The last couple weeks of April and first couple weeks of May were kinda a blur. Things were fast. Here’s a recap.
April 15th, I went the DVD Party for the film
The Art of Travel which Chris Masterson starred in. The film was directed by Thomas Whelan and produced by my filmmaking friend Brian LaBelle.
Erased Tapes launched a great series called Found Songs, where Olafur Arnalds did one song per day for a whole week. All the songs were free and never before released! It was awesome!
On April 19th, my two best friends from high school, Kellyn and Nikki got married. Wow. Happy for them. Wish them all the success in their marriage. Here’s the
wedding set .
Thomas Verrette premiered his film, I Am The Bluebird at the Atlanta Film Fest. I was super excited! Here’s his genius trailer:
I decided not to go to NAB in Vegas this year, but
Mark Pederson from Off Hollywood was there. Crazy fun news from Vegas this year, although not like 2007 and 2008….
Isis and Titus were in LA with the band they were tour managing, The Whip from the UK!!! It was a blast seeing them and shooting for the band. Here’s my set from the two nights of shooting in LA.
Did Jury Service for a few days which sucked…. Then
Alex’s new EP for his side project, Tonight’s The Night launched on itunes!
Drove to Orange County and dropped
RED998 off at the RED HQ to get the audio board upgraded. I then went to the Evolver Los Angeles launch where Daniel Pinchbeck ran a gathering of minds. A few days later my friend Leah Meyerhoff cast the main actors for her film Unicorns. She was written up in Variety. congrats!
On April 30th I got to work with
Logan Kugler for a few articles he was writing for some magazines. We got to hang out with Jay Leno at his Garage. It was neat. Look for my photos in Autoweek. Big shout out to my friend and fellow photography Brad Kugler for the opportunity.
In May, I launched a test project on the new site
Kickstarter. Pretty neat! I Am The Bluebird won the audience award at the Sunscreen Film Fest. congrats! Here’s Brad Kugler’s recap video.
The all the new 16×9 widescreen
Four Eyed Monsters episodes launched on youtube! The DVD is available in the US here.
RED998 was in a
submarine in Fallen Leaf Lake up at Tahoe with Nathan Garofalos
May 10th was the LA premiere of the film I edited.
America’s Phoneless, directed by Ted Prescott. It was part of the closing night of film at Mockfest 2009.
On that same day,
Mike Ambs also started his journey east. He will be editing Project Pedal in Michigan for a while. Excited for new episodes of Pedal and the cut of the genius feature documentary film, For Thousands of Miles !!!!!!
I stumbled upon
Live for Fame from Karen Abad. It’s a neat sharing site where you can share your best photo work and music work…. Nice work Michael Perry and Andrew Cornett!! Her’e s my profile there. I have a few of my favorite photos from flickr up.
I decided not to fly to the
Cannes Film Fest this year…. my friend Scilla Andreen from Indieflix, Anita Ondine from TouchLight Media, and Jamie King (who did the film Steal This Film) were all there. Hopefully someday a project of mine will make it there.
May 18th was
Caitlin Randolph’s and Viola’s birthdays! You guys rock!

Roger’s film!!!!! The Age of Change
