No More Cake


15 Mics

This is the latest music video I finished.

The song is 15 Mics and the artist is my friend Vinny aka Verbal Phantom.

So far it’s garnered very positive reviews, which I’m pretty happy about considering it’s the first project I’ve finished since teaching myself Adobe After Effects. All the editing and animation was done by me with the illustrations being done by Kali.

I plan on doing more and more stuff with After Effects in the near future but I think this is a decent start.

Would love any feedback.

Over almost a week late, but we finally wrapped principal photography on “Johnny’s Leaving”. We still need to come up with a better title, though.IMG_0122IMG_0126 We had a crew sleepover Saturday night due to our 5:00 am call time. Straight middle school.IMG_5193We still looked like this when we got on set.
IMG_0127Sunday night we had a small celebration at our “favorite bar”.

IMG_0128 Followed by our favorite after party, ironically until about 5 am.

Teri Jacobs was our Art Director and took some really great pictures while we were on set. They definitely give you a better feel of what went down on set and what the film will look like when it’s done. Click for more pictures.

We only got about 3 hours of sleep last night. Most of the crew is running on coffee and will power. I don’t drink coffee and am not the most strong willed of individuals. Plus, I forgot to get a 5-hour energy shot this morning. Sitting in this sun-filled room is definitely wearing on me.

The one thing that is keeping me up is the energetic songs by the Hollywood based duo, LMFAO. Everyone has heard their standard club trash song “Miami” but the other few songs I have are so much better. Here’s the one I have on repeat:

1.5 days til wrap the wrap party.



How Did They Know?


They’re that good.

I’m on the set of Brotherhood Productions first film so I haven’t had time to blog for a bit. You can check out how that’s going over on the BroPro blog. I’ll get back to it soon.

So my reel is done for now. I strongly recommend clicking to the Vimeo link and watching it in HD.

I’m a fan.



I just want to once again say thank you to everybody that came out an supported the Dinner and a Movie event. We sold out AND didn’t fuck up anything up (too bad).


This is the end of the night as we were packing up. ALL of those seats were filled. Standing room only bitches.
