Cellus Hamilton’s NEW Music Video Premiere for “Fire & Wood” Directed by Lee Milby

I met Cellus Hamilton one hipster night in Brooklyn when I decided on a whim to do a live painting performance at a local venue. Cellus happened to be a performer, and approached me while I was painting to introduce himself. Just a few weeks later, we would be shooting our first video together that would go on to get featured on, Pigeons & Planes, and many more publications, Read More

Lost in London Review

After seeing this unconventional yet charming trailer for Lost in London by Woody Harrelson, I was instantly intrigued. My friend showed it to me on Reddit, where people were furiously debating about the film’s legitimacy. “It’s like Woody Harrelson got high and forgot what a play was” one Redditor wrote.

I’m pleased to announce that in its Read More

OK Go Super Slow Motion Music Video – shot in 4.2 seconds

Sponsored by Morton Salt company, as part of their new marketing campaign “Walk Her Walk” (#walkherwalk). At first, the campaign seemed like it was something related to feminism or women’s rights (walkHERwalk), but after checking out the Morton website, it seems like it has something to do with walking = drive = moving forward + “The One Moment” = making a difference (one step/moment) at a time??? I don’t know… There’s no straightforward explanation Read More

Sia’s “The Greatest” Music Video hurts for all the right reasons

When an artist puts out a trailer for a music video, you know it’s going to be landmark. The first two times I watched “The Greatest” music video, I was captivated by the cinematography, color grading, and of course, the evolution of Ryan Heffington’s mesmerizing choreography. I wondered where they shot it (was this the same set as the “Chandelier” music video?) and wondered whether they had used a camera trick to accentuate the dancer’s Read More
