I always feel like the orchestra is so under-appreciated on Oscar night. Without them, the whole evening would be pretty plain. Music and score lift a moment up to emotional heights that no other medium can. Thank you the the Academy for giving us a behind the scenes of the orchestra for the Oscars. Thank you to Dan Marks for featuring my beautiful and talented mother in the red sleeves! I love you Katia Popov, you are my role model.
I know all of you are going to love this! I worked in the production department for this web series. If you haven't seen Legacy 1 yet, you have some time to catch up before the full season of Legacy 2 is released on youtube. But to appease some curiosities, here is the trailer for MKL2. Thank you to Bandito Bros, Hayden Roush, Marina Stable, and Kevin Tancharoen (director of FAME). Enjoy!
Hey Everyone! It was a pleasure to UPM this project. Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with the talented Ben Howdeshell (director), Hayden Roush (producer), Shawn Wallace (producer), Eric Leach (DP) and Dmitry Tokoyakov (VFX). I am so impressed with how this web series turned out. We had so many different locations, a heli, picture vehicles, crashes, and complex VFX shots. If you are interested in the making, we have behind-the-scenes on youtube as well. This web series is a total of 6 episodes at 5-7 minutes each. You won't regret it!
Have a great day!
I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving. I wanted to just post about an amazing director I have had the pleasure to work with, JUSTIN TIPPING! He is signed by UTA now and getting his stories out there. I am very proud of him. His newest collaboration will be a short film with LEXUS. He is featured on their website and the photo they used is from a music video for AMPLIVE we produced together. You may recognize the image from background photo. Below is the link for more information. These shorts are going to be awesome if Justin has anything to do with them. Talk to you all soon!

Hey Everyone! I hope you are having a productive summer. Below is an amazing collaboration between Acura and Metric.

Of course, thank you to my amazing last minute crew: Bernard Evans, Carole McClintock, and Quincy Gray. Thank you Matt Stanley and Lauren Graham for bringing me on this project. More videos to come.
