I’ve made a ton of music videos, commercials and documentaries. Here are a few:

Ben Lovett’s “Black Curtain”

Ben Lovett is a very cool film composer and indie musician, and he’s known for his somewhat ambitious music videos. A few years ago I pitched him an Edwardian-era spiritualist-occult kinda thing, and he ran with it. Soon, we had a crew of over 60, a cast of over 100, all filmed in an insane weekend at a Masonic Temple that had been closed to the public for over 80 years!

Yo La Tengo

I was asked by Moog Music and Paste Magazine to create an online music series, to be shot at the Moog headquarters in Asheville. So I did. Some of the people I shot and directed were New Jersey legends Yo La Tengo, Medeski, Martin & Wood, moe., and more.

Medeski, Martin & Wood

I had never seen these guys play live before we worked together. I had always thought they were sort of a jazzy, jam band kinda thing. Boy, was I wrong! These guys rock!

Underhill Rose

I’ve had the pleasure to work with the Underhill Rose folks many times. I cannot speak highly enough of their talent, their passion and their integrity. A huge favorite of mine.

In the long line of film projects that coulda happened but hasn’t yet is Your Ass Is Grass. A female-led, mind-bending thriller, YAIG was picked up by various production companies, and I created a teaser for the project, along with Blind Lyle Film’s Jaime Byrd and Adam Cohen. Voiced by the inimitable Carrie Preston, this project is still under development.

Not long ago, Asheville’s EDC and T3 Creative asked me to create a series of videos highlighting various cool local companies. Naturally, Moog Music would be in there.

I’ve done quite a bit of government documentary work for Native Americans. This was a project created by Two Feathers Media, for CMS, and featured Wes Studi (Avatar, Last of the Mohicans).

Sometimes I shoot for my friends, too. This is Nights Bright Colors, Jason Smith‘s cool project.
