Experimenting shooting time lapse of flowers for compositing into a scene for the short film Sister Vengeance. Using a blue screen allows one to separate the image from the background, and insert the object into any scene. In this case, the object is a bundle of small flowers picked and suspended from the ceiling.
Above is a video still from footage I shot while visiting Egypt in 2010. This was erected in the Second Century BC. It was originally an Egyptian city called Nubt, which means City of Gold . It became a Greek settlement during the Greco-Roman Period. The town’s location on the Nile is 50 km north of Aswan (Syene) This is one of six films I am entering into The NorthWest Film Festival’s Make It Short contest.
These will be screened on Tuesday, January 17th.

Currently working on several short film vignettes. The above image is a frame from Valentine. I later omitted the color to stay consistent within the piece, and instead added a fluxuation with light on the rose in the foreground. The remaining short films are Bullet Train To Tokyo, Quick Hit, Kom Ombo, Elisa Palomino, and Western Lands. Details on the following are forthcoming. Also see my trailer for Sister Vengeance – I have been working on the film periodically since shooting in New York last summer. The running time appears to be around the 11 – minute mark.

Image from a recent photo shoot with Blue. I am currently working on a short film loosely based on my graphic novel, Two Machines. This film will focus on the revenge of three female assassins who take revenge on a rival gang, and their unscrupulous leader who has possession of a very dangerous technology that will change the future of humanity. The title is tentatively called Sister Vengeance.
Earlier this year, I had the privilege of meeting fashion designer Elisa Palomino. She had previously designed for fashion houses such John Galliano, Cavalli, Dior, and Diane Von Furstenberg. After seeing her extraordinary debut collection, I was inspired to make a short film. Over the past few months, I have been compiling footage of her building the second collection after launching her own label in February with her husband, Tristan Von Christann. My approach to this short documentary was to emphasize the craft of the collection itself. This video focuses on a few key pieces of her Spring 2011 collection, and an inside look at Elisa’s design process. See Elisa’s entire collection here.
