See you at DC Shorts!

See you at DC Shorts!

“Baffle their minds with Bullsh*t, Kerry Leigh” will screen at the DC Shorts Film Festival. It’s the largest audience-driven collection of short films in the country. As this is one of the few festivals with content selected by audience, not committee, we were especially happy to make the cut.

Making Champagne Explode: Actually Quite Difficult

Making Champagne Explode: Actually Quite Difficult

Every month, Affinity Lab puts together a this video “calendar” which serves as a fun reminder to members about what’s going on, and a promo to get non-members involved in events. We went through several bottles of champagne and got a surprising variety of foamy explosions. (Thanks Dad.) Shot on the Canon 7D at 60fps, […]


Dreams For Kids: Holiday For Hope

Dreams For Kids: Holiday For Hope

AD2DC put together a campaign as part of their public service this year for the Dreams For Kids Holiday for Hope event. This is a “thank you sponsors” piece that DFK can use for fund-raising/marketing collateral and for the press kit. I had a little help from “White Christmas,” but a flimmaker could not ask […]

Reporting for The Express: BRAAAINNS!

Fellow Affinity Lab member Olivia and I covered the this year’s Silver Spring Zombie Walk for The Express.

Pop-Up Video!

Pop-Up Video!

Here’s my best explanation of how this happened. Jackie Cantwell (Curating for a Cause) partnered up with Josh Phelps (Monument Music and Arts Festival) to create a art show/auction hosted by Affinity Lab and sponsored by PBR with all proceeds going to Dreams for Kids. Whew. Well in the end; it happened. And the kids […]


Rendered Fatback: The Remix

Rendered Fatback: The Remix

Here’s the Fatback video recut to an awesome song licensed from PPU Records, a DC- based funk label. It’s got mostly the same footage as the Outstanding version, just slightly tweaked. Although the change in pace with the new song does give the piece a more lively feel. It’s certainly a more obvious dance choice. […]

Rendered Fatback

Password: rendered Thanks to the Fatback DJ Collective for having me out to the 9:30 club for their yearly appearance so I could gratuitously rack focus on the new 7D. So creamy… Now they can wallow in this night forever, as any good Fatbacker should.
