Seeing light, textures and soundscapes in my world travels. They surround me and inspire me to collaborate with amazing artists, characters and friends.
I am the Director at VIDEOWAYS — A Video Production Boutique creating commercials, music videos and short films. Always unconventional, and never compromising.
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.
BELL RUNG — NFL Concussion Documentary
I had the opportunity to be the CINEMATOGRAPHER on a Feature Documentary about
NFL player’s severe, life altering concussions and the controversy
surrounding head injuries in the sport of American Football. It is currently in the Festival Circuit. I Learned the scope of a bigger, long term project.
here is the trailer.
I worked as an Adobe After Effects Artist for video plugin software developer Digieffects for 2 years. It was my responsibility to test software for bugs and to create marketing videos, tutorials and project files for new and updated special effect plugins.
This is an example of one of the product marketing videos for Damage Version 2.
