BEFORE THE STORM: 16th Anniversary

Sixteen years ago I co-directed a movie with Levi Obery.  Pictured above, is a behind-the-scenes still from one of the many nights shooting the living room scenes in my childhood home.  Eventually the movie was titled Before the Storm but take notice of one of the alternate titles on the slate.  This was one of many titles that were used during production.  Today we celebrate the movie's 16th Anniversary!  It is still available on DVD with a handful of Bonus Material - including a featurette, deleted scenes, "We Fall Down" music video from Aces Love, and its original theatrical trailer.  Some of this content can currently be viewed on its official Facebook page.  We did a full remaster last year which you can still stream for free on youtube HERE!

WORKING REMOTELY: 2021

 

 
While I was working remotely from home, at one point I was in transition between 2 shows.  So I had 2 work systems in my office/den, in addition to my own system.  This made for quite the command center of a setup for a little while.  The kid definitely enjoyed it as well.  Pictured above giving me editing tips.  My office is definitely still a work in progress, as I've only lived here for a few months now but it is coming along.  So far it has been wonderful to have a more dedicated space to work in both professionally and independently.

"FOOTLOOSE" (Holiday Music Video 2020)


In our follow-up to last Holiday Season's The Greatest Show music video, we bring you FOOTLOOSE!  Similar to last year, this one features all of our (My Wife & I's) siblings and their significant others - the shoots spanned over the course of the last 2 months in California (Sherman Oaks and Van Nuys), Illinois (Metamora, Germantown Hills, Peoria Heights, and Chicago), and Oregon (Portland).  It seems like a good way to socially distance shoot a project but honestly we used the exact same process last year.

Overall we ended up with more footage this year (2 hours more!), clocking in at over 7 hours of raw material for a song that is slightly over 5 minutes.  So the editing process was a little bit more time consuming.  Post-Production was carried out in Los Angeles and took over most of my December.  We finally locked and completed it at the break of dusk on Christmas Eve.  It premiered around 4pm that day.  No traveling home for the holidays this year.  So this video will have to spread all of our holiday cheer this season, with a punch!  Check it out HERE!

ID4-2: INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 Trailer (1996)

While logging some old footage I came across material from this fake trailer a few months back (which we shot in 1996 - most likely after seeing Independence Day in the theater). So I decided to chop something together.  A few of the city damage clips were pulled from a few of our other movies (since this was never going to be a full movie), The Battle of Yorktown and Kid Rangers - to fully flesh out the teaser.   So this is a teaser trailer for a sequel to Independence Day (years and years before a real sequel was ever actualized)!  Check it out HERE!

THE GREATEST SHOW: Behind-the-Magic

When we chopped together "THE GREATEST SHOW" in December we had the task of paring down almost 5 hours of total content into a 5 minute music video (within a few short weeks).  We were all very happy with the final product but it still left us with a lot of fun, strange, and interesting outtakes on the cutting room floor.  So we have compiled a reel of a bunch of this material, and also included some behind-the-scenes content.  Check it out HERE!
