So it's been about 5 months since my last post which means it's about time to check back in with my blog. I've been keeping pretty busy this year. Projects are slowly getting bigger and maybe even slower than that, they're getting better. There are a few new music videos and Funny or Die videos to post but that work has slowed down as I've been keeping busy with a few commercial clients. This summer/fall I've spent time in San Diego and LA for NBC's new promo campaign. I've continued working with Media Arts Lab, and worked on a feature film in Van Nuys, and one in Kansas City. I also worked on part of a short that was just accepted into the Sundance Film Festival. It's another Team G installment, which will make this the third time my name will scroll past a Sundance audience. Here's a short tease. It's the only part of the film I actually worked on. It's a fictional infomercial that is a part of the storyline and will play in the film:
My most recently finished music video was shot by my friend Wyatt Garfield for the band Best Coast.
Funny or Die allowed me to work with David Mamet, a famous playwright, director, and screenwriter. In one short day we shot two projects. He, and Danny DeVito were a joy to work with. Check them out here:
I also got to work on a music video for Cee Lo Green. It was still a funny or die project, made for the soundtrack to the Will Ferrel film, "The Other Guys." The video features Eva Mendez, and the song was written by composer Jon Brion.
Before that I worked with magician Ricky Jay who you may recognize from P.T. Anderson films. This one's a bit dry, but I enjoyed the day.
There have been a few more FOD videos. One with Joey McIntyre from new kids on the block, A short with Joshua Jackson of Dawson's Creek and Fringe, and the first video I ever worked on for FOD, Mind Ride, finally posted a year after we shot it. You can look those up if you're interested, I just didn't want to bore. I'll write again, maybe in less than 5 months.
