I worked as Art Director on this project with director, Jai Jamison. We were going for a “Steampunk Africa” theme. I worked African fabrics and patterns and machine and wire elements into the set and costumes– I love the dark, surrealist look that was achieved.
Sometimes you’ll find me in front of the camera instead of behind it. This music video for Common’s song “Make My Day” was a submission for a contest through the now-defunct cable network, Current. I was behind the styling for the video and co-created the concept with the editor, my friend, Jacob Ireland.
We shot the video over the course of two days in locations throughout Orlando and Central Florida. I then left town for the weekend and left him to his own devices.
The Amazing Raise is upon us again and for the second time, UMFS is going for the top spot in the “Go VIRAL!” prize category. I produced this video for the organization; directing, shooting, and editing the video within a 5-day turnaround.
Getting Ahead in AJust Gettin’ By World is a Bridges Out of Poverty program designed to help people living in poverty to identify the causes and circumstances of poverty and help them to achieve self-sufficiency. The graduates of this program spoke to me with candor and passion and I was able to produce a powerful piece of work. The video has been used to market the program to both internl and external customers.
This video is part of a series of recruitment focused videos designed to capture the attention of prospective foster parents.
The Amazing Raise is a 36 hour online giving campaign and this year for the very first time, UMFS was part of it all. The organization raised a little over 3,000 dollars from donors across the country. Not bad for a first time out, right?
