A new study in after-hours and accidentally beautiful industrial lighting.

Generative Design

This was one of my favorite generative design works I made at my last job  – it was intended for the background of a talk show set. Made with Processing.


I started a series of web tutorials on video production. The idea is to catalogue small but helpful things I’ve learned that make life easier on set or in the field.

This one was my favorite, so I actually bought the fabric and made it over the course of […]

Here’s a rundown: Monday March 14th I’ll be on Prairie Public’s radio show Main Street talking about the creation of my film Bill Brunton: Guitar Maker which was […]


One of my favorite things about living with Bree is seeing her illustrations come to life. Inspiration comes to her from many sources: fashion photography, floral arrangements, and color pallates in nature and I’m constantly in awe of her ability to combine all those inspirations into one beautiful illustration. My vision for this video was for […]
