A music video I worked on with my friend and wedding video partner Nicholas O’Bradovich was released today. Check it out:
While I’ve spent the last few years photographing weddings and making videos, up until recently I never really felt comfortable shooting wedding videos. Earlier this year my friend Nicholas convinced me to partner up with him and try our hands making wedding videos.
Last week, me and my girlfriend went to New York City for a few days. I’ve only been to New York one other time, and that was for just a few hours on the Lovedrunk tour back in 2012. We shot a music video, then we pretty much went straight to New Jersey to crash for the night and we were gone the next day.
Needless to say, I was pretty excited about the whole thing. Here’s some of my favorite photos from the trip.
Sometime in late 2014 I was working sound at a funeral and had an idea for a short film – what if someone took up the offer of a “helping hand” and took it way too far? After writing a rough draft I found a cast and together we polished it up, shooting it in early 2015. The rest of that year was rough on me for some reason I can’t really put into words and I left the project shelved, aside from pulling it out to edit it for a few minutes once every few months.
Finally in 2016 things started clearing up and my headspace became a lot more clear and I was able to finish the film. At the time the Omaha Film Festival was accepting entries for it’s 2017 festival so I submitted it, thinking it probably wouldn’t get in. To my surprise they ended up accepting it for the festival, which meant it wouldn’t be publicly available until after the festival, which just wrapped up two weeks ago.
And now, nearly 2 years after we shot the film, you can watch it for the first time. Enjoy:
Here is the final video of 3 I shot for the Omaha Guitar Trio. For this video they wanted it to have a live room feel so we recorded it in the living room of the home recording studio we were shooting at. Since we did the whole thing in one take the camera work is a little less dynamic, but all in all I’m still pretty happy with how it turned out.
