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.

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 […]

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.


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: […]
