After graduating college with a focus in screenwriting, Jesse moved to Japan and co-founded Ice Block, a freelance collective, with his childhood friend William Greenawalt. As the Head of Production at Ice Block, he has produced and directed hundreds of short films, corporate videos, commercials and short poppers. After 9 years of making movies in Japan, he started Sunshine Pictures LLC, an American company with a focus on "ethically sourced, small batch artisanal features". The first film completed under this banner was The Last Library, an focused adventure set 100 years after The Shattered Atom. The second project is a documentary about the custom motorcycle scene in Japan. We're putting the finishing touches on that dish now and will have it on the table as soon as it's cooked through.

4x ColorSpike by Bitbanger labs w/ barn doors and mounting kit

MEET COLORSPIKE Colorspike is an animation-driven photo/video light that feels right at home in any shooter’s kit. Colorspike combines fully programmable color light and high CRI white light with our powerful animation engine to completely redefine what's possible on set, in studio, or on the go. PRO HARDWARE Colorspike's rugged aluminum body protects the internals while dissipating heat silently without a fan. The bar form factor is perfect for going handheld and the dual side channels make easy mounting. The ultra-bright, flicker-free RGB LEDs are capable of displaying millions of colors and are accompanied by high CRI white LEDs for clean full-spectrum light. Colorspike runs from the included wall adapter or the internal rechargeable battery. MADE FOR VIDEO Colorspike is a video shooter's secret weapon. Use the app to create bespoke visual effects that help realize your vision and drive narrative. Whether you need to simply try a variety of different color washes on a scene, dial in some deliberate off-camera effects, or even use it as a practical lighting source, Colorspike is up to the task. MADE FOR STILLS At last, High CRI white light meets programmable color. As a still shooter, Colorspike simplifies your workflow, helping you get more looks in less time and freeing you to focus on the creative process. Whether you need clean, full spectrum white light or 16-bit color, colorspike helps you get a variety of looks in no time flat. APP CONTROLLED While colorspike is designed to be functional without pairing to a mobile device, our feature-packed companion app is the key to unlocking all of colorspike's functionality. From managing your collection of patterns, to tweaking and creating new ones, to controlling multiple units simultaneously, the app takes colorspike to a whole new level.

DJI Ronin-M with hardcase, 2 batteries and thumb controller

Save time and start shooting professionally stabilized video in under 5 minutes. Mount your camera to the Ronin-M, quickly balance it, and then tap a button. The upgraded ATS (Auto Tune Stability) technology is more precise than before and completes the tuning and balancing processes with no tools necessary. Easy and efficient. Capture tight shots, even when you have almost no space to work, and easily transport your Ronin-M. The top handle bars quickly and easily twist off, allowing you to minimize its size, achieve different shooting configurations, and pack or unpack it in seconds. Your Ronin-M stands up to rugged use in any filming environment. Featuring a superbly strong and rigid magnesium frame, the Ronin-M brings increased stiffness and reduced weight. Notoriously difficult to manufacture and mold, magnesium brings you a new, more exact shooting experience while maintaining easy maneuverability and increasing options on set. Even with only one operator, SmoothTrack technology ensures the Ronin-M translates your movements into smooth camera angle changes. Your camera intuitively faces the direction you want, all while completely stabilized, no matter how you move. SmoothTrack settings from speed to deadband to acceleration are fully customizable, and ‘Single Axis Follow Mode’ enables you to lock two axes while SmoothTrack guides your camera along only one axis of motion. Film all day and capture every shot thanks to the Ronin-M’s smart, replaceable battery. With its compact size and long battery life of 3 hours, you can easily bring an extra battery with you to last through a whole day of filming. Overcharge and over depletion protection is built in, as is individual cell charge balancing. Remaining power is shown by clear LEDs and in the Assistant mobile app. Designed with high performance in mind, the Ronin-M’s brushless motors are incredibly precise and powerful while maintaining low vibration and increasing torque. Industry-leading accuracy is increased even further with Digital Absolute Positioning Encoders in each axis, and a much larger range of controllable motion on both the tilt (105⁰ Up, 165⁰ Down) and roll (± 110⁰) axes. When shooting indoors or in tight spaces, a new Silent Mode reduces the sound of each motor to almost inaudible levels. The Ronin-M’s stabilization algorithms are instantly changed to focus on strength for minute changes and stabilization, ensuring the sound of the motors is not recorded by sensitive microphones or other recording equipment.

Ashanks 1.2m (3.9') Motorized Step Slider

This Carbon Fiber High Precision Camera Slider is using precision bearings with carbon fiber tubes as a rail, which is light weight, good rigidity, ultra-quiet. Using load-bearing high-grade aluminum alloy material and processing technology, the configuration of the 1/4”& 3/8” thread allows you to convert between different types of equipment. It can be used as slopping position, as horizontal position, be used on tripod stands. You can also easily adjust the height of the foot. This is a lower-end slider. It's perfect for playing around and experimenting but if you have a client leaning on you, I'd suggest something with a more rugged build.
