OMPHALOS is finished!

August 2nd, 2017

More soon, but suffice it to say, our ‘grand opus’ of eight-years’ toil (two in pre- and production, six in post) at last comes to a close. Poems, and films, are never finished, only abandoned, and the moment of completion is not binary, nor even linear, but I am calling August 2nd, 2017, the day we finished OMPHALOS. Can’t wait to share this movie with the world.

Back in LA + honest music

July 21st, 2017

Back in LA and Ojai, shooting a new EPK for Chris Murphy’s Teahouse Music Company. Good people, all—good, honest music.

Friends help friends

July 12th, 2017

Helping the good folks at Remedial out as an additional DP/gaffer on a spec fashion film. Lots of flowers, lots of flares.

Home stretch of the home stretch

July 4th, 2017

Home stretch of the home stretch for OMPHALOS: R3D conforms continue, dovetailing to last VFX fixes, credits, CC, and more of the punctilious fastidious. Almost there . . .

The apotheosis of every day routine

June 23rd, 2017

In New Jersey near the water, shooting a music video for our beloved sound designer, multi-instrumentalist, and autodidact Mr. Flannery—a dance-like piece dealing with the apotheosis of every days routine.

Percussive surfaces

June 21st, 2017

On a balmy spring day, I’m outdoors shooting a NAMM open-air recital, at once mellifluous and cacophonous contemporary/avant-garde music, high school kids using the sides of Soho buildings as percussive surfaces.

Pushing towards completion

June 15th, 2017

The fastidious conforming of s16mm .dpx sequences, an additional sound QC at Dungeon Beach, the commencement of the R3D conform (the majority of the shots), pushing towards completion, deep in various podcasts . . .

LA for MAC Cosmetics

June 10th, 2017

Our last leg: we shoot the Pride March, visit a number of non-profits/social justice orgs, eat macro. Loved this project. Will post when it’s live.

London for MAC Cosmetics

June 3rd, 2017

I’m in London with Remedial Media, shooting leg two of our MAC AIDS Fund campaign. A whirlwind tour of the city—punctuated by terrific culinary excursions—reveals less trammeled neighborhoods: a poetry slam, a home-cooked African meal, and a tessellation of small non-profit/social justice organizations doing good work.

OM conform continues

May 17th, 2017

The OMPHALOS conform continues apace throughout May: s16mm scans are secured via a complicated billing system of high-end tequila and untraceable cash; boxes of film are trucked from mid-town to a storage facility by the East River;  the VFX sequences from Portugal are uploaded; credits are re-hashed and reified; sound mix is screened at Hofstra and tweaked.
