"Breakfast For Two" - Short Film

This was filmed during the safer-at-home quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic in Memphis, TN. I wrote the concept and filmed it at home.

My wife was a good sport and starred in what she said was her first and last performance.

The original score was performed by Topher Horn, a producer and composer I worked previously with on the Pathetic Sounds of Detroit album. Also from that album was the artist Emily Rose, who performed the final song "Solitude" in this film, a jazz standard from the 1930's.

Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor - "See You in the Mourning"

The band was looking for a video that resembled Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut."

The production of this involved no film crew outside of me and a camera. Everything was created very quickly on the fly, and utilized film from a security camera that the band had along with a Canon C100.

Pathetic Sounds of Detroit

This is a video series I filmed and directed while recording the Pathetic Sounds of Detroit album. Since we were keeping with Jack White's original release and limiting ourselves to recording the audio completely on 1/4" tape, I decided to also limit ourselves on the videos that accompanied the release and recorded on tape. This was recorded on an old Sony Handicam DV camera.

Along with the record, the project included music videos, previews, and behind the scenes interviews.

Emily Rose, who is featured in this series, would later perform the title music on "Breakfast for Two."

I produced this project while in law school.
