This is what really started my passion into HD DSLR filmmaking, because it showed me what could be done with these cameras. After I attended one of his workshops I saw alot of his other work, including his "People" series, including the "Venices People" piece, as well as one of my favorites, hi
I remember the first time I ever saw a show on the Food Network. It was 2000 and I had just moved to Atlanta GA with my girlfriend. We used to sit around eating Chinese food and watching tv on our huge CRT tv back before their was high def or hdtvs, or at least not for a poor guy just out of college.
