Heartless Music Video

A video I helped produce in the desert this summer for Betty Black. Part of the shoot took place in this motel with theme rooms where we found a crack pipe in the Cadillac bed. I love this song. Enjoy the video after the break. Check out more of Betty Black’s music at this link.

“Troop Hood,” my newest short produced with FunnyorDie!!!

I had the pleasure of writing and producing a short for FunnyorDie with my directing partner, Suzi Yoonessi, last weekend. The film is a take on the beloved movie, “Troop Beverly Hills,” and takes a reverse look at the subject of Girl Scouts in the hood. We got Tasha Scott from the original “Troop Beverly Hills” to be in it (which was very exciting) and the short stars the hilarious Chris Kattan. Thank you to everyone who participated. The kids were amazing. You can see more pics from the shoot after the jump.

Y.A.W.Y.E. – Kickstarter

The kids’ show I wrote for, “You Are What You Eat” is raising money via Kickstarter to fund its first season. This show does a great job of mixing humor and lessons, nutrition and playing with your food, music and visuals. If we teach our youth how to eat well now, they’ll live better later. Any little bit helps. Produced by Switch Studios. See the sizzle reel after the jump. THANKS!
