When both Jesse and Deco managed to break limbs (toe and leg respectively) the week before Halloween it only seemed fitting to dress up as one of fiction’s creepiest nurses – Annie Wilkes from Stephen King’s MISERY…
This week take a peak at what is happening in the digital art scene of Los Angeles.
I recently submitted a video art piece titled “Sisters” to the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival.

Meanwhile, the artist reception will be at LACDA (Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts) this Thursday night as part of LA’s Downtown Artwalk. Hope to see you there!

I originally shot a short film called “Skyview Motel” last spring. After spending some time editing, though, I decided to add to the story and shoot one more scene. In this week’s SuperCali video I take my viewers on set with actress Susanna Musotto and DP Samrod Shenassa:
It’s gloomy in LA today so I decided to sit down with a cup of tea and sort through random video clips from the past few months. Click to watch a fun Super Cali highlights reel.
Originally performed live by dancer Alison Rootberg, and musician Drew Broadrick, “Ophelia” based on the Shakespeare character, explores the character’s psyche through song and dance. I was later asked to adapted Ophelia into a dance film to be screened at Alison’s alma mater Wisconsin University. Being a former ballet, jazz and modern dancer I was thrilled at the chance to tell a story through movement and symbolism. The DP, Samrod Shenassa and I found a beautiful location in the hills of Malibu. We shot there, in a dance studio with a white back drop and in my bathroom. The bathroom shots were very inspired by one of my favorite music videos, Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”.
I started 2009 off right with an amazing road trip up historic Route 66 with a group of talented gals. We loaded up our photography and film gear and hit the road. Thousands of miles and dozens of double shot lattes later we ended up with a ton of amazing photos and footage. We still haven’t decided what to do with the media we shot, but if you want to view my photos of the trip scroll down and you will find links to a couple of my online albums.
