Cinematographer

My 2019 Reel

Gerald Lewis

 

I am a Video Creative, based in the Portland/Vancouver area of the Pacific Northwest.

My experience over many years, starting with the BBC in Wales has served me well, and I am called on by Advertising Agencies, Creative Shops, and Production Companies who use me in a variety of roles within the video production pipeline. Tybach Production Services is the Production Company through which I've run projects for the last 20 years.

Though I'm often hired as a Cinematographer due to my extensive knowledge and experience in that discipline, I also have years of experience in other areas of video production including direction, producing, and editing.

Traveling with equipment has become cost prohibitive, and in recent years I've also become a trusted source to call on for dependable local crew and production equipment. Simply put, if you are a production coming in from out of town, call me and I will help you fill in the gaps so it's one less thing you have to worry about.

I’ve been told my strong work ethic and approachable personality, combined with my experience and knowledge make me a valuable asset to any production.

CANON XC15 - their latest DSLR designed primarily for video. This shoots 4K video, has Dual XLR inputs and has color profiles to match the C300.

This camera is light, easy to use and complements the C300 beautifully. With matching C300 profiles it is an inexpensive way to get a second camera on your shoot! It is also ideal for using on the Rhino Slider or the RONIN-S shown below.


Dare to move

The DJI Ronin-S is the perfect 3 axis gimbal camera mount. Handheld, and supporting up to 16 lbs this will take any of the camera listed above.

Quick and easy to set up this allows the complete freedom of camera position and movement, Get rock steady video, even when moving quickly, rough terrain, stairs or simply following a subject - add an extra dimension to your video with this unit.

The Rhino Slider Ultimate Package - with both 42" and a 24" Carbon Fiber rail this slider will add massively to your production values.          

Quick and easy to set up this can be used with a flywheel or with a programmable motor. Motorized tracking with everything from slow, snail like,  speeds to very fast moves - all super smooth and with programmable ramping up and down. Add the available ARC and you have automatic panning - keeping your subject in frame for the whole move.  The Rhino can be set for one direction track  or for constant looping.

DJI Mavic Air - Need a different perspective? The Mavic Air is a perfect platform for you. A drone that provides both Hi-Res stills and 4K and 1080 video. Stand out from your competitors with unique aerial footage.

Grip and Electric - choose from Tungsten Soft boxes, several different Bi-Color LEDs packages, all fully dimmable and 100% waterproof (remember, this is The Pacific Northwest),  These have LED crystals, not bulbs meaning that you get the full number of crystals in play at all time these are BRIGHT!                                            

Like the look of KINOs? I have the French Balcor fluorescents available, with both daylight and tungsten tubes.

The Balcor fluorescents are smaller and faster to set up than Kinos and give a beautiful soft light.

Also available - a standard grip kit. C-stands, Flags, Nets, Diffusion etc. All the usual goodies!
