Friday! Paper Fish Opening! Wye Oak Video Premier!

Just got news the video is finished! It was so exciting to see it done after all the hard work we all put into it. It's been a wonderful experience to collaborate with so many talented and creative people. We will be screening it for the first time this Friday at the Paper Fish opening at the Metro gallery. 1700 North Charles Street, across from The Charles Theater.

The Paper Fish exhibit is a show of the shadow puppets and paper cuts which I made for the new Wye Oak Music Video for their song Fish, from their great new CD, Civilian. There will also be fantastic photos of the process of making the video on display by Neal Golden.

Opening event Friday, March 25th 7-10: At the opening guests will have the opportunity to make their own shadow puppets and participate in an impromptu production.

Closing event Friday, April 22nd 7-10: Live performance of the shadow puppet show from the video with Anna and Elizabeth and other special musical guests.

Email me with any questions.

Hope to see you!

Neon Video

I got to break out some of my old faux finishing skills recently helping out on Tommy Mayer's new video for his song called Neon. I wood-grained some doors, painted a wall will some decorative elements, and made some large signs with sparkly letters on them. The fun thing about working for Tommy is it's a rare opportunity to be really over the top.

Shadow Puppet Music Video

I spent the first part of this year working on an inspiring new project, a shadow puppet show for a music video for friends Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack of Wye Oak. The video is for their song Fish off upcoming release Civilian.  I had a lot of fun creating the characters for this underwater world and the process of working with film was a new and exciting experience for me.

Thanks to a lot of long days and helpful friends the video will be released along with Wye Oak's new CD this month.

Special thanks to Neal Golden, Katie Feild, Scott Dennison, Shari Edelson, and Mike O'Leary, and Owen Lang for all their hard work on this project!
