Now it's a Tomato Explosion!

Oh what the heck, I think these tomatoes are exciting to look at both because of their shape and color. I hope you enjoy.

Tuesday in a Moment

Here is my Junior film. It's one part silent movie, one part music video, one part unrequited love story, one part short film. Mix that all together and what do you get? Let me know.

The Garage

This is a music-documentary that we did for class. The assignment was to depict an everyday process happening in real life. We decided to chronicle food getting ordered, made and eaten at a local diner named the Garage. I co-directed, co-shot and co-edited this short with a team of five other people.

I will keep making stereograms but I have decided that I will use flickr to display them. This frees me up to focus my blog more on art and films. The exception would be if I come across a particularly outstanding Stereo Photo.
