PORTFOLIO

I am an artist of life.

With a pas­sion for film, video and visual sto­ry­telling, I am on an ongo­ing search for new ways to explore my cre­ativ­ity and nur­ture that of my peers. I am a moti­vated worker and an eager learner who is capa­ble and deter­mined to see a project through to the suc­cess­ful end.

This is a com­pi­la­tion show reel of videos I directed, shot and edited.

Cre­ated a leg­endary Kick­starter Cam­paign Video to raise over $62,000. Cre­ated look and brand­ing for the Freaker through 30 hilar­i­ous, sexy mar­ket­ing videos. Learned the strate­gic approach in brand­ing and mar­ket­ing through videos. The Freaker site and blog is super fun too www.freakerusa.com

 

 

To pro­mote the freaker, we trav­eled around the coun­try in a box truck house. In each town, we threw grilled cheese par­ties and shot videos.

This video takes place in Brook­lyn NY. I met Laura Kramer in a cof­fee shop ear­lier in the after­noon. Over cof­fee, she told me she was a dance chore­o­g­ra­pher from Mon­treal in NY for a dance work­shop. I con­vinced her to hop it the box truck and drive down the street to film her danc­ing in an explod­ing fire hydrant. I put on my roller skates and hit record on the cam­era. This is what I edited from the footage i cap­tured rolling around her and some new street friends and freaks danc­ing in the sum­mer heat.

I was selected to be Indy Mogul’s Awe­some Direc­tor of May 2012. Such an honor!

I was given a 5k bud­get to shoot and edit a film in one month. Dur­ing the month of May, I shot and edited a short film I wrote called SIX PLANETS OF THE SONG. Along with this Sci-fi noir short film, I cre­ated 3 behind the sce­nes tuto­ri­als on a few of the exper­i­men­tal processes used in mak­ing the film.

This was the fin­ished ver­sion posted at the end of the month. A few adjust­ments have been made and it is cur­rently in the fes­ti­val cir­cuit.
