Joe Simon  Cinematographer -- Traveler -- Adventurer // Personal and random pics here - @sometimeswetravel // Production company - www.the-delivery-men.com

Unused frame from the @thedeliverymen Under Armour project. It was such a beautiful sunrise but didn't fit the vibe of the commercial. ⠀

I've been doing some updates on my website and love looking back on all the fun projects I was lucky enough to be apart of. I'm extremely lucky to be able to do what I love for a living and I can't imagine doing anything else.⠀

I'm looking for new narrative projects this fall if any directors out there have scripts. Please send them my way!⠀

You can check it out my recent work from the link in my bio. ⠀

Last year I filmed a commercial at the Bonneville salt flats while it was flooded, it was an incredible experience! Here's a frame grab from a MOVI shot where I'm walking through the water doing a push-in. ⠀

White Sands National park is such an incredible location to film. Here's a shot from a few years back for a fashion film. ⠀

Frame grab from "The Study" a film by director @will_bakke Just recently saw the final cut of the film and it's awesome! Can't wait for the world to see this after it makes the festival circuit. ⠀

Scroll to to the right for a BTS shot. Shoutout to my killer camera and lighting team @derrick_edgar and @claytonstring *⠀

For this film we pre-lit both the living room and kitchen so that we could move quickly from scene to scene, this allowed us to only move our key light around to help push light in our medium and close up shots. In the living room we hung 5x 24" skirted china balls at 2800k, in the kitchen we rigged 2x @quasarscience bulbs at 5000k into the ceiling and also replaced all the practical bulbs w/ low wattage 2800k units.⠀
For our key light in this scene we are using a 6x quasar tube array at 2800k in a Kino housing w/ flozier cloth and also pushing through a @westcottlighting 4x6 of 1/2 grid cloth.⠀

Screen grab from the short film “The Long Goodbye”

Here’s a few frames from “The Long Goodbye” In the midnight hallway scene we used the iPhone’s flashlight as the key light for talent, in the closeup scene this is what’s bouncing off the door. In the background we have a @digitalsputnik DS1 set to sodium vapor spilling light into the hallway from our talents bedroom and in the foreground a fixture at 7000k pushing in light from the door window giving us a bit of moonlight spill on the wall. This short was directed by @karlstelter and Gaffed by @landonmoon

Here's a screen grab from the short film "The Long Goodbye" from director @karlstelter

In this scene we had to race the sunset to grab the shots needed in 30 mins. It was no easy feat as we ran around hiking and shooting until the sun set over the mountains. But what we captured was magic! I love using the easy rig for scenes like this, it lets me grab quick shots off the hip without getting tired. ⠀

In this shot I'm using the Arri Master Anamophic 50mm lens on the Alexa Mini, it's paired with a Black Glimmer Glass 1/4 to give us a bit more highlight roll-off and bloom as well as to cut the sharpness of the Arri glass. ⠀

Frame from “Angus and The Boys” a short film I DP’d is having a private screening tonight in Austin. Bummed I’ll be missing it as I’m out of town but excited for @samcooke to show the crew and friends what we’ve been up to! Can’t wait to share it at some point down the road.
