  2. While the Sunset over the Sunset District, SF, I grabbed my room mate Rob Cox and made him perform on our balcony. We made this video pretty fast, with only two takes.

  3. This is a meditation on the meaning of truth, and as to whether the human intellect can obtain it. Compiling various shots it follows a character as he ponders these things under an existential crushing weight that he feels upon his soul. This short is designed to follow the thought process; rather than follow a traditional story.

    Inspired by the work of Terrence Malick, mainly the Tree of Life, and Chris Marker's San Soleil.

    Shot at SFSU's library, Golden Gate Park, and Downtown SF at the Embarcadero.

    It was shot on 16mm color film on two different Bolex camera's.

    Thanks to Chris Diaz for helping me film some of the scenes.

    It was shot for Cine 310 at SF State.

    The religious chants came from Sound Miner, as well as all the sound effects. Sound Miner was donated to SF State giving students sound effects and a few songs for royalty free use.

  4. This scene was made for my Narrative Directing class final. I had to direct two actors through a prewritten scene from someone else. I chose to use Graham Greene's script from Carol Reed's film The Third Man.

    Paul Hester is Harry Lime and Jacob Frye is Holly Martins. Jarrett Hendicks was my Production Sound Mixer.

    I was given permission to use music by Moby from his generous organisation Moby Gratis. The songs used are Isolate(Ambient) and Slow Light2(Ambient).
