Finished up a quick music video for Berthold City. We shot it over the course of about 6 hours in a studio space in the valley. Why do traditionally trained Editors make for great Directors? They can move quickly from shot to shot editing the piece in their brain. They can see what they'll need. What sync issues might come up, and best of all. The know when they've got it. Which is why we were able to shoot this under such time constraints in a limited amount of space with a bare bones crew. Enjoy.
Wow. Well, it's been about 2 years since we initially shot and edited this short documentary about an amateur boxer named Cesar Rocha. Unfortunately I ran into a bit of a problem releasing this for public consumption over the last year or so. It's too bad, because I thought this was a pretty nice story on a young man that I've grown to know so well over the past 3 or 4 years.
When I look back on this piece now it feels dated and old. Mostly because my abilities have progressed over the past few years. I wish I would've been able to feel comfortable putting this out in the world earlier. Yet, that's the way it goes sometimes.
Either way, I hope you enjoy this piece I did just for the passion of story telling. We didn't make any money on this, in fact, I submitted it to about 10 film festivals, and it only got into one. Plus I had to pay for the usage of the gym. So, this is all about the passion for story telling.
Hope you enjoy.
Was having a minute on the couch this morning and decided to click through a few thumbnails on Vimeo to see if there was any great content that I had been missing out on because I hadn't just browsed in a while.
I don't know what caught my eye about this. Maybe the title, it allures to legacy, parenthood, and the relationship between generations. Immediately I was struck with the quality of work, the dialog and the writing. This is what I always want my short pieces to feel like. I think it's just great when you're able to find an artist that you're on the same trajectory as. Someone who you can look at their work, and love it because you know they're in the same space as you.
So enjoyable. Hope you feel the same.
