TONE is a photographer and videographer who was (and still is) a key part in heavily sparking my interest in the field of video. While 13thwitness, Maestro, and him all were huge inspirations in the field; Tone was the one who influenced me more in terms of really telling an individual's story (if it wasn't for him, I'm not sure Boundless Dreams TV would've went the route it's gone - in terms of the focus). The way he was able to capture a certain side of people, a true and honest glimpse into them, was incredible. Time in and time out he does what he sets out to do, capturing a feeling of authenticity. Not only that, he also opened my eyes to how powerful black and white can be in videos. I was telling Tone during our conversation how I feel the combination of the common black and white in addition to the setting of The Loft (his special spot where he films nearly all his videos), really provides a level of comfort and realness that bring his work to another level. Press play to hear him drop more knowledge.
This is the second episode of a new series entitled 'Flipping The Lens.' The idea behind the series is to take the folks who are usually behind the camera and turn the lens around on them to see what they're like.
