Finding Portland was produced, shot, and edited in 51 days during March and April at the invitation of TEDx Portland, where the video was unveiled to a sell out crowd of 650 and met with a standing ovation. Filmed in Portland and the Columbia Gorge, this time-lapse piece offers a new perspective to the City of Roses. From a Portland Timbers season opening soccer game, to the top of the Fremont Bridge, to an aerial shot of Oneonta Gorge, Finding Portland tells the story of a city and its many faces.
Comprised of 308, 829 photographs taken from over 50 unique locations, it took an average of 3.8 hours to make each second of this film. The intent of the project was to place our cameras in unique locations across the city, achieve significant ranges of dynamic camera motion, and pursue cutting edge time-lapse techniques.

The entire TEDx Portland presentation of Finding Portland by John Waller and Ben Canales will be online in May at tedxportland.com

JUNO award winning Music Video!! Thanks to The Sadies!
A new show I'm working on called Triptank premieres April 2 on Comedy Central after Tosh.0. Check it out!
Rumbleseat is an animated short film based on the music of The Sadies set in a world created by animator and director Mike Roberts. Based on classic westerns and rockabilly culture, the film centers around a young man who finds himself in the back of a hot rod occupied by four sinister ghouls. From the Rumbleseat of their car, he journeys through moments of his life and realizes he must make peace with what heʼs left behind and find insight as to what has led him to this strange world.
