The Dan Ellis Project: A Documentary Work-In-Progress

  1. 3 worst letters of the alphabet: ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease)

    3 creative letters of the alphabet: ART

    3 inspirational letters of the alphabet : DAN

    In 2010, Dan Ellis, the owner of a successful printing company, was stricken with ALS and "locked in"-unable to move or speak-but still the same man within his mind and heart.

    Dan turned to artistic expression and to his thirteen year old daughter Gina. Dan and Gina began painting and they found joy collaborating, Gina as his hands and an eye-gaze machine as Dan's voice.

    An inspirational film that shows the truth of the disease but not the defeat; the strength of family; and the power of courage, faith and art.

  2. The setting was already intriguing. A Greek from Pontus, living in Athens is a luthier of some of the best Spanish guitars. His name is Vassilis and he is not only an accomplished luthier but also a charming human. We spend 3 days with him in his small and packed lab in Athens, where we learned a lot, laughed a lot and in general had a great time. The end result combined with the music of Edstard left everyone more than satisfied.

  4. Every frame in this video is a photograph taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
    I created this timelapse on a long weekend after discovering the image library online. I used Photoshop and Sony Vegas to edit and compile the footage.
    The music is a track from one of my favorite sci-fi movies, Sunshine. I thought the music and imagery would fit well together.
