Amanda F-ing Palmer

If you know anything about Amanda Palmer, you know she's a badass rock star. I got to shoot a couple of pretty spontaneous videos (with Nights in Ultraviolet creator Matt Cook) of her and the band for Gothamist at the South Street Seaport Museum. In other words, front row seats with only about 5 people in the audience! Check 'em out!

Just another day at the farm

Collaborating on this shoot for the Growing Chefs program at Eagle Street Rooftop Farm was loads of fun! Set to the song Utopia by Yacht, the concept was to show the little ones in a perfect place where they learn about connecting food with the environment. Thanks to the Goddamn Cobras collective for making it happen.

Premier of Nights in UltraViolet

A tight-knit crew from my friends at The Goddamn Cobras and The Cheap Thriller put their brains together to create the 10-episode web series called Nights in UltraViolet. I was honored with the role of Director of Photography. The show stars a bunch of up-and-coming comedians that are making headlines. Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, for example, are currently working with Amy Poehler to produce their show called “Broad City.”  Creators of NiUV recently won best animation at the NYTVF for their project, “Cafe Bloodbath”. And comedian Rob Michael Hugel won the audience award at the NYTVF for his show, “I Hate Being Single.”  Follow the weirdness if you dare. To help promote the show I rented some lights, jumped in the studio and knocked out some movie poster portraits with the cast of NiUV. They'll be released individually through social media as the season progresses.

A tight-knit crew from The Goddamn Cobras and The Cheap Thriller put their brains together to create the upcoming 10-episode web series called Nights in UltraViolet. I was honored with the role of Director of Photography. The dark noir-ish comedy will premier around early spring, but for now it's in the cutting room. The show stars a bunch of up-and-comers that are making headlines. Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, for example, are currently working with Amy Poehler to produce their show called "Broad City."  Creators of NiUV recently won best animation at the NYTVF for their project, "Cafe Bloodbath". And comedian Rob Michael Hugel won the audience award at the NYTVF for his show, "I Hate Being Single." In other words, stay tuned.
