Stop Motion Digital SLR

The lead single from Kaki’s new album, Dreaming Of Revenge. The video was made without film cameras — it consists of over 5,000 still photographs shot on Nikon D30s. There are no special effects; all of the light trails were created by hand, with up to eight individual “light animators” flashing LEDs and flashlights on and off over a long (8 second) shot exposure. Over 650,000 views on YouTube!

Fish Party

Stop Motion Sillyness

Digital Stills

Wanted to see what we could make in the time it takes to smoke a cigarette.  Editing took five minutes. We thought about putting an American Lung Association Logo on it and calling it a spec spot, but technically fish don’t have lungs.

Anniversary Present

Movie Trailer

Super 35mm — 8 min Short Film

A black comedy delving into the volatile emotionality of newlyweds. The film begins with a blissful wedding, but the young couple’s union explodes when a sudden fit of jealousy unhinges Sandra and Lonnie’s world. Generosity leads to spiteful reprisals as a metal-crushing, fire-spewing crescendo shows that mayhem can be an integral element in the high stakes of true love. Finished as a 5.1 surround sound anamorphic theatrical print, Anniversary Present is a frenetically paced, quixotic comedy.

Official Selection: Calgary International Film Festival (Calgary, AB)
