A lovely evening on the water with my band, The Pacific Madrone.

I recorded and mixed the audio. Chris Jespersen shot and edited the video.

Questions for Mary | Music Video

Here's a new music video made over the past couple of weeks for Carlo Furlan at Hillcrest Chapel. He's using it to promote a cohesive identity for the artists at Hillcrest. They released a compilation album of music this fall and decided that a music video was the next step in promoting the movement.

Happy to oblige.

You can buy the album here.

One fun part of this project was finally getting to experiment with a few things that had been on my mind for a while... super widescreen (2.35:1 cinemascope) with no letterboxing, pan and scan to improve static shots in post, and 60fps to 15fps slow motion.

Same Day Edit

I can't say enough nice things about my cinema team. They're rockstars. And together we made this wedding film in time to show it at the wedding. That's right. Folks sat down to eat, they heard a couple speeches, got a slice of cake and then BAM! We showed the wedding film. So fun.

Alan Hussey brought this project to me and we had a good time making this together.

This little champ lives in the design studio and I don't mean Mike (aka Alan.) The Vandercook 219 is a beautiful peice of machinery.

I Saw the Light

Here's a little somthin' somthin' from church last night. I love the burst of applause when Jeff Flint pulls out the banjo before the song. Oh, and the yollering throughout.
