The Boston Celtics - Green Runs Deep Campaign

One of 2 spots directed by McFarland & Pecci for the Celtics new team line up and the Green Runs Deep Campaign.

Ball and Buck "In The Hunt"

Directed by award-winning director and photographer Mike Pecci, “In the Hunt” plays with expectations, showing how a real man who exemplifies the Ball & Buck lifestyle out in the field might find himself hunted elsewhere.

“In the Hunt” stars Jesse Leach, lead singer of American metalcore band Killswitch Engage, and Maxim model/designer Minji Cho. It was inspired in part by William Claxton’s iconic photograph of Steve McQueen eating, and in part by hunting poetry. “It’s kind of a hunted-becomes-hunter tale,” says writer Rich Tseng. “A man who’s comfortable in his style and who he is exudes that everywhere, even with something as mundane as eating.” For Pecci, “looking good is about throwing quality clothes together simply, and just filling your closet with stuff that can be just tossed on with no effort.”

READ ABOUT HOW MARVEL PUT A STOP TO THE FILM THE CALLED "TOO GOOD TO BE FAN MADE!"

I believe that there is a way to create a better and more successful Punisher on screen.  Not just for the comic book fans, but for fans of action films, fans of violence, and fans of the iconic antihero.  Frank Castle is more than a man with guns - he is a dead man on a mission.  He needs to finally be represented with respect.  I believe I can do this.  So I made a short fan film called The Dead Can’t Be Distracted. - Mike Pecci

Battery Powered Lighting on Location.
As the cinematographer for a documentary, being able to think creatively during high stress situations is key. You will be trying to find the best shot under the tightest time constraints, and you can’t be afraid to be constantly searching, constantly tweaking, to make the film better. Having a lighting kit that runs completely on batteries allows you to do some amazing setups and remote locations and lets you put lights wherever you want. This seminar will show examples of Mike’s recent work and give you an inside look at the kits he travels with. With the aid of fellow cameraman Anthony Jarvis, he will show us an example of the type of lighting they use. Mike Pecci has been a film director, photographer, & cinematographer for over 14 years. He is currently co-owner of McFarland & Pecci where he has shot and co-directed music videos, short films, and documentaries.

It's scheduled for 1:00 PM on Wednesday, May 21, Dedham Holiday Inn in the PATIO ROOM.
