NYC night lights
Night lights NYC. A Japanese motorcycle gang. 30 seconds of engines revving. I could watch this backwards and forwards for hours. I love the lights the movement and the noise of this city at night.

I've been travelling a lot this month. I am not allowed to film anything new untill I deal with the 10 tapes piled up on my table. So, this is the story, picking it up in the early-middle part, like any good story there are many perfectly fine starting places and relevant vantage points throughout. Be sure to look here, here, here, here for more.
Special thanks to my dear freind Sara Heifetz who performed as 'the voice of Gilles Deleuze' in this video. The text is taken completely out of context, from his book Cinema 1 - the movement image.
a subjective perception is one in which the images vary in relation to a central and prevlidged image; an objective perception is
one where, as in things, all images vary in relation to one another, on all their faets and in all their parts. These definitions
affirm not only the difference between two poles of perception, but also the possibility of passing from the subjective to the
objective pole. For the more the privledged center is itself put into movement, the more it will tend toward an acentered system
where the images vary in relation to one another and tend to become like the reciprocal actions and vibrations of a pure
matter. What can be more subjective than a delerium, a dream a hallucination? But what can be closer to a materiality made up
of luminous wave and molecular interaction? (on google )

Made this for my friend Raould who loves the carousel at Prospect park.
Reminded me of these 16 mm films we would watch in elementary school.
I want to make more like it.
Gearing up for a kids feed for The PAN.
That's rightt, a daily 15 min video made by the PAN Group, that is all Gee - rated!

Do you dodgeball?
The PAN plays in the first ever Next NY dodgeball tournament!
We lose, I think, to Union Square Ventures? but it was all good fun. Afterwards, I was inspired to write a hot dance track about it. I predict it will be all rage in the clubs this summer.

This is a video for a song by House of Freaks.
I will be focusing on making videos for The PAN
Music Moments, using songs by bands I like, which don't have videos.
Filmed on the train down to Virginia and edited it on the ride back to NY. I have loved this train ride, in the past. It provided a much needed transition time from NYC to Richmond.
But this time is difficult. I have not visited since the murder of the Harvey family and I am still broken from it. I don't know if I will ever fully repair. I find myself crying most of the ride down and back. Making the video is difficult because of this, but cathartic, I am hoping...
Notice how the shift in the camera's perspective alters the way the land passes outside the train window. With the camera's lense parallel to the window, the trees pass by so quicky that they become an abstraction on a flat flickering screen. When the camera's lense is at a 45 degree angle from the window the world outside gains enough depth to become a doirama of streets lined with toy houses.
It is amazing how a small alteration in physical perspective can change so much.
