music videos:

I have been producing and developing a new publishing outlet called Novel Concept TV. Head over to that page to see the latest developments and all my music videos!


Moments Till Fall playing "Here We Are" from their album "Heart of Helen" out on Turkey Vulture Records. Additional FX were done by Neil Barrett. Starring Charmaine Lewis and Erika Jane.

I shot everyone seperately and composited them in 3D space. I used a virtual camera for movement as an alternative to tracking motion for each shot. Behind the scenes here: http://youtu.be/ApTW5_mqqx4

Duties:

  • Directing
  • Concept/Storyboarding
  • Shooting/Lighting
  • Editing
  • Compositing







Amanda Shires is a rising star from the dirt city. You can see her in Sony Pictures' "Country Strong" as Gwyneth Paltrow's fiddle player. Her new album "Carrying Lightning" came out a month and a half after this was shot, but she decided to release it to her friends in her hometown a bit early. Only had one camera, and half of an extra take for the close-ups (only got a couple of bars before she was dragged off for more pictures and autographs). Took a stereo feed off the mixer and used my Zoom h4n stereo mic for an ambient track.

Duties:

  • Directing (the half take)
  • Shooting
  • Editing







A storyline based music video I did for New Mexico based metal band Kryoburn. I story boarded the heck out of this thing. Starring Branden Waits, I shot each scene in about an hour on average, and spent about three hours shooting the band. I also had alot of friends help me fill out the roles. Big thanks to them!

The song "Broken Hero" is off of Kryoburn's new album Three Years Eclipsed out now on Candlelight Records.

Duties:

  • Directing
  • Concept/Storyboarding
  • Shooting
  • Editing

Another storyline based music video I did for The Dead See for the song "Sheol" off the album "Year Of The Funeral". I co-directed the actors for a short with my friend Cody Fisher, then I directed the band shots a few months later in the same location.

Duties:

  • Concept/Story Boarding
  • Directing/lighting

Moments Till Fall out of Amarillo are attempting to break out. They have recently landed rotation on over 200 radio stations including sattelite radio! They had this awesome location and asked if I could put something together for them. "Conscience Makes Cowards" was full of pulsing fast rhythms, and I tried to put movement on just about every note. Lots of little cuts in this one.

Duties:

  • Directing
  • Shooting
  • Editing










Lauren Spanglerhas a powerful voice. The TTU School of Music student needed an entry video for the world renowned Operalia competition, and I humbly obliged. I kept the production simple, to keep the focus on this bright young student's talent. This is not my first opera, but definitely my first opera music video!

Duties:

  • Directing
  • Shooting
  • Editing






Here is a music video I did for For The Suffering. I lost one of my generators on this shoot, and had to use less light than I wanted, so I shot most of it pretty tight. Didn't get all the wide environment shots I was planning on, but i think the end result came off pretty awesome nonetheless. The really pressing challenge was figuring out how to close caption this thing. Learned more about line 21 than I ever needed to.
