Too many to list, but Sci-Fi genre is always a major choice. Any Orson Welles, any Hitchcock, Gilliam, Gondry, Frankenheimer, Scorsese, Spielberg, the typical heavyweights, and I have a warm spot for the creative cheapskate, Roger Corman.

Technical Information

System Details

FCPX, Premiere Pro, Apple Motion.


I shoot in DVCPro on my day job. But I don’t fetishize the camera; it is only a tool. Nice to own, but I’m happy to rent one for a specific project, as long as it gets me the image I need to tell the story effectvely. That could be a Red Epic or a knockoff GoPro. Whatever the budget and the needs call for.
