Director & Editor of Documentary Film & Television
Here is a trailer I directed, wrote, shot (concert footage by Trevor Banta), and edited for a feature length documentary film I was hired to produce for the LA based music companies IHEARTCOMIX, and Media Contender. Filming took place all over the continental United States and included appearances by artists such as: Grimes, Pictureplane, Big Freedia, Spank Rock, The Death Set, DJ Franki Chan and many more. Pre-production, production, and preperation for post-production were completed for the film before the film was abandoned by the financing parties when a Kickstarter campaign launched by the financiers failed to cover finishing costs.
"Kill All Redneck Pricks" is a film I wrote, directed, shot and edited, it features Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill), Kimya Dawson, Calvin Johnson (K Records/Beat Happening), Buzz Osbourne and Dale Crover of The Melvins and many more.

In Los Angeles the film had a sold out screening at Cinefamily.
