Victoria BC 2009

Last weekend, Jess and I went on a little 4-day vacation in Victoria, BC. The above is a little mini-documentary of the trip. Over half the video is from our last night, which we spent with Brandon Velestuk and his friend Jason. We stayed up drinking beer, discussing film, art, and Victoria. It was a great trip.

Our hotel was amazing. We swam everyday and I actually was able to teach Jess to swim 10 feet! We need to find a local pool so she can continue her practice. Good job Jess!

About Dogs for real

Ok, so maybe it's not my comeback film, but it's a silly film and I hope to make more soon. Hope you enjoy it.

It was a challenge to control the look of things since I was in the video. Jess helped me out though. One of these days I want to actually write a script down and use actors so I can control the composition at every point.

But so far I'm only able to write things down after I've shot footage. I react to the visuals. I've yet to just write something into existence.

Oh and you'll probably realize that About Dogs is actually about cats. This was intentional. My conceptual answer for it is that I'm experimenting with internet misinformation.

Girl In Front of A House

Interesting street view on google maps. It's like a painting. Way to go, google maps.

About Dogs

I'm working on a film about cats. It's called About Dogs. Should be done soon, because I already have it edited, just need to do some audio tweaks and edits. The above is not a still from the film, but was taken moments before I started filming.

It's my comeback film.

Also, I am now doing music under the pseudonym Dynamote. Check out for a song. The song is called Time For Bed. Let me know what you think. I don't think it's very good. I've decided not to care about trying to make quality/clever songs anymore; just honest ones. And if for now, honest means poor/boring/amatuer, then OK. Sold. There's no other way.

It's 5am AGAIN but it feels kinda good.
