39 - A Birthday Video

Short movie for my buddy Steve Hatherly as he celebrated his 39th birthday. I love these docu-verite films, just being a fly on the wall and documenting stuff going on. I always look for a story, some kind of beginning, middle and end. Or at the very least, capturing a mood or feeling. In this case, I just wanted Steve to have a nice memory of his friends having a good time on his birthday. The scene at the beginning was shot after we finished our live show on EBS Morning Special.

Everything was shot handheld with a vintage 50mm lens on my trusty Song NEX-5N and edited in Final Cut Pro X.
