Little Big Town “Sugar Coat” music video

I had the opportunity to work with brother/sister director duo Stephen and Alexa Kinigopoulos again for their new music video. After working with them on Ruston Kelly’s “Mockingbird” video, I was excited to hear that their next video was for Little Big Town’s new song “Sugar Coat.”

The video turned out just gorgeously, and working with Kate Bosworth was wonderful — she couldn’t have been more kind or lovely.

LONG ROADS – short film

My friend Ashleigh Chavis-Wolfe called me up and asked me to come work on her latest short film. I’d collaborated with her before so I was already interested, but when I read the script I knew I wanted to be involved; bonus points when I found out I’d be working opposite my wonderfully talented friend Stefanie Butler.

We spent a couple days in the little town of Aynor, SC, putting together a heartbreaking story of friendship.

I can’t thank the crew enough who all came together to bring this film to life.

“Potter’s Ground” – a western feature

It’s been some long weeks of freezing nights shoots, but we’re finally coming down the home stretch on a western feature I’m working on called “Potter’s Ground.” We’re scheduled to finish principal photography in a week and a half. It’s an ambitious script, and I can’t wait to share it; the final product is scheduled to hit Netflix later this year.

In the meantime, here’s a teaser trailer as well as some screen grabs.

 

 

Ruston Kelly’s “Mockingbird” music video

I’ve worked on a lot of music videos. And I mean a lot… as in twenty-three at my latest count. Some of them I’ll never post about because, let’s face it, some jobs we just do to pay the rent.

But thankfully most of them have been great projects with great people. And this new video for Ruston Kelly falls in that category.

I worked with the brother/sister director team of Stephen Kinigopoulos and Alexa King last year, and when the opportunity came up to work with them again I jumped on board. We shot for three days on this video, and it turned out beautifully.

Find people you like to work with, and keep working with them.

Adrew Bradford – new cinematography reel

Bradford” as he’s known to those closest to him is one of the gutsiest, hardest-working dudes out there. His vision behind the camera is magical.

I’ve had the opportunity to work on a few films with him, and I was even lucky enough to have him on board to DP my latest short film “Prelude.”

He recently dropped a new cinematography reel. You should check it out. Also, you should hire him. You won’t regret it.

“Homeland” role

Working with Mandy Patinkin on “Homeland” was the highlight of my career in 2017.

When the casting director texted me and told me that I’d be working with Mandy, I geeked out. I grew up on “The Princess Bride,” so he’s one of the first actors to make an impression on me.

He had a lot of dialogue in another scene that day that he was working on when we were introduced, so I said hi and then kept to myself.
After we worked on our scene for a bit, he loosened up with me; he couldn’t have been nicer.

At the end of the day he gave me a hug, congratulated me on the scene, and then said “Call me and offer me a job when you’re a big star someday.”

I’ll never forget that.
