I directed a fun little zombie-comedy short film called “The End of the World Party.” Starring Nick Sommer and WC Tank on a blustery Halloween day at Grant Park in South Milwaukee.
Doing ADR with actor/co-writer/costumer Nick Sommer on a beautiful fall day (recording zombie voices and re-recording a couple of Nick’s lines — 15-30mph of wind on the day we shot).
A short video and photos of the beautiful sunrise overlooking Lake Michigan before the shoot.
Grant Park is an incredibly gorgeous park that I don’t visit enough. A visit there in late August got me thinking about shooting a film there.
Especially this photo:
Some more photos from that August trip:
I created the below video and photos for Slate River’s micro outdoorsmen’s tree-mount called the Stealth Mount. Designed to be portable and easy to setup, allowing you to mount items with a 1/4″-20 thread to a tree.
The wonderful craft-spirit publication’s second quarterly issue is free to read on Issuu (embedded below). You can check out my photos on pages 5/6, 23/24, and the last interior pages – 97/98. I also had photos in their debut issue (also free on Issuu).
The weekend of March 16-17 I will be directing a short film called “Coulrophobia,” very excited for this project that has taken some time to come to life, but has pulled some amazing people together. During the film there is a short flashback scene that will be animated by Mark Malenius using black-and-white split-toned stills I shot earlier this month, with India ink on textured-board backgrounds. You can check some of the photo assets out on “Coulrophobia”‘s Facebook Page.
Today and yesterday I am helping set up for the Badger Regional Volleyball tournaments in Milwaukee, WI. Below you can see a documentary I directed at last year’s tourney, following a girls 18s team on their attempt to become Badger Region Champions, and tournament director Terry Paulson as he rushes to prepare the tournament and keep everything together.
Just out is the first issue of micro-distilling, craft spirits, and small scale production magazine MicroShiner, available free online here. I have a handful of photographs in the online mag (and an ad!). Check out pages 52-55 and 66-69 for my photos. I’ve embedded a mini-version of the mag below:
