Phew! Life has been busy! I've been meaning to post this music video over a week ago but kept getting bogged down with other stuff. I had the pleasure of working with the doughnut chain wearing man himself, Billy the Fridge. Billy is known for his comical content and offensive wit.Read More
Waddup world? It's been a while since I dropped a new video on you. Well today, I drop the biggest production in my career. This video took about 5 days to shoot and many more were spent planning and in the edit room. Working with JC Flow was a true pleasure. He took direction very well and had a great deal of support from his friends and family to make this all happen. This guy puts a ton of hard work into his music and it shows. I had to match that on my end and I knew it wouldn't be easy. We put a ton of work into this and I'm so happy with the way it turned out.Read More
Happy holidays ya'll! I can't believe we're so close to closing out 2011. It's been a helluva year and I'm super pumped for the next. Last year around this time, I started shooting video. I never knew what that would turn into. I've always thought of myself as a photographer but as time went on, I felt more and more comfortable in my video shoes (which are usually Vans). The video below is truly some of my best work. I put a lot of time into it. There was a lot of planning, shooting, editing and I really feel like I found the pace that I like to work at. The main goal here was to tell a story. The song tells a story and we wanted to make sure the video didn't fall short of that.Read More
I'm sure you've all seen the movie The Hurt Locker. If not, what you're about to see may not make much sense. I'm also sure most of you have seen the promo videos I've put together for Ripynt over the last six months promoting his two Ep's "On Second Thought" Vol 1 and 2. If not, you can watch them here and here. This is Ripynt's third EP release which
raps wraps up his 3 EP plan for 2011. All really solid projects and all FREE! You can download them here.
It's always a pleasure working with this dude because he's super open to my creative direction. He juiced up the dialogue while I focused on making this as Hollywood as possible and I think this is my favorite of the three.

Oh and if you can name the two people who are on the radios in the beginning, I'll hook you up with a framed surprise photo and a disposable camera! Go! I'll give you a hint, they both rap.
I've been listening to The Physics since their first album "Future Talk". I've always loved the smooth soul sounds these guys produce. Recently on a trip down to San Fran, I put "The High Society EP" on my iPod and pushed play when I sat down on the BART. It was the best soundtrack I could have selected. It really re-connected me with their music. Since then, I've been anxiously waiting for the day their new album dropped. That day happened last week and I couldn't be happier.Read More
Over the years, flyer design has been on the decline and video has been exploding. Since I was designing a lot of flyers for a while, I had a ground level view of this evolution. I’m so blown away more people aren’t doing this. Granted I have seen a few but none as clever as this. It’s a strong call to action. It’s funny and it appeals to a mass audience. It takes such a short time to shoot a little video to promote something. You can shoot it on your phone, use a Flip or even an SLR. Whatever the tool, my dude Bob Reed aka Dyslexic really made my morning by putting this out. I’m pretty sure I have a wedding to go to that night but if you aren’t plagued by the August Wedding Trend, you should definitely shake your booty to the live sounds of Dyslexic.Read More
What goes into a music video? Is there a story? Where do you shoot it? What does it need to look like? How many people will be involved? Is the song completely done? These are some of the first questions I ask during my first meeting with a musician client looking for a video. Find out the whole story of how I shot my most recent music video on the blog now.Read More
