Digital Arts Consortium: Sensory Overload Sunday

Last night, the Digital Arts Consortium hosted their inaugural multi-media collaborative event, Sensory Overload Sunday at Mohawk in downtown Austin, TX. In conjunction with live music performances headlined by Blowing Trees, several local artists had their hand in putting together a visual experience rigged like no other! My pal and partner in crime, Matt Daly, provided live visuals during the Blowing Trees set which were projected on multiple screens throughout the venue. Yours truly was there to film it all so check back soon for some visually stunning moving pictures. In the mean time here's a couple stills:

Bye Bye Bedroom

Sadly, I am moving out of my awesome house in a week, so before I started taking everything down off the walls and shelves and started packing up all my stuff, I decided to take some photos of my room and put together this little short to remember it by. Central Cooling Station #9, you have done me well. Now it's onto new adventures at the Pink Palace, voted the Best House in West Campus in 2007 by the Austin Chronicle! Lucky me...

"Take Me With You" Music Video

I just finished a stop-motion music video for Victoria Noll and her song "Take Me With You" which was shot at over 100 locations in Austin, TX. I have lived in Austin for over 6 years now and it has become my home, so I wanted to shoot a video that showcased both my beloved city and an upcoming singer-songwriter.

The multi-colored guitar and chairs were created by me for the video, which is meant to take viewers on a journey through the city. The theme and concept fit well with the song as well so I hope you enjoy the video and Keep Austin Weird! Many thanks go out to Victoria, the city of Austin and the colors blue, green, red, white, orange, and yellow!

Teresa Champion Dance Academy Recital

One month ago, I was hired to film the Teresa Champion Dance Academy's summer recital, from which I shot, edited and produced DVDs to sell to parents of the performance. Getting the DVDs burned turned out to be quite problematic as both my computer and DVD burner seem to be on their deathbed. Luckily I was able to produce a master copy of the performance and get duplicates made at Access Video & Photo. They were a life saver and I highly recommend their services if you ever need photo or video assistance. I put together a short compliation from the recital which you can view below. Overture, curtain lights, OLE!

Weekend Wedding & the 2-1-Oh!

This weekend, I went down to San Antonio to visit family that was vacationing from LA, to shoot photos for a family friend that was celebrating her 50th anniversary in the convent and to shoot a wedding for Mike and Jennifer Oropeza. It's always great going back to San Antonio, not only to visit friends that I don't get to see that often, but for the free food and fun at home! From touring the San Antonio Missions to Lone Star Studios 2nd Saturday, I had my camera in one hand and a drink in the other! Posted below are a few photos from the weekend and as always, more can be seen on Flickr... Coming soon: Victoria Noll music video (finally!)

Morris Orchids: In Bloom

Some really great friends of mine since high school play in a band called Morris Orchids. They are not amazing just because they are my friends... they are amazing because they know how to create great music. They have been playing together since 2005 and have added new members and sounds over the years. They just finished up a 6 track EP that is now available to download online via Band Camp. I highly recommend you check them out.

I'll be starting work on a music video for one of the new tracks in the near future but in the mean time, check out this video I dug up from their very first show on November 19, 2005 at Cafe Revolucion in San Antonio and a few other videos I've shot for them. They sure have come a long way...
