EXES AND WOES [SHORT COMEDY]
The debut music video for the refreshingly poignant and soulfully exuberant hip-hop artist, Lando Chill. The track Surface Hercules [Stay Gold] was the first track recorded for Lando's mixtape: Broken on the Wheel. After co-producing the song and collaborating with Lando in the studio, the track evolved into something unexpectedly fervent and close to my heart. Once it was mastered, Lando and I collaborated on creating a surreal visual landscape in which he could unleash his charismatic, soulful, and zen-like style on the screen; see the result above.
THE USUAL MESS INC.
A dry comedy about adolescence, odd jobs, and quirkiness. This short film grew out of a love for trying to combine comedy and hip-hop. I brought together two talented artists: Lance Alan: a hip-hop artist, and Mikey Dean: an actor, comedian, and writer. Together we were able to create a unique story about almost nothing at all. The film focuses on improvisation, relationships, and a disconcerting sense of social and gender awareness.
