Title: Miami Vice. The story behind this photo is simple. Gil Green hit me to run 2nd unit for Fat Joe’s video “So Excited”. I jump at the chance because of all of Gil’s jobs are fucking awesome. Then he tells me “I need you to shoot from a helicopter as it chases a helicopter as it chases a Van Dutch speed boat”. I’m like uuuuummmm ok cool! They throw me in the chopper as Gil and Tom Marvel (DP) hop in the boat to shoot performances. Midway through I was like man, I need this flick. So I snuck one in, then got back to shooting video on my Sony A6500. I shot this with the camera rigged to a 1980s Canon FD28mm (basically means that there was no autofocus / auto anything available). The picture happened so fast that it was a combo of luck and instinct. There was no need to crop the photo as it lined up perfectly by the rule of thirds guidelines (google that, not gonna explain it). Anyway that’s why I love working with Gil because cool shit always seems to happen around him.
