Filming the ocean

When I’m not at work, I’m on the ocean. Combining my love of the water with my passion for technology, I helped a friend shoot a commercial for his surf shop in my town. We took his film crew out on my boat to film stand-up paddle boarders, and then overlaid the footage with interviews of my friend. It was a great marketing piece for him and a fun experience for both of us.
