James, the Director of Photography, shot on anamorphic lenses and graded in 4K, making this our first project finished in Ultra-High Definition. Ghostlight also removed Adam’s front tooth using Visual Effects, which involved animating and replacing his tongue and lower teeth. Produced by Brian Dillingham. Makeup by Salette Corpuz. Music by Alfred Montejano. Thanks everybody!
We got to work on STAR WARS, our all-time favorite movie series! Having previously shot all the behind-the-scenes footage on J.J. Abrams’ previous film Star Trek Into Darkness, we were invited to join him again in a galaxy far far away for the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, opening Christmas 2015.
Highlights include: boarding the Millennium Falcon (and crying), capturing Han’s famous line (and crying), reuniting with Trek and Bad Robot family, meeting new talented cast and crew, and witnessing cinema history in the making. It was truly the most amazing experience of our lives, so we did our best to capture it for our fellow fans who couldn’t be there. Thank you to everyone involved. We can’t wait to see this movie!

After we returned from London filming behind-the-scenes on Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, LucasFilm invited us to shoot Star Wars Celebration 2015 in Anaheim, CA. It was a thrill to reunite with cast and crew, capture all the surprises, and to be surrounded by our fellow friendly, funny, and passionate superfans. This will be a day long remembered.

Dave went to Japan for three weeks to make this video for Sports Camp of America, an authentic American summer camp experience for Japanese kids. The challenge was how to show the camp’s huge range of activities and emotions in just a few minutes. Huge thanks to the staff, counselors, and campers for the wonderful experience!
