Ranks of Love

I spent awhile with Lesley and Brendan, friends who call themselves Fast Arrow, to work on a video for a song from their sincere (and heavily 80’s sounding) EP, “Alibi”.

We harnessed help from many friends and couldn’t have pulled it off otherwise.  I would like to give credit to all who helped, but it was a busy day, and I didn’t get to know all who showed up, so if I miss anybody, I apologize.

Cinematography, etc.: Jeff Gardiner (Dewey Manhood), myself, Devin Entz

Grip, lighting technician, PA, master electrician, and Bartender in the video: Todd Arney

Choreography: Precious Butiu

PA, etc: Tara Munoz

Lighting/Composition consultant: Olivia Mendez

Advice/Continuity: Malaki Stahl

This was all shot at the Benbow Room, which was a great place to hang out for 15 hours, and looks good too!

And, thank you to Jack Mitz, it would not have looked nearly as good without your contributions.

Jeff and I shot everything with our hacked cameras.  We have decided to make more videos and will do it under the moniker “workypants” – so look for more posted in the future on Vimeo.

Music by corespondents!

iPad/iTouch App

This is a promo video made for iSheetMusic – an application for the iPad/iTouch.   Photographer, Charlie Schuck, and I created this piece with direction from iSheetMusic.

The music was supplied by iSheetMusic as well.

Actually Really

This is a portion of video from Actually Really, a sound/video/dance performance piece that played at the North West Film Forum.  This sample played at the beginning, before the performance began.  The rest of the piece did not look like this at all…

I have started working on a small project with Charlie Shuck who is a terrific photographer based on Capitol Hill.  I’m almost finished with the first piece that begins a collaboration with Charlie, he’s got some good ideas for both commercial and experimental pieces. And, he has a great eye.

Also at this same time, I am working with Paurl Walsh and Ezra Dickinson on an installation piece, of sorts.  It’s called Actually Really and it will be at the NW Film Forum on March 17 – 19.   I am working on behalf of SoSpunWeSpunWest to create the video portion of their sound + dance piece.  These three elements will exist independently of each other, but also connected in various ways.  It is a fulfilling project to work on – Paurl is creating sounds that will be manipulated by these fancy French sensors attached to Ezra’s body.  The projected video will (hopefully) be the only light source, so that Ezra and the video are one image, from the audiences perspective.

Another Curious Mystery…

The Curious Mystery


“Night Ride Reeling”

K Records

Curious K Records band

I am in the process of making a new video for the K Records band, The Curious Mystery.  The SoSpunWeSpunWest team has most of the principle filming finished, and I have already started on some of Nick’s space voyage that will occur during his guitar solo.  Outside of the space voyage, the rest of the video borrows heavily from New Edition’s video for “Cool It Now”.  It is super fun working with this band!  I love them!
