The Trainer


A little while ago I assisted on a short film called "The Trainer" directed by Clayton Jacobson. The film was produced in collaboration with Canon using their brand new DSLR, the EOS 5D Mark II. Clay got to test drive the camera and decided to make a short documentary about his father's career as a boxing coach. Many of you will recognise Ron from his role as the hilariously mean-spirited dad in "Kenny".

The film was a lot of fun to work on. I got to work alongside DP Peter Falk (who was the director of photography on "The Jammed") which was really great.

You can watch "The Trainer" here.

There's also a making of video (in which you get to see me standing around looking useless). You can check that out here.
