PlanetZaya Filming with Musician Caleb Quaye

Elton John & Caleb Quaye

I received a call from cinematographer Jonathan Pascual from PlanetZaya about filming a musician in the Loft. He and his crew, including Emmy Award winning producer, Valerie Tucker rolled through for a two camera shoot. They even brought a jib.

They brought Caleb Quaye, his Stratocaster and a small Marshall amp. Caleb has a worldwide reputation as a signature lead guitar player since the late 60’s and early 70’s. He is known most notably as Elton John’s original lead guitarist having played on all the “early stuff”, as well as numerous studio sessions for many other name artists, such as Harry Nilsson, Beach Boys, Mick JaggerJoan Baez, Al Kooper, David Foster, John Klemmer, Eddie HendersonDusty Springfield, Liza Minnelli, Brenda Russell, Ralph McTell, Pete Townsend, The Troggs, Hall & Oates.

Caleb is working on a documentary project to coincide with his recent book, telling his story and the history made throughout the years working with music legends.

Here’s the trailer:

“Still Project” Video Shoot

We were contacted by Jonathan & Carrie Pascual of PlanetZaya about shoot a promo for their upcoming film “Still”, a full feature length documentary film woven together using the stories of families who have suffered the loss of a baby to pregnancy or infant loss. August 1, 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the birth of the Pascual’s first child, Elena Rebekah. Elena was stillborn on August 1, 2002 at 21 weeks gestation. Since Elena’s death, Jonathan and Carrie have used their grief and experiences to help other grieving parents on this long dark road of pregnancy and infant loss.

In 2006, Jonathan left his desk job to enter the world of film making. He and Carrie then created their own film making company; Planet Zaya. Their company is named after their now 7-year old son, Isaiah. Isaiah was also born premature after Carrie spent months on bed rest, but is now a healthy growing young boy. View pictures below of Isaiah and our daughter Brooklyn hanging out on the fire escape at the LOFT.
