I directed a fun little zombie-comedy short film called “The End of the World Party.” Starring Nick Sommer and WC Tank on a blustery Halloween day at Grant Park in South Milwaukee.
Doing ADR with actor/co-writer/costumer Nick Sommer on a beautiful fall day (recording zombie voices and re-recording a couple of Nick’s lines — 15-30mph of wind on the day we shot).
A short video and photos of the beautiful sunrise overlooking Lake Michigan before the shoot.
Grant Park is an incredibly gorgeous park that I don’t visit enough. A visit there in late August got me thinking about shooting a film there.
Especially this photo:
Some more photos from that August trip:
I took some photos during a Milwaukee Spring evening out. Locations include La Perla (Mexican Restaurant), Lake Shore Park, and Downtown.
I just brought out a light/small/inexpensive lens, “the nifty fifty,” Canon’s EF 50mm f/1.8 lens on my Canon 5Dmk3. Photos were processed in Lightroom and about a third also had some work done in Photoshop as well. To see all 17 photos in the gallery click here.
Milwaukee Spring Night Photos AT LA PERLA FOR DINNER AND DRINKS:
Genius direction, “Um, look at the fire.” On La Perla’s patio.
🙂 Also on the patio.
Awww, I think they like each other. On the other side of the room, a guy was humping a girl on the motorized kid ride.
AT LAKE SHORE STATE PARK after dinner:
I had some sweet red-light timing on this.
Milwaukee Art Museum seen through the Lake Shore bridge. This is genius because they both have pokey things.
The girls consider jumping off the Lake Shore Bridge.
I also call this picture “Art Sauce,” but the lighting was at least done in camera. Makes me feel a little better.
A relaxing night.
Lake Shore… Marina? Whatever you call that protected water area.
Also, genius compositing by me.
These sissy ducks were totally scared of me and my evil camera.
If you could turn the camera to your left a little, you would see some mischevious kids.
This is where I park my imaginary boat.
DOWNTOWN at golden-hour before going to dinner:
The museum and the plant are competing to see who can spread their wings better. It’s a close call.
People love to hate this sculpture. But see how much fun it is?
