Supergroup Filthy Friends’ second album, ‘Emerald Valley,’ required a bigger roll out than their debut, so I hopped in and made a few video assets for the album. This lyric video for “November Man” was one of the few that got published.
Kill Rock Stars pulled out all the stops to promote Filthy Friends‘ second album, ‘Emerald Valley,’ and I added to the effort where I could. For this piece, I took some of the album art components and made this video loop over the lead single, “Last Chance County.”
“Girl Germs” is a five part podcast series about Bratmobile’s seminal riot grrrl album, ‘Pottymouth,’ that I helped produce for Kill Rock Stars along with The Future of What team. Over the course of the five episodes, the original members of the band reminisce about the album’s creation and the times surrounding its release with […]
Emily Heller (Barry) recorded her second album, ‘Pasta,’ for Kill Rock Stars at Curious Comedy Theater in Portland, OR, in January of 2018. I worked with her over the next couple of months to complete the final comp of the album that was released in November. Turns out Patton Oswalt enjoyed the album, as did […]
In the opening moments of her album, ‘Pasta,’ comedian Emily Heller explains why she makes jokes at awkward times, and why she’s fallen silent in the age of Trump.
Comedy duo, Frangela, talk a lot about the current political climate on their Kill Rock Stars debut, ‘Resist!,’ but this piece isn’t just leftist whining… it offers a profound suggestion on how to navigate the day to day.
Released just ahead of the band’s eighth (or nineth?) record, ‘Accustomed To Your Face,’ the video for Kinski’s “Guest Girl Vocalist” captures the band in their raw, natural state on stage thanks to footage shot by Matt Howl, and the quick edits and post-production trickery that I brought to the table.
After touring the U.S. throughout the spring and summer of 2018, Horse Feathers returned to Oregon to play a handful of shows with their Astoria compatriots Blind Pilot. I caught up with the band at their Aladdin Theatre show in Portland, and shot their full show with my phone, and turned the footage into the tour trailer you see above.
Shortly after the announcement regarding family separations at the border, and the visuals of children locked up in chainlink cages, I took to Photoshop to express how I was feeling about some of Mr. Miller’s immigration policies.
Already having an archive of mid-century vacation footage from around the southwest, I was able to put this trailer together fairly quickly, once S.L. Chamberlain told me he was going to use a photo of his mother for the cover of his debut single.
The music video for “The Ghost of Gus Grissom” speaks to the former astronaut’s final hours, alongside his fellow Apollo I space crew. Given the fact that the song was originally described as a “funeral dirge for cyborgs,” it made sense to pay homage to someone in the early days of the space program, especially one who was so mechanically adept.
Using footage from the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, chosen by Greg Reynaud (aka Midway In Wake), I created this lyric video for the song “Your Majesty,” which follows the lyrical themes of the track, which is about a soldier who’s been dispatched to a catastrophe to provide information about what took place.
For the album art for Oxfist’s “Greetings From Bombay Beach” I comped together a photo from the nuclear tests in the Bikini Atolls and another photo I shot at sunset in Oregon.
I watched nearly real-time coverage of the Charlottesville travesty thanks to Periscope and Twitter, and I had to express my disgust in some type of creative way. Thus began the fictional all white hip-hop crew, ‘Crackas Wit’ Attitude,’ who’s debut album was nothing but white noise.
