    This is the opening video for the 2014 Made in NY Awards, which were held on November 10th and hosted by Mayor Bill de Blasio. It features Louis C.K., Neil Patrick Harris, Albert Maysles, Rosie Perez, Jane Raab, Stanley Nelson, Huge and the PGA Women's Alliance. Steve Buscemi was unavailable, so I used a clip of him. For the 4th year in a row, I created all of the honoree videos. Because of an expedited schedule this year, I literally had 2 days to put this video together before its premiere: The final interview was shot on Friday afternoon, and the edit was approved on Sunday afternoon. In between, I had to shoot all of the b-roll, cut the piece and also score it. The color was done Sunday night. The video features one shot that my friend Eva Hill contributed, and the end graphics were done by Roland Le Breton at NYC Media.

      “Learning to Like It” is a pure DIY piece of filmmaking. I directed, photographed, edited, scored, colored, composited and even starred in it. When I’m in front of the camera, nobody’s behind the camera. It was shot predominantly in 4k using the Blackmagic Production Camera, with the remainder captured by the Pocket Camera in HD. Post-production was done at 1080p.

                Last fall, while attending the NY Film Festival, I was invited to shoot Tilda Swinton after a screening of Jim Jarmusch’s "Only Lovers Left Alive." It occurred to me that she might be game for something unconventional. And she most definitely was. **** Camera: Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera, 2.5k RAW, ProRes 422 post conversion Lens: Canon 16-35mm f/2.8, ASA1600 Color: DaVinci Resolve 10 Lite Edit: Adobe Premiere CC Titles: Adobe Photoshop CC

                  "NYFF51" is a pure DIY endeavor. I directed, photographed, edited, scored, composited, graded and starred in it. Whenever I'm in front of the camera, nobody's behind the camera. This was created for Filmmaker Magazine, in part, as a test of the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera. The written review is here: http://filmmakermagazine.com/76834-the-blackmagic-design-cinema-camera-a-review/ Keep an eye out for appearances by Tom Hanks, the Coen Brothers, Robert Redford, Rooney Mara, Spike Jonze, Tilda Swinton, Jim Jarmusch, John Goodman, Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Joaquin Phoenix, Steve McQueen, Alexander Payne, Sean Penn, Bruce Dern, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde and many more. And yes, that really is Bill Clinton. I have a long history with the New York Film Festival. My first-ever web series from 2004 was shot there in much the same manner as this -- with me starring in my own shorts.

                    On July 10th, I got to hang out and shoot some behind-the-scenes footage at the set of Jay Z's "Picasso Baby." "Backstage Baby" is the result. Intercut with scenes of the crew preparing and the audience waiting in line, you'll spot fleeting appearances by Marina Abramović, Judd Apatow, Alan Cumming, Jim Jarmusch, Taraji P. Henson, director Mark Romanek -- and, of course, Jay Z. This was a really cool project for me, because I grew up watching MTV and absorbed a lot of what Romanek, as well as David Fincher, Spike Jonze, Chris Cunningham and the other great '90s video directors were up to. "Backstage Baby" was a total DIY production. I served as director, photographer, editor and composer.

                      Lincoln Center hosted my first ever retrospective screening on 12/4/12. This is the Q&A that followed, moderated by Filmmaker Magazine's Scott Macaulay (producer of Gummo and Raising Victor Vargas). It came out pretty good. I'm surprisingly coherent.

                      Tags

                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
