Imperial Mammoth remix

I made a orchestral-ish remix of the song "Light Up My Life" by Imperial Mammoth. I removed all the original instruments (except the vocals, of course) and added all new ones. Why? Why not?

Drone Practice

After some firmware and calibration issues, Jordan Long and I took the quadcopter out for a few test runs ... still having a few issues, but we're working them out.

The Kitchen Song

I made a song out of my kitchen. Back when I first started trying to make my own music, I'd always record and use my own samples from around my house or at school. This is a sort of throw back to that type of thing.

Performing

This is a montage of my day on March 29th, 2014 I performed a short lecture/comedy/music thing at Sandeep Parikh and Effinfunny's "Whatever I Effin Want Show 3". at Cowboys & Turbans in Los Angeles, California.

Can You Beam Me Now?

What if the star trek communicators were as reliable as cell phones... Here's a cool Star Trek spoof video from Effinfunny JAMS. If you look closely, you can see my Tricorder toy that I've had since I was a little kid. I knew one day it would come in handy! Starring: Sandeep Parikh & Adam Catino Directed & Written by…

Good Morning – Behind The Scenes

Here's a short Behind The Scenes video and some photographs from the filming of Good Morning. At some point in the near future, I'll make another post that details more of the post production process (special effects, music and such).   Press: The AV Club, "Puppets face harsh justice in "Good Morning."

No Budget Film Festival

Last weekend, Jordan Long and I (Half Cut Tea) were lucky enough to have a film in the No Budget Film Festival. There were a handful of interesting workshops and events and a bunch of great people. Here's a video I shot on my GoPro (until it stopped functioning) and my phone.
