    A Lens Is A Lens Is A Lens

    This is a great video explaining and demoing the differences between lenses and camera sensor sizes. If you are a filmmaker or video professional, you should watch this. There is some very useful and interesting information. Thanks to @negativefill for the link.

    Dead Wait Series 1 Trailer

    Dead Wait is a webseries that I’m working on currently as Director of Photography (and Cameraman due to budget) as well as Editor. This project has been extraordinarily fun due to the fact it is right up my alley.

    I am a rather big fan of webseries and using the web to distribute content. I am relatively proud of the work I’ve done thus far on Dead Wait and can’t wait for this to explode and start working on Series 2. I would greatly appreciate any feedback you have on this trailer or the one below it. Thank you and enjoy.



    DEAD WAIT is a new webseries from Happy Underground Productions, chronicling the adventures of Adam Aldrid as he struggles through the end of the world - which you’d think wouldn’t be that bad since he’s been preparing for it for a while now. Only trouble is, Adam prepared for the wrong apocalypse.

    Dead Wait Teaser Trailer

    This is a current, ongoing project that I am still having a lot of fun doing. During the month of February, I worked as Director of Photography and Principle Cameraman during this shoot. Then, after wrapped photography, I switched gears and quickly became the primary editor on this project. What follows is current teaser trailer available for this soon-to-be-released series.

    12th Street

    12th Street from Anthony Thompson on Vimeo.

    NOTE: Give the video 10 seconds. We had to put ten seconds of black as a bumper at the beginning.

    The same crew that will be bringing you “0:22:43” also gives you “12th Street.”

    This short was created in 10 hours as an entry into the Independent Filmmaker’s Coalition of Kansas City’s One Night Stand Competition.

    The One Night Stand gives filmmaking teams 10 hours to write, shoot, edit, and deliver a no more than 5 minute short film. The 2009 ONS competition required teams to include:

    Prop: a piece of paper
    Line of dialog: “It’s alive, It’s alive”
    Theme: unrequited love.

    This short tied for the Captain’s Choice Award after screening in the competition. We are all very proud of the work we did and hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it.

    This is uploaded exactly as it was turned in, so there are a few changes to the credits that I failed to insert due to time restraints, so I apologize:

    The short was written by Jerry White, Anthony Thompson, and Allie Terveer.

    DP stands for Director of Photography, in case you didn’t know. I didn’t have time to make the long title and my long name look good, so I just substituted DP.

    Allie Terveer was also an indispensable member of the editing team.

    Thom Proctor composed the music within the 10 hour time limit, so give him a round of applause for that.

    Please, leave your comments and questions below and we shall address and answer them.
