LA Film Festival

I returned earlier this week from one of the biggest wake up calls/ learning experiences of my film career. I need to up my game! Not just with making better films, I'm always trying to out do my pervious work, but this was just by chance that the programming director, Drea, saw my music video and invited me to the festival and I could have been entering my work into festivals this whole time. Not only that, but the whole networking aspect. A simple thing like handing someone a business card seemed so foreign to me. I did meet some great directors that weekend and was very humbled by how great they were! I have a new excitement for my craft now. The bar has been raised and I'm thrilled about that!
Here's to next years LA Film Festival and other cities to come!

Here are some of my favorites from the screening:

Trouble in LA

About a month ago I got a surprising call from my friend Andy saying that there was someone from the LA Film Festival trying to get a hold of me to enter the music video I made for Andy (Astronautalis). I receive a call from the LA Film Fest and get all the info I need shortly after and get Trouble Hunters entered. This still all seems kind of surreal. I wasn't planning on being able to attend the Festival, but my family and friends had a plan in motion to raise money to not only send me, but my girlfriend Martha as well! I can't thank everybody enough for doing that for us.

Also, there's another Jacksonvillian in the Festival line-up: Fur in My Cap: Rob Roy

Frame grabs from 50's Shoot with Ezra

Stay tuned.....

UPDATE: Here's the video. I'm happy with how it turned out, although I wish I would have used some type of stabilization. I din't realize how shaky it was until I started viewing the footage on the computer, but you live and learn and whatevs...

Electric President

Here's the latest video I did for Electric President. The song is titled The Violent Blue from the new album of the same name. This was a challenging video to shoot as it was shot on the beach at night during winter with a very healthy wind blowing sand in our faces the whole time. It was also my first time shooting with the Canon EOS 7D, which I borrowed from my friend Michael. I'm completely in love with these new DSLR cameras.

I will be shooting a follow up video for this album in the next couple of weeks.

Also I am working with Mr. Richrad Colado on a video for his upcoming album "Youngster." I'm really excited about this video. It's going to be a tough one to execute. I love a good challenge!

I went to Arizona recently with my family to see the rest of my family. Apart from seeing my family I was really excited to film somewhere new and different. I felt somewhat uninspired by the scenery here in Jacksonville. I'm sure everybody feels that about where they live every now and then, but damn.... there's really not a whole lot to look at here!

Here's the video from our trip:
