Here is a video I shot earlier this year that was for The 54th Annual CIIS Commencement Ceremony of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS).
For this video, I was lucky enough to take the lead on the majority of the pieces, including professor and student speeches, an original music video for the band AstraLogik, and a short choir piece as well. Hope you enjoy the ceremony & congrats to all the graduates!
I’ve sought out shooting shows, musicals, and dance pieces much more in recent years; from BTS work to live stills. Coming from this world myself makes me have a natural affinity for these spaces and the special energy they hold…also working with great performers like these ones makes the experience of shooting photos even more collaborative and playful.
