NEBULOUS

TITLE SEQUENCE

Nebulous is a title sequence for a show that will never air. It was filmed on our office counter top on a slow day with a Canon 70-200 lens with a macro lens adapter. Our actors on set were two cheap lights and a glass ball. Adding graphical interface elements and sound design helped sell the visuals. We sprinkled in the names of friends and colleagues and called it a day.

THE WASHINGTON ATHLETIC CLUB

THE MATADOR NETWORK

SEATTLE FROM THE AIR

The Matador Network is a travel and lifestyle media channel that pumps out fantastic content to over 10 million unique viewers per month. Our contacts at Matador got wind of our drone purchase and commissioned us to create a video for their popular series of aerial videos from different cities around the world. I was the primary drone operator for this little piece.

PALLADIAN HOTEL

GRAND OPENING TEASER

The Palladian Hotel by Kimpton wanted a grand opening teaser video that spoke to their target demographic. Located between downtown Seattle and Belltown, The Palladian wanted a vibe somewhere between modern and pushing the edge. The Palladian was still under construction, so we developed a concept that avoided showcasing interiors and focused on the energy and style of the hotel.

MORAD

toughest antennas in the world

Morad is the oldest antenna company in the United States and built their reputation on making the strongest antennas in the world. They didn't have a large budget but wanted to show customers that quality is their top priority. I wrote a lot of script variations, but ended up deciding that simpler so we could match the visuals with the voiceover.

ZACH FLEURY

KICKSTARTER

Zach Fleury wanted to get his second album, Tapes & Reels, funded via Kickstarter. Since we had such a successful go-round the first time, we were well-prepared to document the extensive artistry and people he surrounds himself with to make his whimsical visions come to life. He blew past his $27K goal, receiving over $36K to bring his new project to life.

HUNGRY MAN

COMMERCIAL

Hungry Man was looking to distance themselves from their lumberjack characters of the past and appeal to a more modern demographic. We wanted to create a character who was smart, funny, masculine, and unapologetic-- a hero for the common man. Tyler Roberts showed up for the casting call and we knew we'd found our man.

SUSY SUN

MUSIC VIDEO

Susy Sun’s ‘Never Again’ is a song about love lost and wisdom gained. She wanted ballet dancers and a white piano so we made it happen. I wanted a visual contrast that represented  both the feelings of melancholy nostalgia and optimism, so I opted for very bright white scenes of her performance against the soft, dark performance of the dancers.

MACKLEMORE

BEHIND THE SCENES

Macklemore was in our office building with fashion photographer Alvin Nguyen, doing a photoshoot for Papercut Magazine. Alvin asked if I'd be interested in stopping by film some behind the scenes footage. Hell yes ...please.

ZACH FLEURY

KICKSTARTER

Zach Fleury is an amazing Seattle singer, musician, producer, and most importantly, a genuinely awesome dude. Zach's narrative music style entangles stories from his life with dream-like fantasies to create a sound that is entirely his own. We're looking forward to working with again him soon. After one showing of the video to Zach's close circle, his album was successfully funded without Kickstarter.

JUSTIN FROESE

KICKSTARTER

Seattle musician Justin Froese needed a Kickstarter video to fund his next full-length album. He'd seen some of the work I'd done with Zach Fleury and contacted me about filming and editing. I spent a day traveling around with him, playing music on the streets, drinking coffee, getting the boot from Pike's Place Market, and recording a practice session with some of his fellow musicians.  His album was successfully funded.

DLIST MAGAZINGE

PHOTOSHOOT

After seeing several of my early event videos, DList contact me to gauge my interest in filming a behind the scenes video for one of their shoots. This was my first time filming a fashion shoot so I didn't really know what to expect. As luck would have it, I was filming Teela, one of the most sought-after models from Seattle.
