1. I spent two months living in Joshua Tree following artist Tom Jean Webb as he prepared for his solo show 'Tomorrow's Flames Are Already Burning' at the DEN Gallery in Austin, Texas in early 2015. Influenced from the surrounding landscape, this film represents some of the inspiration behind his exhibition.

    Special thanks to Dan & Kate O'Connell for letting me use their camera and allowing us stay at their house in Joshua Tree for a few hot wintry desert months, Heather Williamson for her help and the generous time of everyone involved in creating this.

    I asked the coyote if he was afraid
    On the sun baked highway run
    His creeping shadow grew
    And darkened the falling sun

    Who lit the flame
    Asks the man each night
    That the wind couldnt put out
    When the sun burned its last light

    Amongst the cactus trees
    Time struggles in the sand
    With no soil for seeds
    But the snakes rattling hand

    Meet me in the highway
    Under the silver moon
    You'll hear the trembling bones
    Of the dead mans croon

    And the ground shakes and howls
    As the sun comes back around
    The coyote lies quick still
    As his shadow shrinks back down

    Now he walks alone
    And wanders if he was afraid
    Towards the silent warmth of light
    Amongst the desert decay

  2. After towing the boat from Kansas City, MO to Seattle, WA, we spent a couple weeks sailing through the San Juan Islands up to Vancouver, BC and shot some footage along the way.
