I'm a DP in LA but I also founded a company called ShareGrid, where filmmakers can rent gear to each other with integrated insurance.
For our blog, I host interviews with filmmakers from our community about their experiences and we just recently released our newest series with DP, Jas Shelton (Keanu, Togetherness, The Stanford Prison Experiment).
I would love for you guys to check it out. There's some valuable insight as Jas talks about how he became a DP out of film school, shooting with the Duplass Brothers, managing a crew, having a positive attitude on set and his visual strategy on his newest feature, Keanu (Key and Peele).
I hope everyone enjoys the series and finds it helpful!
