Here I am manning camera atop a table in the basement of the former home of Gaytee Stained Glass. Loving that my job allows me to go to such lovely and rich spots in my home state’s history.

Gaytee has since moved but their former owner John Salisbury is donating a few pieces to MNHS Collections, so we went along to document and hear a little bit about the history of stained glass in Minnesota. The space is filled to the brim with beautiful works and I hope they all find loving homes someday.

The listeners have spoken, apparently.

The Soapcast, the podcast that I’ve been producing and editing for the past three years for the Soap Factory gallery was just voted Best Local Podcast by Minnesota Monthly.

Very cool and very flattering. Thanks!

Here’s the newest edition of the Soapcast, profiling the co-directors of the 2012 Soap Factory Volunteer Biennial, KnownUnKnowns.

The opening is on Saturday night and I’m very excited for it because it will feature a brand new video installation of mine entitled 'The Problems'.

From TSF’s website:

Taking cues from social, political, and personal experiences, KnownUnKnowns examines the search for truth and the fragility of that which we believe to be real. This exhibition of local artists will showcase a wide range of media including painting, photography, installation, video, and interactive works. From a memory-shredding machine to a simulated experience of life on another planet, the featured artists take a variety of approaches to push boundaries and decipher the nature of knowledge.

Hope to see you there!

Here it is! The video I directed for local band Wild Cathedral has now been released to the world.

Luckily for us, it got featured on the City Pages ‘Local Frames’ blog post yesterday. It was a hug pleasure to work with these guys and everyone who turned out onset to dance for us were absolutely fantastic and ready for anything.

This past weekend was an overwhelming experience to say the least. We had a marathon shoot for the Wild Cathedral music video that has now resulted in some of the most exciting, intriguing and out-there footage I’ve ever concocted or directed. A huge part of that is due to the gangbuster crew I had assembled, who were willing to provide and encourage a multitude of weird and wonderful ideas to feed into the project.

Even more thanks are in order to all the band members, extras and dancers who donated their time to be in front of the camera. They were energetic and willing to try anything. I was totally astounded by all their hard work.

Above you’ll see some photos from Saturday, taken by AC Jacob Gulliver, that give a little glimpse into what exactly we were up to.

Getting ready to shoot a music video for Twin Cities band Wild Cathedral. I’ve worked with Chris Williams, one of the two main singers and songwriters from the band, previously on Keys, in which he played the younger piano player who comes upon a warehouse full of pianos.
This time around, we’re still very much going for a ramshackle, cobbled together look on this set and so far I think it looks fantastic! What you see above is a very basic shot of what the laboratory set we’ve been working on for the past few days is turning out to be.
Getting very excited about this!

Still reeling from the Keys screening at the Sonoma International Film Festival, but I’m happy to return home, where three films that I had a hand in editing were selected for the shorts programs in this year’s Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival.

Top left: Chris, directed by Ethan Holbrook, right: Little Wolf, directed by Christopher Peck and bottom: The Well, directed by Christopher Jopp. A trio of Chris.

Ethan’s film played last Monday to a very warm reception and Messrs. Peck and Jopp’s films will be screening tomorrow night at the St. Anthony Main theatre.

I am tremendously excited to see these movies on the big screen and was really privileged to work on all three of them.

It is with great pleasure that I report that my short film Keys has been accepted and will screen as part of this year’s Sonoma International Film Festival. I’m tremendously excited and proud to have my first non-Twin Cities festival screening!
Now I just have to find a way to get out there…

My buddy and erstwhile roommate Christopher Jopp is nearing completion on his first non-student short film, The Well. 

During shooting, Chris appointed yours truly as the documentarian of the process, resulting in this piece which I shot and edited. (My voice also crops up in it once and awhile.)

It was really fantastic fun to make and brought me right back to my days of filming Behind The Scenes docs of my high school theatre productions. 

So if anybody needs/wants some BTS action, you now know who to call.

This past week will most definitely go down in history as one of my most film-filled.
Three regional premieres with directors present, my first film festival screening and tons of other great movies that I got the chance to see — Tucker & Dale Versus Evil, Wagner & Me, Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune…
On top of seeing a ton of films, I also spent an equal amount of time working on Dreaming Paul, due to be finished by Friday. So the scramble on that continues.
Major highlights were getting to meet Morgan Spurlock (pictured above with myself and the usual crowd) after the screening of his film, POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold and getting to see his race-car driver ad placement suit coat in person. 
Wednesday came and went in a blur, as my film Keys was shown as part of the Emerging Filmmaker showcase. It was a total success and I was happy to peek around at a few ballots giving my film a ‘Superb’ rating. Fingers crossed. 
I met J.T. O’Neal the very first night of the festival, so I was intrigued to go and see his film Au Pair Kansas yesterday afternoon. A low budget dramedy set in the heartland, it was pretty fantastic to see what an indie filmmaker can do with a extremely limited budget. J.T. is a hard-working MN filmmaker and I’m happy to know him.
The cherry on the top of all this film-seeing had to be the Minnesota premiere of Kelly Reichardt’s newest film, Meek’s Cutoff at the Walker Art Center. Reichardt has been one of my absolute favorites ever since I saw her film Old Joy. Since then I’ve been hooked, going to see every single one of her films during her Regis Retrospective at the Walker last year. She was present after the film and had a Q & A with friend and fellow director Todd Haynes, another favorite of mine.
Meek’s Cutoff did not disappoint, easily one of the best films I’ve seen this year — easily one of the best films… ever. But then I could make that claim about any number of the films I saw in the past seven days…
