A collection of videos I create, as well as some of my pictures and other projects I'm working on.
What I’ve been working on over the past year.

Ill Poetic- “Gone”
A music video I directed in association with David Damen of Arris Productions for Cincinnati artist Ill Poetic. This was a crazy process, but we were happy with the end result.
My friend Khanh recently put together a number of custom jackets for a Gallery Hop event at Sole Classics here in Columbus. Here’s a short promo I put together for it.
A music video I shot for LxE For the Uncool for his mixtape The Monsters Are Due On Maple St.

My most recent demo reel, as of Spring 2011.
A quick look at my senior project at UC: P. Sneez: The Life and Death of Hans Von Poppelscratch- a 25 minute short film about a kid from Iowa who dreams of making it in the rap game. I’d describe it as a offbeat comedy/ hip-hop musical- it has all original music and a very unique style.
Here’s the official description: “P. Sneez is the story of Pete Sneez and his brother Brian, who struggle amidst a mundane Midwestern existence to overcome their awkward allergic afflictions and express their inner turmoil through the art of music. Their identity quest serves as a reminderthat there is a little P. in all of us…”
We premiered this in June at the Electronic Media Senior Showcase to an audience of about 250 people, and have been submitting it to regional film festivals since. I was the lead editor on this project, and also helped to write and produce, as well as numerous crew/misc. duties.
Me and buddy Bert teamed up for this entry for Stone Throw’s Video Contest. We threw this together in 2 days, enjoy.
There were a lot of pretty awesome entries- check this out: http://www.stonesthrow.com/news/2011/06/jdilla-last-donut-of-the-night-video
Remembering 1970: The peaceful protests that closed the University of Cincinnati
A short documentary I produced for UC Magazine- the University’s alumni publication. We talked to numerous 1970 grads about the era and also dug up a ton of archival newspapers, photos, and videos.
In 1970, many UC seniors missed their graduation after going home early because the University closed briefly in the spring.
In the spring of 2010, on their 40 year anniversary, UC invited these grads back to finally have the chance to walk at a graduation. This video was done in collaboration with that effort.
Fee Fi Fo Fum
A quick video for The Insane Warrior’s (RJD2) video contest.
RJ asked fans to create something to go along with one of the songs from the album and submit it to his website.
My friend Joey Thomas and I decided the one and only Tom Netherton was just the star we needed for this. The story involves blind dates, coke binges, and redemption- check it out.
We ended up winning 1st place for this. Check out the album and contest at wearethedoorways.com
