Los Angles

On my most recent trip to LA I joined a production for a commercial shoot. Between meetings I had some off time to take in some sun and hang out around town. Here are some photo's, and an illustration from my trip. Wish I could share the commercial images, but these might be more intriguing.

Spec Project: Soccer "It's our time"

This :30 second spot that I created with Alex Horner is fueled by rhythm, reflection and determination. A professional soccer player and his younger self come together to share the drive and valor that has helped them make it to the pro level. I'd like to thank everyone that helped out on this project. We made new friends and developed new collaboration partners. And a huge thanks goes to our talented drummer, Clifton Lovaloy and our amazing soccer player, TJ Haag. We look forward to sharing this film as soon as it's finished the post production process.

Spec Spot: Prudential

This is a story about a family movie night on the farm that's housed them for past generations. Grandpa has a surprise for this years family reunion that he created from Super 8 footage he shot back in the day. It's one minute in length and the concept was created and produced by Alex Horner and myself.

New York City

I was recently in New York City to meet with production companies, agencies and directors. Although I was too busy to take in much of the city, I did get a chance to walk over the Brooklyn bridge on my last day.
