thx - everythang (feat. bad lucc, problem & travis barker)I love Kinji Fukasaku's cinema, particularly his 'Yakuza Papers' series, so when I got the chance to pitch Scion AV for a video and it turned out that the artist wanted to explore a Japanese theme, I jumped on the occasion to explore this inspiration. Faced with a very quick turnaround on the production, I was able to take full advantage of the immediate nature of social networking and quickly cast a variety of fitting characters like Masuimi Max, Marcus Natividad and Chris Trouble Delfosse.Check out the behind the scenes write up and photos by my friends and cinematographers The Joelsons.[2014] producer | director | editor

the burning of rome - when in tijuanaThe song the label wanted a video for brought me visions of a demented circus. Music videos are quite a silly medium when one really thinks about it and I didn't want to just film another performance or high concept thing, so how I ended up staging a fake 'real' kidnapping of the band, I'm not quite sure. My friend and fellow filmmaker Checo was in Tijuana pre-producing his deeply embedded 'documentary/ethnofiction' film about narcotrafficking, so he was able to help me with casting some legit street characters to play the part of the bad guys.After I yelled cut on the prank and everyone reveled in their renewed appreciation of life, the band was on a sustained adrenaline high. They were super happy to have a new lease on life, and they were excited to go on with the project.Inspiration for the first song was Takeshi Kitano's 'Sonatine', where a bunch of gangsters pass time on a beach playing morbid games. For the second act, the band morphs into Tijuana street performers, and finally at the end, we get to follow their kidnappers and persecutors as they roam the streets of night time TJ.Features three of their singles:- Ballad Of An Onion Sprout @ 03:30- Cowboys & Cut Cigars @ 07:22- Island @ 11:24A bit of info on the making-of... All the local participants are 'non-actors' and they all have their own stories to tell, of deportation, street deals, or day-to-day hustles..theburningofrome.com[2012] producer | director | editor

cowboys & cut cigars (butthole surfers mix)The label expected a performance music video for The Burning Of Rome. I never told them who the performers would be. This song became the touchdown celebration for the Dallas Cowboys.. :D

dido brown ft. jayo felony - take em all outThis was the last video I got to shoot on film. I kind of miss the organic and unpredictable nature of it. Like when the old messed up Bolex we were using as a B camera lost registration. Cool effect that you can now replicate in post, but looks more fun when it's for real :) ..this was also a time when I could have started directing more music videos, but Playstation came knocking at my door, and fresh out of school I could not deny that opportunity.Director of photography: Kevin Joelson.[2008] producer | director | editor
