My uncle John Poch is a poet, and for a while now he has been asking me to film some visuals for one of his new poems. I was meant to go out to Texas where he lives but it looks like it won’t happen until later this year. So I put a collection of clips together from my recent travels along with him reading the poem aloud. So check it out, and let me know what you think.
Last year I started working on a new video segment for Run For Cover called Off The Radar. The series will focus on creative people and ask them to recommend 5 things that you should check out. I thought it would be interesting to start a series that isn’t directly linked to music and showcase some great up and coming creative individuals.
The point of this series is to put you on to something different that you may not know about, be it a book, an artist, or even just an interesting product. As a creative person I love being recommended new artists or projects, so I am really passionate about this series and I hope you guys will enjoy it.
I Flew to SF in December to film a music video for Creative Adult. I always get nervous about working with people I have never met, but straight away we got on and I knew we were going to create something interesting.
Although there was no plan for a narrative, I watch it now and think it couldn’t easily be about a stalker or a voyeur, with the uneasy feeling of being watched. We kept the video very simple, so we bought some white paper and made a make shift studio in Mike’s garage. Then just lit it with a single LED light and an iPhone. I like the slight cinematic quality that come across in some of the shots. Let me know what you think.
A limited edition “Deep End” 7-inch is out 1/28 and their new record “Psychic Mess” is out 2/25, both on Run For Cover. So if this is your thing, check it out and support this band.
Here is my most recent video that I shot for Daylight. This was super fun to make, and was the first time I really had to direct scenes and people ‘acting’. We wanted to try something really different with a strong narrative theme. I had brainstormed the idea with Matt and Taylor a while back and we just developed it further until we had this strange treatment for a black comedy music video.
