HUE

CREATOR . DIRECTOR . WRITER

HUE, is a touch-based interactive tale about a man, named Hue, who has lost his ability to see color.  It tells a universal story about how it feels to be sad and how to communicate with sad people. While you can’t drag Hue straight out of the dumps, you can help him gently face the memories he once tried to repress and see the glorious moments of the present day. HUE had the honor of being selected for the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in January. Check out a Sundance Spotlight on the experience here and a wonderful review here.  **A better trailer is in the works.

MOVI KANTI REVO

DIRECTOR . WRITER . CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Movi Kanti Revo is a sensory Google Chrome Experiment that explores new ways for users to navigate through a digital narrative. The user follows a mysterious character through a surreal world as she teaches us how to navigate using gesture and tones. Utilizing a combination of traditional cinematic techniques and HTML5. The environment is built entirely with markup and CSS. Like set pieces on stage, divs, imgs, small videos and other elements are positioned in a 3D space using CSS. Using the new getUserMedia API enabled a whole new way of interacting with the experiment, instead of using the keyboard or mouse, a JavaScript facial detection library tracks your head and moves the environment along with you. More info about the technology on the Chrome Experiments site here and on the HTML5 Rocks site

 

YARIS. It's a car!

CONCEPT . CREATIVE DIRECTOR .  NERD

Toyota Yaris, It's a Car! How do you sell a remarkably basic car? One that has no awesome features to speak of? We decided to celebrate the fact that it’s got no awesome features to speak of! “It’s a car” was an all digital campaign that was centered around the most innovative website for one of the most basic cars. With the hilarious Micheal Showalter as our host, itsacar.com is an experimental HTML5 site that utilizes WebGL, realtime physics simulation, dynamic & adaptive sound, CSS3 and Multi User Socket Communication. Massive props to an amazing client who was willing to take a chance, in return Toyota reached 80% of the 2012 Yaris sales goal by February. It was also featured here on Google’s Creative Sandbox.

DOPPELHERZ

Having seen some of my personal artwork through his then-girlfriend Dita Von Teese, Marilyn Manson contacted me and I began collaborating on the art direction for his new album and tour. Doppelherz is one of the projects we created together, below is an excerpt of the 25 minute film. Which is a psychedelic trip through the world of Manson, it was filmed in the Hollywood hills and edited in a hotel room at the Sunset Marquis. The film was included as a bonus DVD with his album Grotesque Burlesque and is now a sought-after cult film.
