Via Papale
Added on 6/7/2010
The Via Papale is a first HD documentary ever shot in Rome, Italy. I used my Panasonic HDX900 camera with Fujinon 16x6.3 wide angle lens. I provided camera op, lighting and audio for 3 weeks in Italy and in several locations in the United States. We gained unprecedented access to the Vatican and area churches.


I've partnered with Sonja on projects including training programs, documentaries, and event coverage. The vast amount of experience, skill, craft, and professionalism she brings to each project is a huge asset to my projects. When PilotGirl is shooting, I know it's going to look great. I definitely plan to work with her again.
