GRASSROOTS: The Film

GRASSROOTS: The Film

I shot this piece featuring 2012 DC City Council candidate Max Skolnik. It is part of the marketing and outreach campaign for the upcoming feature-length comedy about local politics statting Jason Biggs, Lauren Abrose, Cedric the Entertainer, and Tom Arnold! Shot on the Canon 7d.


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 […]


What Cornel West’s Laugh is Like

What Cornel West's Laugh is Like

Sockets Records asked me to cover a showcase at The Black Cat featuring a few bands on the label, including The Cornel West Theory. This was initially just going to be some pick-ups from the show, but as we had some downtime before the show, we snagged some interviews on the fly. Mesmerized by their […]


6-12 Year Olds: Far Cooler than Me

6-12 Year Olds: Far Cooler than Me

These girls, umm, rock? This week-long camp, created by a vast swath of the DC arts community,  teaches music, performance, and a litany of life skills to young Washingtonians. This is their final show at The 9:30 Club. It was one of the best rock shows I have ever attended, and the most fun I […]


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

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.


After Effects DC Web Banner

After Effects DC Web Banner

After Effects DC has arrived! I’m excited about picking the brains of more experienced designers in person. I’m pretty tired of only picking up new tricks from 11-year-olds on youtube. In the spirit of creative competition, members were asked to submit a design for the banner on the Adobe Groups’ website. Here are the constraints: […]


Something Still

Something Still

This is a redesign of some print materials for my day job.  This brochure template needs to be accessible to non-tech-savvy folks and have a static form that can accommodate different photos and statistics. The goal is to keep as much information static as possible, to allow for quick updates, yet each brochure should feel […]
