“Songs I Wrote in the ’80s” music video

This one takes my previous video, “Antidote,” to the next level: a logical progression from studio to stage. Enjoy! Special thanks to Pat Redd and School of Rock Overland Park. Trivia: • The song itself was inspired by Jason Webley (troubadour accordionist extraordinaire). Late into one of his shows, when taking audience requests, someone shouted […]

Finding the Light album released!

The day has come! Finding the Light is my first commercially released album. It was a total DIY production crafted over the course of nine months, with me writing, performing, and mixing every track in my home studio, whose songs form a loose theme: the fall and rise of a musician. A music video at […]

“Antidote” music video

With my Finding the Light album release this week, I figured I should preview a full track. And in the same spirit as the recording process, why not keep the video DIY, too? Trivia: • Self-shot with a single GoPro on a gooseneck clamp in my Womb With a View studio. • This was the […]

Album cover revealed!

Here it is! She’s a beaut, eh? The artwork comes from the illustrious brush of Boden Steiner. He said the concept originated in my song “Costumes,” which is a nostalgic tune that’s partly about kids auditioning different personalities (“trying on costumes”) and figuring out what kind of people they want to become. The album’s larger […]

Book Trailer (Warmed and Bound)

To coincide with today’s release of Warmed and Bound: A Velvet Anthology, I created this promo. It’s composed of imagery inspired by stories in the collection, including original music from me. The intent is to evoke a feeling, a mood—ominous, violent, and redemptive—rather than paint specific settings or characterizations. Multi-plane animation (a.k.a. “2.5-D”) was used […]

Reel Time

Time for a new gig. Like everybody else. Been thinking about going freelance (shooter mostly, maybe cutter). Never needed to make a demo reel before. Any ideas on what to include? Only your best work. Quality is far more important than length; it’s not a career retrospective. If there’s a type of project you’re not […]

RED With Envy

A former professor sent me an email recently about a movie shoot, and mentioned that they would be using a “Red Camera.” What is this new camera, and what are your thoughts on it? Is it a good product, is it expensive, and/or worth the cost? RED. The short answer is that it’s a brand […]

Serifims and Arch-angles

[…] the rule-of-thumb for fonts was to use sans-serif, lest the serifs disappear in the laces, so to speak. Now that we are entering a world of de-interlaced, HD video, does the rule still apply? Ah, tricky one – a “yes, but”/”no, if.” It wasn’t that we couldn‘t use serifs, it’s just that their details […]

The DAM Tour

I’m researching archiving solutions for my company’s digital video library. We have all sorts of video media, from VHS to HD-DVD, BetaSP masters, Quicktime, Camtasia files, RealPlayer, Windows Media and everything in-between. How should we go about filing all of this media in the digital domain so we can access it, index it, search for […]
