The stuff that doesn't fit. Live projections, stopmotion films, weird fiction shorts, bizarre one-offs.

We were asked by the crazy talented folks over at Work/Order to create an hour of visuals for a Daniel Lanois - Venetian Snares show at Day For Night. We had 72 hours to make something. Hard deadlines always help the creative process.
This was the first fiction short I really ever made, and I think it was the first film I ever officially screened at a festival. Somehow Mark Elijah Rosenberg got a hold of it and he showed it at Rooftop Films. Thanks, Mark.
I made a short film for True/False back in 2011. Limitations, like deadlines, are super helpful in making things.
This was the very first stop motion film I created using early digital still cameras. It got the attention of the Sundance Channel, and eventually Beck, who asked me to make a music video for him. Weirdly, this odd little movie is how I started making music videos. That's me on the Wurlitzer.
Another digital stopmo short, this one a little more ambitious. I spent a lot of time looking at David Hockney's photo collages and I wanted to see if I could recreate that feeling, but in motion. The result is this strange creature.
