Editing Uptown

Back in April I was introduced to a filmmaker named Celia Peters.

Celia shot and produced the dvd special features footage for a film titled Uptown.

I played the role as editor for what Celia shot.

The video I put together is titled "Editing Uptown". It's basically a peak into why the director Brian Ackley picked certain shots and what trials and tribulations the editor Daniel Green went through with putting the film together.

You can see Celia Peters in the picture above with myself and Uptown's producer Princeton Holt. We were celebrating the movie's New York City Premiere back in June. It was held at the Anthology Film Archives.

The film Uptown is about two characters named Ben and Isabel who fall in love but the the twist is that Isabel is married. Check out the trailer ....

If your interested in viewing Uptown and viewing the Behind The Scenes video I edited you can purchase the dvd on July 20th. The film has been picked up for multi-platform distribution!

It's available for pre-order at , , , and

I'm really glad to have been apart of this great project.

Too many friends?

I did not know this was possible....

How can you have too many friends??!!??

A person can never have too many friends. Especially now w/ social media and technology apart of everyone's lives.

C'mon Facebook get with it!

Do you agree???

Snoop is a True Blood Fan

Ohhhh I just saw this video ...

Snoop Dog has created a video talking about banging Sookie from the hit HBO Vampire show "True Blood"

My favorite part is when he mentions Sookie's best friend lol oh and when he says Sam turns into a "bitch" lol


Charcoal Drawings

Once again I had the pleasure of filming and editing for illustrator/artist extraordinaire CortesNyc.

We both were invited by a director named Daniel Hastings of Atomicus films to go on set of the music video he was directing for Bad Boy's Day26 band.

The music video was for the song Stadium Music from their second album Forever in a Day.

Basically CortesNyc set up a large sheet of paper and started freestylin' a loose charcoal drawing.

During the video shoot, different Day26 band members, Dawn Richards (of Dirty Money) , and other video models came by to ask questions and pose in front of his drawing. You'll see the chaos in the video below. I had a great time being behind the scenes on Danny's video shoot. Here's a photo of me infront of the finished piece.

Check out the video.....

Art and music by CortesNyc

And to see Day26's actual final music video or more video work by Daniel Hastings go to-

Shut up DOG!

The other day I saw this infomercial about a product called "Bark Off"...

I'm not a huge dog fan but I do not think I'd ever get one of these..

This is just wrong.... just don't have a pet if it's that bad!

Remember that cat's are cuter and quieter lol
