You’re about to secure your camera to your tripod base plate and realize you forgot a flathead screwdriver and don’t have any coins in your pocket. Don’t you wish you had something handy on your keychain?

After days of Googling things like “flathead keychain”, “base plate tool” and “filmmaker keychain” I finally stumbled upon this perfect little tool made by Miller Tripods. Probably one of the most useful pieces of schwag out there!  It’s not listed on their website but a friendly email to them might get you one of these gems and you’ll be on your way to becoming a more efficient filmmaker :)

I’m working on a new pooch video with my friends at BarkBox/BarkPost. A few years ago I directed a few short spots featuring some of my best friends – Have a look here!

Here’s a behind the scenes shot of Audrey and I. Stay tuned for the final video :)
