I started making movies the same year I began learning to play guitar, 1988. One of my first home movies was a re-make of the Ritchie Valens biopic La Bamba. Against my better judgment, you can see that adaptation over on the Dreaming Out Loud Records Vimeo page. I had a moldy VHS scare a few years ago that got me preserving a bunch of my early efforts there. More recently, I've been trying to focus on more vital projects. 


Although I am a professional video producer, this site focuses on my personal work. Click the dropdown menu under "Film" above for pages devoted to specific projects.


Possible Bird: "Bloom" (Music Video) [2020]

Shot in September 2019 in South Dakota during a marathon weekend of production for a documentary about the album Possible Bird by my longtime friend Sean Kammer

(Possible Bird Documentary) 


I've known Sean Kammer for 30 years now. He and I have been collaborating on creative projects for nearly that long as well. I was so taken with the songs he was working on for his then-immanent album Possible Bird that I proposed a film project about it. In the fall of 2019, I took a carload of gear to his home in South Dakota. I arrived around 11 pm on a Friday, we filmed all day and evening on Saturday, and I was home by 5 pm Sunday. Using his album as the foundation, this film will explore Sean's "art for art's sake" attitude, our decades of collaborations, and even the conflict resulting from the compulsion to create music and release it despite the ambivalence of its reception.

(Furious Light Documentary) 


Not sure what it will be ultimately be titled. In 2015, I started working on a documentary about the album I put out that year called The Furious Light. That project has grown in scope and complexity (and I've been sidetracked by a few things), but I'm pretty jazzed about how it's coming out and plan to enter it into as many film festivals as I can--something I haven't done since 2002
