Daughtry music video

Music videos are fun to work on, for camera at least, but this Daughtry video for "Crawling Back to you" was particularly cool. Director Laurent Briet always brings something special.
This is a still from the monitor of the techno.

Parris used a rickshaw to get the speeds needed repeatedly to achieve the Hitchcockian dolly reverse zoom effect which Laurent amplified in post to make the video really move and create a crazy look.

Operating Technocrane

Parris was operating the Technocrane on the feature movie "Sorrority Row"

Parris worked on the feature film "Innocence" with DP David Morrison, when he asked "How do you feel about stairs?" Paris said, "I feel good about'm." So he pointed to these stairs and asked "How high can you go?" Parris said "All the way!"
