Documentary Short
"Staying On My Feet" Now Online


John was DP on this short doc that was recently completed by London-based filmmaker Ivy Jelisavac. Ivy met the subject, Stascia Lynne, online through a fitness website and was inspired by her story, so inspired that at age 21 she decided to come to New York City alone and for the first time to make this project. The film was shot in 5 days, and John worked as a one-person crew on a Canon 5D Mark II. The footage was later graded and edited in Germany.
