Producer Director Co-Writer Short Film Demo

I was looking for a fun project that I could do with my daughter Isabella who was 8 years old at the time. I thought that with the right twist Poe's Tell Tale Heart was the perfect story for what I needed. I wanted to make a film that was fun and bright, that told a complete story in less than 10 minutes. Enjoy. Starring Isabella Lenzi and Ginger the pug. This is an award winning short by Corkyworld Films. Taking best of festival at the Made in Michigan film festival 2010, and best comedic short at the Ferndale Film Festival 2010.

Director Demo Country Club Campaign

I directed this website video as part of the advertising campaign for a country club. Both this video and the commercial were shot in the same day using two cameras. All people in the video are club members, they were awesome.

Director Demo Corporate Capabilities

I was given this project with the direction of create something flashy and cool....about polymer coated steel. On day one of the interview portion of the shoot I noticed this interesting looking cube hidden in the corner of a storage area, I had found my hero. The clients were blown away by the video. Nothing makes me happier, except for free golf. The video was shot in Michigan, Virginia and Germany during the summer of 2010. Edited by Scott Kemp

Commercial Director Demo Country Club

I directed this commercial for a Detroit area country club in the summer of 2010. I love golf so this was a perfect fit. All people in the commercial are non-professional club members who volunteered for the commercial, they did a great job. There was a nice jump in new membership directly related to the commercial. I shot lots of great extra footage that will soon be posted to their website.

Commercial Director Demo

I directed two commercials for a Michigan based Kitchen and Bath store. I directed both commercials to have a similar look and feel so the spots would have a campaign feeling. The spots aired throughout the state with great success. The clients couldn't be more pleased.

Director / DP Demo promotional video

I was the Director / DP on this fun project . We were given the assignment of promoting a HiDef live shot room at a local production house. I wanted the piece to have a news magazine look blended with slick polished shots. Shot with the varicam and Canon 5d mark II using a slider dolly. This is what we came up with.

Short Film....Director of Photography

Forever in Time is an award winning short film that I was the Director of Photography of. The story is set during World War II and present day. I went for a warm romantic feeling during the WWII scenes and a colder blue look for the present day portions of the film.The two different looks mirrored the emotional struggle of the main character.
