1. This was a Christmas parade where vintage airplanes flew overhead. All audio from the footage was removed and replaced with the same audio but with all components reproduced using only a bass guitar and upright bass.

  3. This Film is an Adaptation of Howl by Allen Ginsberg and a tribute to The Beats of the fifties. Using all found footage, most from the fifties, and jazz from the time-period to capture The Beats. I wanted to show all of the elements that were influencing The Beats: from conformity and McCarthyism to Pollock (the paint dripped on the commercials) all set in the streets of San Francisco.

  4. The project took the literal meaning of the Olympic Symbol and incorporated the Mandorla. Since each ring represents a continent, video footage of some sort of nonviolent protest taking place on that continent was inserted in the ring. What the actions in the videos are linked to—through the Mandorla Symbol's meaning—is the "spirit" of the Olympic Games.
    There is no shortage of opinions about the role of the Olympic Games in the role of global unity. While the games in reality may not be the messengers of peace that they so tirelessly proclaim, the symbol of the rings are, at least in theory, based on the notion of world peace. That countries can compete not for a prize, but rather the title (for lack of a better word) of competing honorably: to win is to be an honorable competitor, but not necessarily the most athletic.

  5. This is the lost music video. Animation was done in Flash. I like working with 2d rather than 3d animation.
