is why I first offered my Visual Storytelling workshop back in 2013. It was a great experience for me to interact with so many talented filmmakers from all over the country, and over the past two years since my last workshop, I’ve realized that I have a lot more that I want to share. Thus, Visual Storytelling 2 emerged, with same vibe as the original tour but all new content, all new lessons and an overall focus on understanding how to create vastly different Visual Styles and how to harness the power of Visual Subtext.
