    Lucas was a joy to work with. He intuitively understood our vision and did a beautiful job delivering it. He's the sort of DP you can trust to not only execute the shot list, but to also make great judgement calls if he's left alone in the field. Professional, efficient and artful. Would recommend to anyone.

    It was a real pleasure working with Lucas. I have not seen the footage yet but I really look forward to it! I hope we have the opportunity to work together again.

    Meet the viral TikTok teens capitalizing on cringe For 19-year-old Sebastian Bails, fame is a full-time job. Like the YouTubers and Vine stars before him, he’s part of a growing cohort of young people finding celebrity and influence online — this time, on TikTok, a new social media platform for short-form videos. Bails considers himself one of TikTok’s cringiest creators, a brand he’s parlayed into an audience of millions. But fame comes at a price.

    Interview with John Carney, former NFL placekicker In praise of NFL kickers, who nobody cares about until the game is on the line NFL placekickers don't usually score big endorsement deals or make the front page of the sports section, but their efforts can make or break the rest of the roster. Ahead of the Super Bowl, THINK spoke to former NFL kicker John Carney about the pressures on the field, and how he came back from a devastating missed field goal in 2003.
