Very proud to have shot & edited the video for Amanda Palmer's kickstarter, which has made over ONE MILLION DOLLARS and still climbing...
At the tail end of last year I had a blast shooting this raucous and debaucherous music video for the Brothers Grim track 'On The Meter'. There is no truth to the rumours of an 'uncut' version of this video, none what so ever...

Last year was so very full, a wonderful time of travel, romance, new people, and inspiration, mixed with long stretches of being a good art hermit locked in my studio cave working.
The wonderful music of Kim Boekbinder creates such evocative imagery, both haunting and sparkly, that it was a real pleasure to work with her on shooting these music videos. We have more videos currently in progress, but in the meantime here are the two that have been released so far.
The music video I directed for the Barons of Tang is finally finished, and was launched at the Stucco Cooperative in Sydney last week in conjunction with the BoHo Ball's tour of debauchery and merriment. As I am in New York currently, I missed out on being present in person, but am happy to hear that the night was a huge success, supported by many other amazing acts from the vaudeville underground and topped by a typically riotous performance by the Barons themselves.
