I was cinematographer/camera operator/colorist for director Josephine Decker's First Day Out in the anthology film collective:unconscious. Rolling Stone called it "a Malick-esque portrait," Austin Chronicle acclaimed the "Lubezki-level single-shot photography," New Yorker cited the "ecstatically onrushing continuous takes," and Slant Magazine praised my "intricate and exhilarating tracking shots" with "explosively colorful cinematography."
collective:unconscious opened at the South by Southwest Film Festival, and played at BAMcinemaFest and numerous other film festivals before receiving its online premiere, distributed for free, at BitTorrent and several other streaming platforms.
I shot the entire film hand-held using one Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, two lenses, and a portable gimbal. I color graded it emulating Kodak Vision3 5207 film stock and 16mm grain inside of Adobe Premiere.
