As Cinematographer, Derek partnered with the Disney Channel and director Sam Macaroni to create several interstitial short films such as this one “Sneaky Santa” that premiered during the Holiday Season and below was a limited series of shorts for Disney promoting the film Big Hero 6.
Derek worked with Canon as DP for the product launch of their new Vixia mini-X camera. The challenge was to make a compelling action movie on a fixed wide angle lens camera.
For the past several years, Derek has had many opportunities to work with world famous comedian and actor Steve-O, such as this spot that was originally supposed to be for an Anti-Tobacco organization that shall not be mentioned here. Luckily, with a quick re-shoot of the outtro, Steve-O was able to use the footage for his Youtube Channel.
