Starset "Halo" Video

Recently, I was hired to assist the band Starset in creating a music video narrative for their new single "Halo" With virtually no time for preproduction, we hit the ground running on this, assembled a team and shot off into the desert of Utah to begin shooting. A 30 hour journey non stop into darkness. We camped in tents in the rocky hills just over the bonneville raceway in 14 degree weather. No civilization in site. We shot all day every day sun up to sun down and later, we drank beers by the fire to stay warm. We ate dehydrated food packages like spacemen. I took a dump in a thorny bush. We had the benefit of one shower at a hostel style privately owned truck stop with attached diner. A giant mexican lady gave us towels and took us down the poorly lit hallway to our stalls. The showers were warm. She was gentle. I could not complain. 

Understaffed, exhausted, covered in salt, sometimes snow  our team truly lived the experience of the story's main character "Thomas" as he traveled across the surface of a martian planet. 

Maroon 5 - Honda Civic Tour

 For the past month I have been working with my good friends in Good Theory on the LED wall content for Maroon 5's 2013 Tour. I started with a bit of work in Columbus, previs and style frames.


connection in Houston

The first stop was Chaos Visual in Burbank, CA. Where we spent several weeks of long hours in a non air-conditioned warehouse with at least 8 box fans blowing on our open mac pro towers to keep them cool while rendering. The render Farm got to live in the upstairs air-conditioned office. Lucky render farm..

Scott J Salon "Salon Promo 2012"

This was a quick promotion video we built for Scott J Salon. Upon returning from NYC from the terminal 5 event, we went directly into this project with the goal of finishing it before christmas! The 3d elements were created in Maxon C4d, and composited with Aftereffects.  Our goal was to create a world that housed the clients variety of fashion and hair photo-shoots in a clean crisp container while maintaining the salon's brand values. The video was produced by two artists over a five day timeline. 

HP Windows 8 Launch Party NYC

On October 24 Hewlett Packard hosted a private party, called The Sound of Touch, at Terminal 5 in New York City to highlight their latest touch-screen laptops and other devices. The party included hip-hop electronic group Far East Movement and Grammy music blogger Arjan Writes.

Playing a crucial role to the event was the development of interactive video content to demonstrate the ease-of-use and seamless artistry of the latest Windows 8 OS running on HP products. Wellcan Still & Motion Media was hired by Infinity Marketing to handle this job.  We were also given the opportunity to fly in some very familiar faces to the Wellcan team to help us make this project a success.

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. Thank you so much for all of your help with this project. You have truly been a pleasure to work with.

The team also produced original cues for the Far East Movement hits Rocketeer and Like a G6, displayed onscreen behind the performers during their live show at the event.  The results were a hit.

We’re very proud of this project, and we’re happy to add it to our list of accomplishments.

As we reached the end of the deadline Corbin, Miguel, and Trevor went out to the gun range to relieve some pressure.
