omg, elle fanning is the sweetest most wonderful person to work with. not to gush (but to gush...), i had a set crush on her for months after the shoot.

thank you thomas whiteside for bringing me into the fold to direct and shoot the video portion to this feature editorial piece. actress elle fanning, star of maleficent and trumbo, and the highly anticipated 20th century women (out feb 10) is on the cover of elle magazine's february issue, which addresses how to be happy in 2017.

honestly, elle, you made it easy to capture beautiful images that day. it was a pleasure being the director and cinematographer on set with you. thank goodness for my trusty sidekick, the canon c300 mark ii, one of my favorite 4k cinema eos cameras. it's always saving me in low light situations.

check out this cute little video we put together, edited by your two favorite editors brit phelan (myself) and cal laird.
