I'm a DP/Director/Editor based in SF and have been working in production for 10 years. I've recently been building a perfect kit for run-and-gun work, corporate video, doc films, music videos, and short films. This collection of equipment works great for a one-man-band or can easily plug into a larger production. The Ursa Mini Pro listed has been battle tested with clients ranging from Google, Adobe, Clorox, Aeropostale, and lots of passion projects! Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Below is a recent project that was filmed in one morning with this kit.

Jayson Carpenter
9 (100%)
JaysonCarpenter.com Jayson is an award winning, commercial photographer and director. Jayson's work has been featured in international publications and media around the word, most notably displayed in the Smithsonian in DC. Some of Jayson's cinematography credits include feature Documentary Age of Champions. Age of Champions is the award-winning PBS documentary following five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. You’ll meet a 100-year-old tennis champion, 86-year-old pole vaulter, and rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers as they triumph over the limitations of age. The Washington Post called the film "infectiously inspiring" and theater audiences across the country have fallen in love with its light-hearted take on growing older. With two decades of experience working with commercial clients, Jayson's work has a clear passion working with people. Whether it be post Tsunami Japan working with peace boat, India, shooting for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Jayson has always had a passion for giving back. When not working you may find Jayson casually stopping bank robbers (true story), diving with great whites (also true) or conducting crazy photo/video experiments (why lie now). He also makes a mean curry. JaysonCarpenter.com PullFocusFilms.net

I am a DP and AC born and raised in the Bay Area and love to spend too much money on equipment, but let's be honest who doesn't. Graduated from San Francisco State University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Fictional Filmmaking (although I've come to enjoy shooting documentaries more). I began shooting seriously in 2011 and have had the opportunity of being on countless commercials and short doc ranging from Google to Honda. I've also become a proficient editor in Adobe Premiere through putting creating most of my early work as a one-man-band. Feel free to reach out to me with an inquiries about equipment or work!
