Tiny House Hunting

FYI – Tiny House Hunting / Season 2, Episode 12

John S. Meyer, Director of Photography

Tiny House Hunting is an awesome example of a show with a relatively simple concept, executed beautifully. Working with Director Michael Bridenstine, we were able to efficiently and expertly document the experiences of people house-hunting for tiny houses.

These episodes are essentially shot “film-style”, with a single camera. So, cast members were instructed that they would be required to repeat actions multiple times, such as a walk-through to view a kitchen.

We would shoot a master shot as well as two opposing angles, then POVs and cutaways. After the main action, extensive beauty shots were done with both jib and slider to increase the production value.

Swab Stories

“Swab Stories” – VH-1

John S. Meyer, Director of Photography

Shooting for Swab Stories for VH-1 was an intense experience. Not only was the shooting very demanding, the subject matter meant that you were really getting into some very personal aspects of people’s lives!

We routinely shot with two main cameras and multiple GoPros for driving shots. Interviews were done mainly after the fact, via green-screen, then matted over backplates that were captured in the field.
