I co-directed and edited this dance film with choreographer/ dancer/renaissance man Robert Kitsos. I also shot it with my Sony FS 100. I broke the golden rule of video and shot right into the sky with the whites blown off the charts. The results: stunning - if I don't say so myself. Rules are made to be broken. We also got some great action shots with the ever dependable Go Pro. I edited this in Adobe Premiere and got some decent super slo-mo in the box. Proud of this one. Unbound creativity is a rare treat.

I recently edited this hilarious short film written by Neil Potter and featuring comedian Lenny Marcus, Peter Vouras, and Larry Mitchell. Once again, this one proves that a good script is an editor's best friend.
Look for it in a film festival near you soon.
We did sound design and mix for this film debut for the young filmmaker Ryan Chan. Keep an eye for this kid.
Directed, shot, edited and did effects work for this dynamic music video for Fire Dean and The Brooklyn Garden Club. This one was the maximum high concept DIY project. We started by turning a carport into a green screen studio so we could get real exterior lighting. Then we composited that footage over aerial footage we got by raising a Go Pro into the sky with helium balloons and a fishing pole! We also used the Go Pro for some nice underwater footage including some perhaps ill-advised shots in minor rapids... Finally, for the coup de grace, we raised Fire Dean up into a tree with an electric winch. (this actually took 5 different tries before we got it right, but I think it was worth it)
All compositing and painting was done in After Effects and the color correct was courtesy the Red Giant color suite. (On a side note, this song was also recorded by Daniel Weintraub at his Hells Kitchen Recording studio.)

For the past year and a half, we have been shooting a documentary about American musical icon Pauline Oliveros. Pauline has been at the forefront of American music and technology since 1960. If you know who she is, you love her and her work. If you have not heard of her, then it is very likely an artist you love was influenced by her work. We just completed our Indiegogo campaign. Check out the Indiegogo page to see some video clips and learn more about this extraordinary woman and this very exciting project. In the meantime, here is a quick edit I did of a short film about Pauline's installation at the 2014 Whitney Biennial:
