The Great Movie Remix
An Audio/Visual project that includes audio, sound design, movie themes, film promos, and soundtracks, into a seamless mix, or "movie." In the spring of 2013 I set about creating a 'Movie Mix' . I had done mixes with cinematic themes before. But this time I wanted to take it a step further. To mix audio, sound design, movie themes, film promos, and soundtracks into a seamless mix or 'movie’. My idea was to somehow put the films in a different context. Like a DJ mix, but with movies. The result was even a surprise to me. It was like a film but with no visual aspect. I released the mix, and received a lot of nice feedback from it. The mix was subsequently heard by visual artist Cal-TV. He suggested putting together the video and clips from all the films and samples I used in the mix. I thought this was a brilliant of him to suggest it, as I was hoping for someone like him to come along and do the accompanying visuals. It turned into a true collaboration. His vision would help make my dream a reality.

To touch the face of god...
A short film I made on "The 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger disaster". A pivotal moment in American History. I remember my 5th grade teacher having our classroom watch the events unfold live as it was the first time they were sending a teacher into space. The shuttle exploded just after take-off. It shocked us. It changed us.
