I directed the new video for the LA band, Moodorgan:
The new video for The Present Moment (Desire Records / Mannequin Records) is complete.
I wrote and directed. View it, here: http://vimeo.com/29817261
May 12 was the deadline for completing the edit for Moodorgan's track Remember the Truth [prv2 (9.9.9) mix]. The concept for the video involved a number of "videos-within-a-video" integrated into a futuristic urban environment; with a lot of architecture to render, we had to put a few additional render machines on line.
It was also necessary to integrate a bunch of greenscreen footage shot at our warehouse space downtown.
Most of the editing was executed in Final Cut Pro; Lightwave for the 3D elements, and most of the compositing in After Effects.
The latest edit can be viewed here.
I was back at the Edison this week to work on lighting for a music video shoot. We broke out the LED PAR38s and 56s, a couple of scanners, the LED fresnels, strobe and the little red/green lasers; also used some of the house's ellipsoidals. Control was through a couple of DMX controllers plus a custom Max patch that I modified on-site as required
Many of my corporate/commercial projects over the years have involved video production of one sort or another, but the more interesting work that I've done - in my opinion - has been for screenings and performances in galleries and entertainment venues. My reel from this era is here.
