1. What started out as a photograph ended up being a video. This is the danger of being a filmmaker dad.

    It had rained all day, washing away my sons intricate chalk work from the day before. So he decided to see if he could write numbers all the way to 100 for the first time!

    He was so focused on his work and so proud of his new found talent, I decided to take a little video. And then my daughter joined to watch her brother and I filmed a bit more. Before you know it my son and I were racing around the driveway working on our separate projects. I just couldn't help but edit it together.

    This is for family and friends. Yeah, it's a bit lengthy for a kid drawing but I felt liberated to not be constrained by time as I usually do.

    Besides, what's a proud father to do? Shot before dinner and edited a short while after. Just for fun.

  2. A trailer for a short I made in college in 1999/2000. Based on the wonderful poem, "The Cremation of Sam McGee" by Robert Service.

    Filmed above 10,000 feet near Loveland Pass, Colorado. So cold and the snowdrift so deep. But a great crew and lots of fun.

    This went on to win some first place awards at festivals and official selection in about 10 festivals.

    Filmed on Super 16, but then unfortunately compressed to mini-dv for this version.

    My sister, Colleen McLaughlin, produced the movie.

    So many horrible editing mistakes in this cut- but I'll leave it the way it is for the memories and it's charm.
