    I was the Art Director on this job, which we shot in Miami. Finding all of the the Pink Flamingos turned out to be one hell of a mission. We had to have lots of them loaded with squibs from the Special Effects Dept for multiple takes. Of course, this was the year that they stopped making them in the US and we had to find where the last shipment was made, in order to buy 100 of them. They looked great when we blew up them up.

      This is another project I did with Rodney Ascher. It's a pilot for a show based on re-enactments of autobiographies written by famous people.

        Again, I was working with Neveldine/Taylor on this project, but it's a mash up of 3 different shoots, unfortunately. I did all the sections with all the partying LA people with the vintage low rider cars, which in this version is the majority of the spot. During my research for the job, I found a vintage Kentucky Fried Chicken 5 bucket chandelier (the buckets were translucent), and a vintage KFC kite. That was a great find. If you look above the dancing girls in the tree, you can spot the lit chandelier. The reason that I don't like the mash-up commercial is because there were so many detailed props that I created and are never seen. There were KFC skateboards, fake 'Andre the Giant has a Posse' stickers (Col. Sanders has an Army!), engraved metal car club plates, 5 vintage cars, etc. Oddly enough, I ran into my friend Sole, who was a principal actress on the shoot. Working around her made the job that much more enjoyable. She's the girl on the thumbnail for this commercial.

          Again, I was working with Neveldine/Taylor on this project, but it's a mash up of 3 different shoots, unfortunately. I did all the sections with all the partying LA people with the vintage low rider cars. There are two commercials, this being the minute long commercial. The second spot is mostly my work. During my research for the job, I found a vintage Kentucky Fried Chicken 5 bucket chandelier (the buckets were translucent), and a vintage KFC kite. That was a great find. Keep an eye out for the buckets in the tree above the dancing girls.

            I art directed two spots for this Food Network series. These spots were an excuse to throw a car commercial into their programming, kind of like an infomercial, at hummingbird speed. Feel the synergy!

                This is job I did for my friend Vince, while I was in LA. I love the actor's hair.

                  These spots were directed by my friend Vince. Vince is a great guy, but he never did understand the films that I made. I guess you can't win them all. My memory of this job includes burying a hose that connects to the sprinkler without disturbing the grass...and lots of fast food handling.

                    Head and Body is a series of shorts that MTV produced for Motorola's Korean market in 2005. This was before smart phones, but apparently, not only is (was?) Korea a leader in cell phone trends, they really loved watching video content on their cell phones. This was at a time when most Americans were beginning to use their phones for texting. I remember wondering about how odd it was that someone would want to watch videos on a phone. I art directed three videos for this series.

                      What are Tags?

                      Tags

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