BKB's "Hiatus: 612" film

See video here:  Hiatus: 612

Bare Knuckle Brigade (BKB) is more than just a clothing brand. It is a mindset. If you value working till you have blisters, taking the difficult route, and tireless drive in all you do, then you can identify with this company.

We created this piece as an action-packed "lookbook" to showcase some of the clothing offerings of the brand.

Big thanks as always to my talented and hardworking crew!

Bryce's Story "The Thing I Wish for the Most"

Bryce's Story "The Thing I Wish for the Most"

Bryce_room Fairly often I get asked to do "free" work. We call it "Spec" in the business. Sometimes it's another industry member wanting to combine skills and make something purely for fun, and other times it's someone wanting for free what they cannot afford. So, obviously, my reactions will vary.

A local company (MicroGigantic) called one day asking me to make a free film for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. My first thought was - wow, both of these companies have way more money than me--why am I being asked to work for free?! But I decided to at least hear them out. After a short conversation, I was hooked so hard that I was instantly excited and ready to start shooting. Turns out I have a soft spot for little boys in need, and the MDA had a real charmer for me to film.

Watch the film and you'll know why I HAD to shoot this piece. Little did I know that a phone call asking me to give a small chunk of my time would end up blessing me so richly with the chance to spend an entire day with an amazing little boy.

United Health: short humorous spots

This summer I teamed with local agency Periscope, Director Jeremy Ryan Carr and a bunch of talented folks to create several short, humorous spots for United Health Group. Below is a link to the first of the two.

Working with child talent is always interesting -- in the best way. The things that come out of their mouths are simply hilarious! I hope you'll get a kick out of these. We certainly had a lot of fun making them.

Target: Danielle Evans - Marmalade Bleue

MarmaladeBleu_1

Several weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with Danielle Evans of "Marmalade Bleue". Danielle is a Columbus, Ohio-based designer and letterer, and one who has a special niche' of working with food. Target brought her to Minneapolis to create several pieces of work to promote grocery sales in their Canadian stores. I was hired to film her processes for this short documentary-style piece: Danielle Evans and Food For Thought

3 Things I was most impressed about while filming Danielle: 1) She uses her hands almost exclusively - no tool kits, measuring devices, etc. 2) She does not sketch the piece first, she just pours out some food and jumps into creating it 3) She is as humble and nice as she is talented. I wish all my subjects were as great as Danielle!

Almanzo 100: Film

ALM_04

  As you might have noticed, I am pretty passionate about cycling.  This film story was something that my partner at Royal Antler (Tony Franklin) and I knew that we had to tell.  So months of work and collaborations with other talented industry friends eventually resulted in the film you see here.  For more information on the race go here: Almanzo100  And go here: for more films by Royal Antler.

Stubborn Mule Adventure Race - latest Film

Screen Shot 2012-08-18 at 8.53.01 AM

The last film for Yakima Racks in a series of five is live on GearJunkie.com.  We traveled the US from California to Wisconsin to shoot this series.  This final film was a 30 hour (!) adventure race.  I shadowed team GearJunkie/Wadali to show the race from the inside.

Spoiler alert - they won.  Well done, guys.  Hope the rest of you can enjoy living vicariously through them in this short flm.
