I did a photoshoot last week with SF Chronicle Photographer Craig Lee at the Crucible in West Oakland. I had to figure out how to hold a wine glass full of flaming liquid while breathing fire over it, without burning myself or destroying the wine glass! Well I never got hurt, but we shattered two glasses! However we managed to get some good shots in before the fireworks.

Thanks to Joshua David for being my fire-safety on this gig.

Engine 42 Crucible Video

I just finished my first contract video project for the Crucible!

I’m pretty happy with it… but had a lot of problems with the audio, and there is some redundancy. But Learned a lot in the process…. and like I always say;

If I had more time I’d make a shorter video!
