Boat Safety begins not with oars, but with determination and courage. Each vessel, port and starboard, must be deemed seaworthy. Each sailor in aforementioned vessels employ must be judged by a court of the deep seas as being buoyant and intrepid. For every barnacle accounted, there must be a jib, pulley, and aft. When the nigh winds howl at ye wooden leg, a boat safety expert must welome them not with merely a grimace, but a defiant scowl, your good eye glistening with the grit of the anticipation of battle. To safely maneuver a boat from one channel to another strait, from these waters to those shores, from bay to bight to tomorrow’s evanescent anchorage, a true practitioner of boat safety must muster an unparalleled depth of knowledge of all things life preserver, choke, and mast. Unto each sail, may ye flap in safe waters, and unto each mooring may ye sway in safe harbor, for where the creed of boat safety travels, thereunto all men shall be safe boating.
Last year during the frigid winter of 2017 I had the opportunity to DP this funny short film directed by my good friend Jono Freedrix. Starring the inimitable Bob Greenberg as a hapless rube of love, Chivalry is a concise satire of the norms of male-female relationships as explored in one date.
Shot all in one day on location in Brooklyn, NY, this film was a great opportunity to work fast and creative with an awesome crew, cast, and director.
