  3. A music video about waking up from a dream and ending up in New York City, scared and overwhelmed. My first concept included a beach and a white horse running up out of the subway but with time and a realistic budget...I settled on this. I took all of the photos for the piece. It was fun shooting on 34th street and the actor was awesome! We used a blow up mattress for the bed, that we also used in a karate film and slid down a hill with in Central Park. Good times. I love Paul Oakenfold's "Southern Sun" which underscores the piece.

  4. Another assignment for the New York Film Academy. It was inspired by a true story of a fatherless daughter growing up with no direction, seeking someone similar to who she remembered as a child and making mistakes that proved to be fatal. It features of my favorite songs by Lamb, "Gabriel." Oh yeah and the back of my head has a cameo appearance.

  5. This was a color 16mm workshop where I chose to shoot one of the scenes from my thesis. It was a practice run but I loved the colors of Chinatown and couldn't resist shooting there.
