OM sound nearly complete

December 21st, 2016

After a last-work-week-of-the-year push, sound design nearly complete for OM. January 2017 launches final sound mix. The film is precipitously close to total completion.

Yamaha undisclosed

December 13th, 2016

A week-long shoot for Yamaha, interviewing some (undisclosed as per NDA) luminaries in the jazz and Broadway world.

OMPHALOS music opus complete

December 5th, 2016

OMPHALOS score is finally mixed and mastered with the kind and gifted Mike Flannery at the helm. Grateful for rich week of creative collaboration, and to finally put this commodious opus to bed.

Risible send-off to ‘worst year ever’

November 30th, 2016

Shooting for the illustrious Alex Coletti and Co., DP-ing the ENG portion of a Christmas special for Tony Hale, with special guests Lisa Loeb and Judah Friedlander. A risible send-off to the ‘worst year ever in human history’ (2016).

Zeno’s Paradox and the determination of a glacier

November 22nd, 2016

Like Zeno’s Paradox, approaching an ending with OM proves elusive, but make no mistake: progress is being made. Crossing the finish line glacially, but crossing it, I check Act 2 pII of the sound design off the list.

The winding road

November 19th, 2016

Four days shooting with my revered mentor and friend Mike Elliot. We team-up on a project for TBWA-Chiat about SMS pedestrian safety. A long drive to Maryland sustains our circumlocutory talks (children, magic, the elusiveness of narrative in one’s own life and in art, THE LAST WALTZ).

In the dark times

November 11th, 2016

Post election, DP-ing this piece affirming love, tolerance, and the now-imperiled so-called ‘other’ seemed the only embrocation. “In the dark times, will there also be singing? Yes, there will be singing. About the dark times.’ —Bertolt Brecht. Link also (though beleaguered by trolls) here.

I hope you’re keeping some kind of record (Leonard)

November 10th, 2016

New York is cold / but I like where I’m living / there’s music on Clinton street all through the evening / I hear that you’re building your little house / deep in the desert / you’re living for nothing now / I hope you’re keeping some kind of record

Here’s to planetary rebirth

November 8th, 2016

Another demo for new cinema-musical completed, and sharing it seemed apt on election day. Here’s to rebirth, to love, and to the healing of wounds for the country and the planet. In the film, two lovers are trying to finish what they started together—a project of planetary rebirth. One has been mortally wounded, and the other is trying to convince her to go on fighting anyway.

Travis Wall fights back

November 3rd, 2016

Honored to have DP-ed this piece for MTVNews.com, featuring “So You Think You Can Dance” alum Travis Wall’s magnificent and boundary-shattering choreography.  Even prouder to have helped undergird a pro-LGBTQ rights message steps from the bigotry and homophobia of Trump tower. Shot just days before the election.
