I would like to thank Industrial Light and Magic for 40 years of eye candy, especially the 2 fantastic coffee table books I own on their visual effects. Because, you know, I read them. A lot. Read More »

This lighting and projection design was a challenge and I’m very pleased with the results. For the lights, I only had 8 dimmers to work with. For projection, I utilized Isadora.

What a fun and frustrating challenge this show was – directed by Robert Kramer, starring Michael and Rachel Bouchard, Brian Landis Folkins and Chris Kendall. The script, by Mike Bartlett, describes that the show should have no set, no lights, no sound, no props. What? What?! While that can mean endless possibility, it can also easily cause “deer in the headlights” reaction. Set designer Christopher Waller started off the design team with a fantastic idea to create a cock fighting ring set up in the theater. That risky idea created a unique setting in which I could play with lighting (again, pretty much in the round) against a black and dull metallic background.

Well, this might be a bit mushy for some folk, but it’s powerful for me, so I’m posting it. The song speaks for itself. 2014 was supposed to be my year. It wasn’t, but as they say, you can’t win them all. 2015 brings 30 and who knows what else. All I can do is Carry On.
May I always hear the sound of my feet upon the ground, and the same to you in 2015. Cheers.
I shot and edited this fun video for ARTiculate: Real&Clear. We wanted to do a fun spoof video for the holidays, but also make sure to give relevant content that would be beneficial to the audience. The result is fun, was quick to put together, and makes me laugh every time I watch it. Enjoy and Happy Holidays! (And always remember to Merry responsibly ) Read More »
