"I am" - Poem written by John Clare
My Design for Media Final. Film/Music by Me, Art by my friend Mackay. This started as a concept piece, simply trying to combine my film-making style with Mackay's talent for unique artwork. The project kept evolving from the use of water and food coloring (blown and manipulated using compressed air), eventually to the super-sized painting project.
Short film from my senior year of high school. Starring Adam Summerer and Nikki Kaza. The spiritual successor to "The Cure for Love", being a short film based on poetry centered around the writer's mindset while creating it.
The Cure for Love
My first short film. I did this my sophomore year of high school, and in my senior year won a student award from the National Television Academy for Excellence in Technical Achievement (essentially a student-Emmy Award). Shot it one night with a little help from my brother, and cut it on Saturday mornings after my SAT prep classes. Still one of my favorites after all these years.
