I love working with the Camilla La Vie team and bringing their dresses and ideas to life. They created a cool live action comic book / fashion shoot and coincided with this video. We shot at the Oheka Castle and I was fascinated by it’s rich history and magnificent design. It’s always a joy to film projects at picturesque locations because it makes the shot that much better, plus I have a decent place to take selfies :P
I’m pleased to announce a new webseries and project that I’m directing, producing, and developing the content strategy on that has a new twist on the idea of purgatory. THE ASYLUM is a story about an organization between heaven and hell that decides whether souls go to heaven or hell. Written by my friend David O’Neil, the story follows a lost soul named Hannah Donovan and her search for her late fiance while taking on the role of soul bounty hunter for the Warden of the Asylum, Maggie.
I’m so happy that I was able to work with a talented crew to create a variety of content on a single shoot day to build a world on Social Media through photos, videos, gifs, and blogs. I’ve always wanted to create a property that transcends traditional media and utilizes the full extent of today’s storytelling platforms that includes digital. I directed and edited this teaser and will be releasing 2 more narrative videos soon so please visity TheAsylumNow.com for more info and stay tuned for more content!

Earlier this year, I had a fun time filming and documenting artist and dancer, Ladie One, as she painting a mural in North Hollywood for her NoHo Art Walls project. A collaboration between my brands LA STREET ART GALLERY and STRIFE TV, I was able to capture a dancer and artist at work. Ladie is not only an incredible bgirl (breakdancer) but also a skilled artist that has meshed her graffiti background with her new found appreciation for street art. She is also a contestant on the Oxygen Network reality TV show, STREET ART THROWDOWN, which is now airing. It's great to see artists live their passions unfettered by obstacles or constraints that some self-employed people face. Much respect for her art as well as her dancing - she's quite the beast in the cypher.
