Summer Scouts: Olympic White

I co-directed this music video with Summer Scouts’ band-member Jared Gibson as the official music video for the song “Olympic White” by Summer Scouts.

We shot the video in and around Slatington, PA, and carefully chose locations that conveyed the video’s small-town aesthetic.

OWI also edited and color-corrected the video, as well as produced it. It was wonderfully shot by Paul Hinson.

Jamel: E2

Jamel visits Washington D.C., circa 1865 in episode 2 of The Adventures of Jamel: The Time Traveling B-Boy.

The episode was shot at the historic Woodlands Mansion in Philadelphia, where we turned some of the rooms into the lobby and presidential box of the famous Ford’s Theatre, all without touching any of the walls.

I collaborated with Regalia Costumers on the costumes to bring the characters to life!

Written by Jayson Musson, directed by Scott Ross and produced by All Ages Productions. Props and set design by Lenore Romas.

SPOKE magazine: Fundraising Video

I collaborated with the team at SPOKE magazine to craft this video for their 2016 Indiegogo fundraising campaign. The video was directed, shot, and edited by yours truly.

I set out to capture the energy of every-day Philadelphians moving around their city and ventured into different neighborhoods to capture the diverse landscape that is Philadelphia.

SYFY’s The Expanse: Season One Recap

I was recently blessed with the opportunity to Art Directed this cat-tastic commercial for the Syfy show, The Expanse.

As production designer, I strategized ways to make quirky cat-inspired sets, while staying true to the aesthetic of the show. (ie: litter-box Mars, yarn-ball virus, cat-condo space station)

The sets were built in collaboration with cardboard master Jason Hsu, decoupage and sculpture lady Allison Boegemann, and spaceship designer Elliott Lamborn. The costumes were designed and constructed by the fabulous Carrie Collins and Tran Ngyuen.

The commercial was directed by Ted Passon and produced by All Ages Productions.

 

Jamel: E3

Jamel visits Spain, circa 1492 in episode 3 of The Adventures of Jamel: The Time Traveling B-Boy.

The episode was shot at the historic Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia, where we repurposed the main room for two distinct sets, the throne room and the torture chamber.

Written by Jayson Musson, directed by Scott Ross and produced by All Ages Productions. Props and set design by Lenore Romas.

Hendricks Air

Hendrick’s Gin takes to the air in this delightful Safety Video for their new cucumber-shaped airship.

I designed and decorated two miniature sets (1:12 scale) for the cockpit and sitting room of the airship, and collaborated with master builder Stephen Dufala to construct the rooms and engineer some of the moving parts. The sets were brought to life with stop animation.

I also designed our lead’s costume in collaboration with Regalia Costumers. You might notice my gloved hands duck in there a few times too.

The video was directed by Ted Passon and produced by All Ages Productions.

Dan Deacon: Feel the Lightning

I collaborated with director Andrew Jeffery Wright to bring his vision for the new Dan Deacon music video to life. I was asked to engineer and build the costumes for the dancing chairs and create the 70s-sitcom inspired set! I collaborated on some of the costumes with costumer Kristen Lupoli, upholsterer Teresa van Loey, and of course the great Andrew Jeffery Wright himself!

Summer Scouts: Vessel

I am proud to make my music video directing debut on this performance video that I edited, color corrected, and co-produced for my fabulous friends in Summer Scouts. The video was shot by the amazing Chad Cooper and produced by Paul Hinson.

Hendricks Gin: So Many Ways to Bond

Hendrick’s Gin takes to the science lab to study the effects of affection on cucumber taste.

For this commercial, I set out to design and decorate a set that channeled a research laboratory in the 1970s and featured an analog polygraph machine hooked up to a cucumber plant.

I sourced varied period-appropriate props and set pieces, and built some props like the headphones, EKG pads, and the cucumber plant itself. I also designed the character’s costume.

The video was directed by Ted Passon and produced by All Ages Productions.
