PULLED FROM THE DARKEST DEPTHS OF FILES & FOLDERS ON MY COMPUTER!!!




Back in 2008, I worked an art department gig for a Smashing Pumpkins video directed by a chap named, Justin Coloma. This fun palette of blacklight-friendly paint made up the backdrop for this video called G.L.O.W. for the band...I don't know if it got a lot of commercial exposure, but nonetheless, a fun lil' work day.

I took this video of Billy Corgan of the Pumpkins directing this gal who looked like Strawberry Shortcake at a rave in the back of a Hot Topic.

Nothing mind blowing...But I'm clearing up space on my computer and figured I had to put it somewhere...


(VOICE INSIDE MY HEAD says: Hey you's guy, put 'dat piece of video of that bald guy up on you's inter blog!)


FYI...I also wanted to let anyone know that the voice in my head sounds like a Brooklyn-accent of a hairy man in drag....


Anyways, I want to continue using this here's inter-blog-a-my-thingie to introduce people to other practicing artists out there....

And being this is the first time I have ever posted this new idea I am introducing a person I had the privilege of meeting this last year....

If you've seen WES CRAVEN'S New Nightmare you may remember this scene with actor Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) talking with Heather Langenkamp (Nancy from the Nightmares 1 & 3) on the phone about strange dreams and earthquakes.




If you have or have NOT, in this particular scene Robert's character is painting in his home studio. Low and behold, they are NIGHTMARISH images of Freddy & otherworldly demons...




....Blah blah blah, long story short, I had the privilege of being introduced to the very cool lady behind those monstrous designs.

She has worked in film and television on various projects ranging from Fight Club to Desperate Housewives to Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.

The first time I met her and she told me about all the work she had created I was totally nerding out, because I knew exactly the work she had created in those films that I'd seen.

Her body of work goes beyond the material she has created for the entertainment industry. She recently showcased her series "Everyday Evolutionarys," at James Gray Gallery in the Bergamot Station located in Santa Monica, California.

Enough gabbing from me....

Believing the Hype: "A Song about the Power to Confuse"

Photobucket

Today welcomes the change of things to come...

The chain of thoughts listed today encourages a variety of work soon to be finished such as...


The Music Video for Minneapolis' Lookbook.

Back in June, I flew out to my ol' Minneapolis stomping grounds to direct this little no-to-low budget for the band. We shot it in one day and used what we had available which consisted entirely of spare hands,duct tape, and LED flashlights (No lie).

Drawing is by ISAAC GALE from BUILDING BETTER BOMBS (Minneapolis, MN)

I just got the MASTERED track back from the band. The song is titled,"Yesterday's Company", I plan to have it up here by the end of the week. If all goes according to plan.

AFTER the video wraps...We send it off for the bands album release in September.


NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT:

DANGER HAVOK

Ben Martin and I are working on a few shorts with good ol' fashioned prosthetics as the fuel for the fire....More on that later.

Till next time....

BLOOD ON THE HARD DRIVE music video

This is the full length video for "Blood On The Hard Drive"



I obtained a VHS tape of Robert Palmer music videos from the mid-80's a few years back.

Long story short, the idea spawned from that

THE LICK

The LICK is a 16mm color negative short film.





Unlike, the DIN MARIONETTE series (see previous postings), which was shot on black and white film stock this was my first attempt at using color film stock.

PLACENTO - The Scent of a Woman

This piece is a mock advertisement. I came up with the idea for a perfume that truly embraces the quality of what it must be like to be a pure unadulterated woman.

You can be the judge of that.

DIN MARIONETTE film Series

The following are two films that were apart of a series.

The first installment titled, "DIVOWR" is presented below.




The second installment is titled, "OCULUS EIDOLON"
