This video belongs in my "The Conversation" series (,, and - but I wanted to freshen up the title. "Dream House" seemed more descriptive of the video since more of the Marx vintage doll house is featured in this short. This series of short films deals with a surreal conversation between miniature Marx vintage figures with sets that are Marx tin litho dollhouses. The story is implied - symbolic figures and juxtapositions allow the viewer to come to their own conclusions. Certainly the film noir influence is apparent and so inspiring for me.

Shot with a Canon 7D, Tokina 16-50mm f2.8 lens, Tokina 100mm macro f2.8 lens, Focus35 skater dolly, and always use my Zacuto Z-Finder Pro 3x! Edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4.

Also, so happy with my new Alzo 790L video light - worked wonders - no noise reduction necessary! The small light inside the bedroom window is actually my iPhone with a LED light flashlight app turned on - worked great and easy to get in small places. It even has a "strobe" effect that I used for the flashing light in the bedroom.

Note - added some of my own drawing elements - in a few pf the opening shots there is a tree in the foreground - that is actually a tree I drew and layered over the other video.
