Busy vs. Social Media

Looked at my site today and I realized that it's been a while since I've posted a proper post.  It reminded me of the funny balance of being busy and looking busy.  Any casual viewer of my site might think I haven't had anything worth posting about, but the truth is, it's been too busy to post...  I've been working on a large corporate gig, a few more art videos, and doing some TV work for some Discovery Channel recreation crime shows.  I've been able to tweet fun stuff from these jobs, including pictures from the set and other things worth sharing, but that's all on my smart phone.  It's difficult to actually get some time to sit down and write a post.  Hopefully by moving my Twitter feed to a more featured location, it will help convey that I am actually working, even if I'm not posting a lot on this blog.

Here's something new, another art video I recently shot for Particle Productions:

Video As Art

Here's another video about a video I shot for Philip Dolin of Particle Productions.  Unlike the Bill Viola piece I posted a while back, the one is more about the artist, Hiraki Sawa's body of work.  It's a cool piece with a lot of clips of the actual work - very different, very out there stuff (definitely worth checking out).  Enjoy!

Another Year In Review

Hello 2012!  2011 had some fun stuff going on... you've got some pretty big shoes to fill...

2011 Highlights:

*I got married.

*I worked on a nice variety of documentary, art, industrial and commercial work.  New territory included some great transmedia work with Kinetic Fin, and my return to commissioned film (doc for hire sort of stuff).

*I finished up work on a compelling documentary, "Different Is The New Normal."  This was a great film on a boy with Tourette's Syndrome and aired on PBS in the fall.

*I attached myself to a very important documentary-in-progress, "Coached Into Silence."

*I bought a home and subsequently set up a sweet gear storage setup in my new garage.

*I shot (2nd) an episode of Animal Planet's "Confessions: Animal Hoarding."

All in all, I had a great year, both professionally and personally.  Let's hope 2012 continues the positive trend.
