With a crew of about 8, we managed to film this new music video for the very talented Tim Reid, Jr. in a single day. It was a lot of work, but having very capable people in charge of various necessary tasks definitely made this shoot very efficient and fun. Filmed in Santa Ana and Seal […]
For anyone who knows Matt Lytwynec, you probably know that he is infamous for writing songs about his friends. Not nice songs. Not loving songs about how great they are or how much he cares about them, but rather all the things he finds at fault with their personality, choices, physical attributes, etc. Matt is […]
So now that the album is finished, we need to submit it to iTunes and Amazon.com through Tunecore. This includes the album artwork. I put together 5 distinctly different covers which I thought could all work with the music.
I was hired by Roger Jansen, one of Chicago’s bigger names in band booking and promotion, to film and produce a promotional music video for one of his bands; Your Villain My Hero. This was filmed in what I call “douchebag ground zero” at Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville. Anyone who knows the city, knows what I’m

A short video illustrating accusatory angry customers on the phone. This was shot for Alpine Access who are my main client right now. It will be placed in Alpine’s training website for their soon-to-be at home operators.
I am so fucking pissed right now, I don’t even care if some government agency spiderbot sniffs out the words “I’m going to bomb….etc” and comes knocking on my door. I will tell them to “take a few steps back and literally fuck their own faces” (to quote Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder). I’ve had […]
Moving along towards my goal of eventually being able to film, edit and color treat low budget music videos for bands in the greater Chicago area, I’ve put together these little videos as an experiment. Shot and edited in two days in Chicago (just about 4 miles from home) these short videos were “color corrected” […]
I rode my bike down to Chinatown this afternoon and brought my camera. Spent some time in Ping Tom Park watching trains go over the elevating bridge and then at Chinatown Square where all the restaurants and stores sell things from the other side of the world.
