Finally up is my own little space opera : a mesmerizing choregraphy evoking atoms, DNA, seeds, spirals, fractals, etc... inspired by Anaxagoras of Clazomenae. philosophy.gr/presocratics/anaxagoras.htm
The first draft screened in 2008 as a backdrop for the robotic and live music performance by URBAN ORCHESTRA at the city council new year celebration meeting critical acclaim.
This is the final director's cut with updated soundtrack and tighter edits to my original vision : 42000 HD frames at 50p running for 14 minutes.

Music i composed in 2005 for my first album called "Tales and Dreams" out in 2006. I worked on the video with Yannick Puig, a great 3D director. I only gave to him the details i wanted to see in the story of my song and he won the challenge alone.
Nicely rewarded 10 times in many huge film festivals, i'm proud to present you my first videoclip, allready 1.000.000 views on Youtube.
Here it is on Vimeo in better quality
FUTURE PROOF - SHORT FILM
FUTURE PROOF is a short film developed for the 2011 A/NZ PromaxBDA Conference. Essentially a labour of love for DMCI creative director Nathan Drabsch, this performance piece continues to be admired throughout the world.
The response to this emotive piece, still amazes us. Since launch FUTURE PROOF has been selected for various film and digital media festivals and showcases throughout the world.
The only boundary to the project was the theme of FUTURE PROOF. The development of the film started with an approach that aimed to focus not on futuristic notions but consideration of that which is timeless. People, the expression of self and the interactions between each other are timeless qualities relevant to creativity, no matter what the future holds.
The concept started quite fluidly, by briefing a variety of dancers, with individual performance styles, to develop choreography based on the concepts of growth, sharing, sending and receiving.
Directed by Nathan Drabsch, the performances were shot over one day using two RED Epic cameras, capturing the action at high speed. All design, editing and post production was done in-house by The DMCI team. We worked closely with composers and audio designers Mark Brandis & Jeff Black from ism studios, to create a unique score that perfectly compliments the performances.
As a whole, the focus is on the dancers as they create and interact with abstract forms in a vast unknown world. Their own movements determine the creation and final destruction of these elements. Their own paths of communication and creative expression have come full circle, and all that remains is the individual.

We set out to create a one of a kind public art experience, a projection mapping installation for multiple surfaces and multiple dimensions. Created by a hand picked team of artists with sponsorship by AT+T, Senovva, Light Harvest, and Leo Kuelbs.
Unfolding like an animated modern Botticelli painting, flowing above our heads and spreading outwards
in every direction, “As Above, So Below” immersed viewers in the architecture of the Manhattan Bridge. Audiences physically entered the story and explored the shimmering surface as it ignited with messages and symbols.
This originally conceived video mapping project was a challenge offered to a group of artists from varying backgrounds. Led by digital arts pioneers Farkas Fulop and Ryan Uzilevsky, with post production support by Sina Taherkhani, the group created a one-of-a-kind experience. Adding to the fun were Artists Simon Anaya, John Parker, Richard Jochum and Johnny Moreno. The final projection utilized over 25,000 square feet of architectural canvas, and ultimately won "Best In Show" at the Dumbo Arts Festival.
This production tested every technique in image-making conceivable in the short time frame, including stop motion animation, and the suspension of over twenty performance artists from fly wires at sixteen feet off the ground.
Leo Kuelb is responsible for securing the site and bringing the original team together. He also put together a great international video art showcase between screenings of "As Above, So Below."

12,500+ photographs, 3,000+ miles driving, 250 miles hiked, and 500 hours later, I am very happy to present to you, Light Of The Night. A short film capturing just a small sample of the beautiful New England star filled landscapes. Putting this short film together has been one of the most incredible journeys I've yet to embark on. Traveling from place to place, hiking hundreds of miles of New England's trail systems, meeting a an awesome bunch of other photographers along the way, the lovely and unpredictable New England weather, and last but not least spending so much time under the stars, are the memories that I will remember for a life time.
I couldn't thank my friends enough for being a part of this project in one way or another! Whether it was hanging out while shooting photos, hiking out to spots, taking long drives from place to place, answering technical questions, putting up with me sitting at the computer every day for a month straight, you have all helped out so much!
