Here is a video I directed and edited for my boy, Todrick Hall. He’s campaigning to get on Glee, and based off his song-writing skills and vocal kick-assery, he’s got an amazing shot! Give the vid a watch, lemme know what you think, and help Todrick get on Glee!

Having been a motion graphics designer and art director for much of my adult life, I’d like to think I know good after effects work when I see it. This is GREAT after effects work. It uses a very innovative technique to achieve such a simple beautiful video. It took the artist well over a month to complete in his free time, but the results are worth it. Just fantastic.
I recently got recruited to design the logo for a kick-ass band, SO & SO, featuring my good friend Brandon Rogers and a whole slew of amazing talent. Not only do I love their music, but I dig the aesthetic that they’re going for. While I sit and contemplate the design, how bout you sit back and enjoy some of their music by clicking the link above. If you’re in LA, they’re playing at Molly Malone’s next Friday (June 25th). I’ll be there.
My improv team that I play with every week at iOWest, Kitty Porn, recently did a photoshoot. I had a concept on how I wanted the photos to look and was amped to add some new work to my portfolio, both photographic and graphic design wise. The following are the results. They make me hard.
The photographs utilized a technique called, “HDRI”, or High Dynamic Range Imaging. I’ve messed with it before, but never to this extent. I wanted to avoid the need to shoot 3+ photographs at a time so I opted to take one well lit still of each individual team member and rely on my photoshop tricks to give me a similar effect.
