Currently working on a series of video "sketches": short experimental films to explore ideas and techniques as well as to practice getting my brain to think in moving images rather than the stillness of photos.

The first up is P H E N O D R O M E with Nickie Jean​ in a hypnotic, drug-induced dreamstate.

"The Stars are Blackest at Night" is finally available to watch online!

Check it out here: https://vimeo.com/282124442

This Cthulhu-inspired short film was written, produced and directed by Darren Eskandari and myself over the course of 72 hours for the annual "HP Lovecraft Under the Gun 72 Hour Film Contest" held in Portland, OR each year.

This is a new version of the film that I took the time to re-edit, re-color and have re-scored over the past few months.

Meghan Chadeayne handled additional scriptwriting and helped put all these words into our characters' mouths.

Justin Paul was our incredible Cinematographer and edited it along with Misha Syeed. Jake Golden pulled focus like a mad man. Mike L. Taylor dominated the 2nd Unit with some incredible footage and B-Camera work.

Bryan Stage scored the project, with Nikk Dibs handling our end credits music and Ben Kamm handling most of our on-set sound with an assist from Alexis Ettner.

Geoff Flint killed it with some amazing production design with an assist by Baja Charlie and Jeff Hebron.

Missy Munster provided wardrobe and lots and lots of blood. Laney Chantal gave us some incredible creatures to play with.

The film stars Amanda Sugar Jones, Carissa White, Laura Wrong and Tracy Lynn with appearances by Cheyenne Holman, Kelton Jones, Meghan Chadeayne, D'artagnan Mattaliano, Ashley Lane, Rosie Neuharth, Drew Johnston, Brynn Route, Morgan Kwok, Alexis Ettner and guest-starring Pete Carter and Violet Lux as the creatures.

"The Stars are Blackest at Night" was shot on location in Palmdale, CA and downtown LA at Arqade Studios.

Here's a more fashion-styled shot of my swoon-worthy client Alexx Calise from our portrait and headshot shoot last week.

Amanda Sugar Jones wanted to do some pin-up shots that other night while we were playing with some beauty portraits.

I'm not really a pin-up kinda guy, even though I spent a lot of time around that culture while I was married to a pin-up photographer in the early 00's, so while it wasn't necessarily in my wheelhouse, I like how these turned out.

The fabulous Miss Amanda Sugar Jones came by the studio last night for some new shots. We tried to focus on doing more commercial looking work together, and I'm pretty happy with the results!
