the Gracies – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

October 12, 2010

Recently worked on a documentary with Brasilian director Pedro Gorski about Hélio Gracie, one of the founders of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and an all-around amazing human being. As always, I was found behind the still camera, producing production stills. Without a doubt an extraordinary group of men across the board, and it was an honor getting to meet each one of them. Here are a few selects from the experience.

We started at the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, CA. We interviewed with Rorion Gracie and his sons, Rener and Ryron. While there, we also interviewed Ed O’Neill, who has been training at the Gracie Academy for 18 years *AND* is a black belt!










On the last day of production, we found ourselves at the home of Royce Gracie. We finished off the shoot with a couple of short interviews.





Can’t wait to hit the big time so I can start taking classes!
