This weekend I had the chance to act as the director of photography for Robert James Haynes’s hilarious and absurd short film, ‘The Encouragement Clown’. Here’s the synopsis:

“After fellow coworkers ignore his ‘amazing’ presentation, Barry calls upon the help of his encouragement clown, Professor Giggles, to further prove his point.”

We had a fantastic one day shoot with a great cast and crew. You can check out some behind the scenes photos at the bottom of the page, but first here are some shots straight from the camera:

The short film is currently in the editing bay, but I’ll update when it goes online.
