WHERE’S MY STUFF?
See my work on the "WebVideo," "Legal," "Events," and "Broadcast" pages of this website >> click the page links under the "Backpack Cinema" banner above.
The Home page of this website is my blog showcasing great examples of other people's short format digital storytelling, using gear you can fit in a backpack: laptop computers and prosumer & DSLR cameras like the Canon T2i, Canon 7D, and Canon 5D Mark II. I expect that list to grow quickly in the next few years.
