I did steadicam and shot 2nd unit on this Enrique job in October, right before I started Graceland.  Enrique seems to constantly try and out sex his previous video.  He did a pretty good job with this one.  We were actually humming 'take my breath away' from Top Gun when we cut because the scene had so much in common with the scene in the movie.

I started Graceland at the end of October and have been working there 5 days a week since.  It's a fantastic show.  Great cast, great crew, great production team.  I'm doing 'B' camera and steadicam and shooting the occasional second or underwater unit.  Really cool photography, super long lenses and lots of movement and foreground.  It's 7 day television with big scripts but despite that and a very high concept look, we still manage to work around 12 hours a day.  My hat goes off to the first assistants (Mike and Peter) as they have one of the hardest jobs on the show.  Some really amazing work. 

The pilot airs in June 2013.  The network is already planning to shoot 5 seasons and from what I've seen, the show has a good chance of success.

2012 was a great year for work and family.  2013 is already looking great!
