Azi Aishling “Cruisin” Music Video


I had the honor of working with Dublin, Ireland’s Pop Star Azi Aishling this past week! We shot a Music Video for her third single “Cruisin!” Not only is Azi an extremely talented singer/songwriter, she’s an all around amazing person to work with! She knows exactly what she wants in her videos and how she wants it to look. I really enjoyed working with Azi on this video and I look forward to working on a lot more projects with her! Major shout out to her manager Freddy of Stoop!d Genius Productions who arranged the shoot! I’m really excited for the world to see this video. We will be releasing it sometime next week!

“Tech Support” – A Short Film by Director Gary Dunkel


***OFFICIAL SELECTION OF THE 2010 FORT LAUDERDALE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL***

“Tech Support” is a short comedic film about a man who owns a home-based business and is forced to call one of those annoying tech support companies when his computer crashes!

The reason I wrote “Tech Support” was because I think it’s something everyone can relate to! We all at one point in our lives had to call a tech support company when our computer has crashed. We all know that when you call tech support companies a lot of the time it’s in a call center somehow in india where the person has no idea how to fix your computer. Instead they’re just reading troubleshooting tips on a computer screen. Anyone who has ever called a tech support company knows how frustrating it is to wait on hold for ever and than finally get that person who has no idea what they are talking about. This actually happened to me the day I decided to write this film. I had been on hold for about 2o minutes and finally got someone who didn’t know what he was talking about and my computer never got fixed. Basically I took my experience and exaggerated it just a bit to show the humor in it. I truly believe everyone can relate to this film and I hope you enjoy it!

It was my first time using the T2i for a music video and it definitely performed very well. Watch out for Webbz because he’s about to blow up!

840 Barrel Paintball Gun Makes Art


This is an 840 barrel paintball gun that makes art in 1/8th of a second! It’s so crazy how this thing is put together! This is definitely an amazing marketing campaign!

There Goes The Neighborhood (Short Film)


Finally after several months of pre-production work and scheduling conflicts we have now an official shoot day for “There Goes The Neighborhood!” We will be shooting the entire film this coming Sunday May 15th! One day shoots are always rough for an entire film but I have put together my usual film crew (Producer Adam Kaplan & Director of Photography Dominic Easter) to make sure that things run smoothly! We had 2 rehearsals with the cast to really work on the dialogue and block out the scenes! I really like how the performances have been with the cast and I believe this is gonna be a great film!

This is a comedy-turned-action film about a DEA Agent going undercover under the name of “Willy Doit”  and how he takes down a major drug supplier! Writer/Actor Jason Galotti had originally came to me with another script that we were gonna shoot but we decided to shoot this one first! Once I read the script I thought it was very funny and after a few drafts it became even funnier! I’ve always wanted to direct an action sequence where Federal Agents or Police raid a house so the fact that this is a part of this film is super exciting for me! I’m really honored that Jason asked me to Direct these films and I’m really excited to work with him! I look forward to bringing another great script to life! Stay tuned!

Miami Skyline Time Lapse


This is my first official time-lapse of the Miami skyline! I was shooting the skyline across the bay by the MacArthur Causeway. This time lapse was created by using 5 second intervals on the Shoot Timer Remote. All together it took 598 photos to complete this time-lapse and almost 2 hours!

Kanye West performs “Hey Mama” at Coachella!


Many people have their own opinions about Kanye West especially after the whole thing with him and Taylor Swift. Say what you want about Kanye about being heartless and an asshole and what not but he is an amazing artist and an incredible entertainer! What he did to Taylor Swift was 100% wrong, however, that’s no reason to not like his music. His music videos are also always amazing also! I’m a Kanye supporter!

Time Lapse Photography & Video


I have always admired time lapse videos! I think it is one of the coolest effects you can do and I really love watching them. I wanna start doing my own time lapse videos so I looked at random videos on youtube to kinda get an idea of what to do and I came across the video above! That video is incredible. It is very well put together with the editing and music! I plan on doing a lot of my own time lapse videos soon. I’m going to Vegas next month and I will definitely be doing one while I’m there as well as other photos! The way I used to do time lapse videos never looked right. I used to lock down my Panasonic DVX 100B video camera on a tripod, press record and let it run for a while and then take it into Final Cut and speed it up. That way kinda works but it definitely doesn’t work if you’re trying to do a sunrise/sunset or an extended period of time!  With a DSLR it’s so much easier and it actually works! I’ll post up my own time lapse videos when they’re created!
