IN THEIR ROOM

December 16th, 2009 · Uncategorized

In Their Room is about gay men, bedrooms, sex and intimacy. The film veers into the bedrooms of eight different men where you see them doing everything from the most banal to the most erotic. Complimenting the revealing nature of their everyday activities are confessional interviews about fantasies, turn ons and vulnerabilities. You never leave their bedrooms, but this is unmistakably San Francisco of the present.

The film was featured to great praise in Butt Magazine, and later won “best erotic film” at Good Vibrations’ Indie Erotic Film Competition.

Click below to watch a teaser for the film.

From time to time I will post new additions to this series (see below).

IN THEIR ROOM soundtrack

December 15th, 2009 · Uncategorized

record spin

Just before starting In Their Room I made a lengthy playlist of minimal synth, dirty disco tracks that I continued to listen to throughout the year. Because so much of it was dripping with sex I made it my unofficial soundtrack as I shot about two dozen men and a handful of women in their bedrooms. I’ve narrowed down about an hours worth of tracks here (out of six hours) for you to listen to as one mixed mp3 or individually.

There’s not a single track on here from 2009, but that’s okay, it feels like 2009 (via 1977, 1981, and 1983). Hello 2010!

Wanna Go Do Something Sometime?

April 30th, 2009 · Uncategorized

One of my greatest mix tape/CD accomplishments was Wanna Go Do Something Sometime? from June of 2001. In addition to being a mix you can listen to from beginning to end there’s a “feeling chart” to supplement the all-too-familiar narrative that goes along with each track.  You know the story: meet someone, fall in love too quickly, things get weird, resolution. Notice my narrative arc! I’ve included the CD inserts so everything I just said makes sense. Just click on them and they’ll pop up all big and legible. Music is below liner notes.

X-MIX-MASH

January 6th, 2009 · Uncategorized

I’ve heard that the best art is often made during the worst economic times. That’s positive reframing I can live with. I have noticed that there’s been a lot of good music coming out over the past couple of years. And in keeping in line with these ugly economic times, I’m passing off a great mix of music as your holiday gift ’08. Gone are the mix tape and the mix CD, everything’s online. I hope you like it!

YOUR X-MIX MASH OPTIONS

  1. listen to (and download to your itunes) a single 60 minute MP3 of all 17 tracks from the below PLAYLIST: X-Mix Mash
  2. You can listen to (and download to your itunes) the tracks individually. I wouldn’t normally put 4 songs from the same artist in one mix, but I’m still swooning over the Deerhunter record so deal. The whole album is good and I encourage people to buy it (along with the other music).
  3. You can ignore all of the above and just listen to this XMAS DISCO RECORD from 1977: SIDE A / SIDE B.

PLAYLIST
1. Bon Iver – Lump Sum

2. Department of Eagles – Sailing by Night
3. Madlib – Movie Finale
4. Deerhunter – Nothing Ever Happened
5. Crystal Castles – Crimewave
6. Future Conditional – Bright Lights Wandering
7. Blonde Redhead – 23
8. DJ Rupture – Baby Kites And Nokea
9. Arthur Russell – Janine
10. Deerhunter – Cover me Slowly
11. Deerhunter – Agoraphobia
12. Flying Lotus – Aunties Harp
13. Radiohead – Jigsaw Falling into Place
14. Asobi Seksu – Strings (Glass Factory Remix)
15. LCD Soundsystem – Big Ideas
16. Deerhunter – Saved by Old Times
17. Sun Kil Moon – Truckers Atlas

MacLife

January 3rd, 2009 · Uncategorized

I’m thrilled to be featured in the February issue of MacLife Magazine for my videography work. I’ve worked hard in the past year to get my work seen, so it’s exciting to see some free press materializing. If you’re not familiar with my work, I’m basically a one man show. I create mini-documentaries with a social justice angle that, in most cases, are researched, shot and edited by me alone. Please feel free to review my resume, my reel, and to peruse my site for any full-length pieces that you might find interesting.  If you like what I do send me a line. I’m continuing to work as a freelance videographer and am very open to new professional relationships. The full article from MacLife can be downloaded here.

Thanks to the generous staff at MacLife for providing all that valuable real estate!

Arty

November 2nd, 2008 · Uncategorized

I don’t know how this happened, but I got into an art show. The multi-talented smoke fetishist, Skye Thorstenson, took some footage I shot of suburban people casually exiting an exploding bus and made it into art! He’s calling the piece Amerika. That’s right, with a “k”. I’m sure it’s as stunning as it is disturbing.

There’s an opening reception this Friday, Dec 5 from 6-9pm. Come say hi and ask about our process!
