Kanye at the Webbys
Kanye loves Kanye, this is obvious, as it turns out others love Kanye too.
So when the Webbys decided to honor him with artist of the year. Houses in Motion and I were tasked with creating this short video to precede his speech.
The video represents the internet, it is spastic, nonsensical, disjointed, noise, but some how mesmerizing.

Starbucks All Inclusive Holiday Promo
This is not an official advert for Starbucks.
Nov 16 2015: This is a spoof commercial in response to the Starbucks Red Cup outcry, if you are viewing this weeks after the cups were released you might not remember it. All I have to say to that is
Is the dress blue and black or white and gold?
I decided it be a fun learning experience to put this all together in 2 leisurely days over the weekend. Shot in my apartment done almost entirely practically, with exceptions of the light fades which were done by mixing three separate shots with different lighting setups each shot with the same camera move (THREE CHEERS FOR KESSLER) The other post adjustments were the slide from right to left for the end page and… that’s it. Aside from some minor color adjustments what you see is what was shot.
