This is my latest project! My friend Eve created this new project called the Tri-City 2011 MVP Cyphers and asked me to jump on as the video editor! Basically this project contains people from West Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties that came together and freestyle about anything and everything. This project definitely shows the lyrically creativity of these guys and I’m glad I had the opportunity to worked on this project. Check it out!
This is the official Webbz “I’m A Star” Music Video! The entire video was shot in Miramar, Florida in 3 hours! We shot this video on a Canon EOS Rebel T2i. It was my first time using the T2i for a music video and it definitely performed very well. Watch out for Webbz because he’s about to blow up! Stay tuned … more videos will be coming soon!! http://www.GaryDunkel.com
This is my brand new 2011 Demo Reel. It is a compilation of my work dating back about 6 years to the present time. This video shows my skills as a Director, Producer, Cinematographer, Writer, & Editor! Please let me know what you think!
Local South Florida rapper “Webbz” from Miramar, Florida has a lot of buzz surrounding him. His lyrics and beats flow together so perfectly to create amazing music. I’ve had the chance to work with Webbz for the first time two years ago when I directed the “Check Me Out” Music Video for Nove featuring Brisco and Webbz. Right away I knew Webbz had the potential to be something huge. I’ve been wanting to work on another music video with Webbz for awhile now. Luckily he called me to direct the music video for his latest freestyle song “I’m A Star!” We shot the entire video in just a few hours. Everything was shot in Miramar because he really wants to represent his city to separate himself from all of the other Miami-Dade rappers! The entire music video was shot on a Canon EOS Rebel T2i HDSLR and will be released all over the internet sometime next week! Stay Tuned to http://www.GaryDunkel.com!! Webbz has just released a brand new mixtape called “The Pursuit of Happiness” and you can follow him on twitter @WebbzCX and me @GaryDunkel!!
Finally after several months of pre-production work and scheduling conflicts we have now an official shoot day for “There Goes The Neighborhood!” We will be shooting the entire film this coming Sunday May 15th! One day shoots are always rough for an entire film but I have put together my usual film crew (Producer Adam Kaplan & Director of Photography Dominic Easter) to make sure that things run smoothly! We had 2 rehearsals with the cast to really work on the dialogue and block out the scenes! I really like how the performances have been with the cast and I believe this is gonna be a great film!
This is a comedy-turned-action film about a DEA Agent going undercover under the name of “Willy Doit” and how he takes down a major drug supplier! Writer/Actor Jason Galotti had originally came to me with another script that we were gonna shoot but we decided to shoot this one first! Once I read the script I thought it was very funny and after a few drafts it became even funnier! I’ve always wanted to direct an action sequence where Federal Agents or Police raid a house so the fact that this is a part of this film is super exciting for me! I’m really honored that Jason asked me to Direct these films and I’m really excited to work with him! I look forward to bringing another great script to life! Stay tuned!
This is my first official time-lapse of the Miami skyline! I was shooting the skyline across the bay by the MacArthur Causeway. This time lapse was created by using 5 second intervals on the Shoot Timer Remote. All together it took 598 photos to complete this time-lapse and almost 2 hours!
I have always admired time lapse videos! I think it is one of the coolest effects you can do and I really love watching them. I wanna start doing my own time lapse videos so I looked at random videos on youtube to kinda get an idea of what to do and I came across the video above! That video is incredible. It is very well put together with the editing and music! I plan on doing a lot of my own time lapse videos soon. I’m going to Vegas next month and I will definitely be doing one while I’m there as well as other photos! The way I used to do time lapse videos never looked right. I used to lock down my Panasonic DVX 100B video camera on a tripod, press record and let it run for a while and then take it into Final Cut and speed it up. That way kinda works but it definitely doesn’t work if you’re trying to do a sunrise/sunset or an extended period of time! With a DSLR it’s so much easier and it actually works! I’ll post up my own time lapse videos when they’re created!
