behind the video with Wavves

My friend Patrick O'Dell recently directed an awesome video for the Wavves song "Post Acid" The concept is inspired by Encino Man, except instead of a caveman they find an alien and make him cool and party. Abigail Portner designed and made the alien stuff, Spanky starred as the ripping alien skater, and party guests included members of Abe Vigoda, Best Coast, Cali Dewitt, Dustin Dollin, Braydon Szafranski, Justin Regan, myself and others. The Wavves dudes put their souls into acting and it was hilarious. Here are a few photos I shot on set.

Stay Gold

Emerica was nice enough to put me on the list for their Hollywood premiere of Stay Gold. Such a great example of quality skateboarding and filmmaking.  Here are some photos I shot for them.

shot by a dog.

I was asked to do a video for my friend Walt's video art show at Echo Curio. I could tell my dog Laika wanted to be involved, she really likes Walt. So I gave her a tiny camera and let her be the videographer for me.
 Our new short film is coming along nicely. Currently considering soundtrack, titles and release options.
