Spring: the fairest of the seasons

Henry (Justin Phillip) is a wannabe cowboy, but the changing country pulls him away from his ranching aspirations and into WWII, the burgeoning oil industry, and the strange world of ventriloquist dummy peddling. He has to balance his myriad of career paths with his troubled family life and diminishing expectations over the course of five or six, or maybe even seven or eight decades. Spring: The Fairest of the Seasons won a Best Short Form Achievement in Filmmaking award at the Covellite International Film Festival, best Narrative Short at the Los Angeles Film and Script Festival and Best Achievement in Short Form Directing at the Cinematic Arts Film Festival.

The land of cain

Premiered at the ZERO FILM FESTIVAL. Shot over a weekend in Los Angeles with a crew of four, this could very well be the last film ever shot using the tragically discontinued Kodak Ektachrome stock, but don’t quote me on that.

Shot in one night on a Bolex with a two man crew using props and sets I constructed myself. Also, not to brag or anything, but I did all the music for this short as well.

lonely hearts in outer space

Nina Simone: feeling good (bassnectar remix)

Project for Verve. This was a one day solo shoot within Los Angeles. I make a couple of appearances in this, but I generally like to keep facts like that under wraps.

Bruce sudano: things are changing

Found footage compilation for Bruce Sudano off of his Angels on a Carousel album.

Astrid Gilberto: fly me to the moon (kaskade remix)

Video for Verve using Public Domain footage and some additional filmed textures. There are few things in life better than cutting together vintage sci-fi footage and obviously this video doesn't disappoint in that department.

Remix video for Verve using original footage from my short film Lonely Hearts in Outer Space.

Remix video for Verve using the song’s original music video from 1982 and Public Domain footage spiced up with some textures I shot and colored.
