GHOST OF A SABER TOOTH TIGER - ANIMALS

My video is for the psych rock band GOASTT (Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl). Shot on 35mm, it has a llama, UFOs, and lots of nudity. Also it won the BEST MUSIC VIDEO award at the 2014 Louisiana International Film Festival. The director's cut can be seen here.

THEORY OF A DEADMAN & ALICE COOPER- SAVAGES

Another video for ATLANTIC RECORD'S band THEORY OF A DEADMAN. It is a bit like Lord of the Flies set in a dystopian future with a heretical preacher and Alice Cooper. What more could you want?

WANNABE - ANIMATED MUSIC VIDEO
THEORY OF A DEADMAN - ANGEL

My first fully hand drawn animated music video. Think of it as SCHOOL HOUSE PUNK ROCK.

Our latest video for ATLANTIC RECORD'S band THEORY OF A DEADMAN. It is a simple concept, but shot beautifully with anamorphic lenses and a dream VFX pass. 

THE CHILD - THE PRESIDENT

The Child's debut video for label Manimal Vinyl. We built our own lighting rig from scratch for this one and employed a number of cool in-camera tricks to match the angular sound of the song. 

THEORY OF A DEADMAN - DROWN

New video for ATLANTIC RECORD'S band THEORY OF A DEADMAN. Old time religion meets Shirley Jackson's THE LOTTERY. A little grim and a little beautiful.

BLUES TRAVELER - YOU DON'T HAVE TO LOVE ME

This is Blues Traveler's first music video from their first studio album in nearly a decade. From a treatment by Bill Fishman.

AVICII VS LENNY KRAVITZ - SUPERLOVE

Lenny Kravitz joins up with EDM artist Avicii. It's sort of like Napoleon Dynamite on DMT. The video currently has over 10 million views on YouTube after debuting on Spinner and MTV.COM internationally.

AT THE SKYLINES - THE AMAZING ATOM

THE SWORD - CLOAK OF FEATHERS

An entirely animated lyric video created for Warner Bros./Roadrunner Records' hardcore band At the Skylines. Riffing on the song's title, "The Amazing Atom," I tried to evoke the atomic energy education films of the 1950s.

Our latest video for Austin's bad ass stoner metal band The Sword is equal parts Frank Frazetta, acid western, and 70's rock n roll freak out.

POD - BEAUTIFUL (DIRECTOR'S CUT)

SUPER BLACK MARKET - I WON'T FORGET YOU

Narrative only cut of BEAUTIFUL for POD. The official label cut also features band performance,

This is a zombie-themed, gore-drenched love story video for Super Black Market.  We squeezed a lot into two days of shooting (and left a lot of bodies in our wake).

CO-PILOT EFFECT - D11

TINA GUO - QUEEN BEE

An entirely stop motion animated video for the now defunct Scottish band Co-pilot Effect. I am a long time fan of stop motion and this was my first attempt at it.

JACK DEAN - 27

This video for the acoustic pop duo from the midwest was commissioned on a Sunday to be shot on the following Tuesday. Despite the tight schedule it turned out great.

Classical/metal crossover video for Tina Guo (Cirque du Soleil). This won best music video at the 2011 Downtown Film Festival - Los Angeles and was nominated for a Hollywood Music In Media award.

AT THE SKYLINES - TURBULENCE

A second video for Warner Bros./Roadrunner Records hardcore band At the Skylines. This is a performance video filled with Illuminati references and aerial shots captured with a remote-controlled helicopter camera.
