Was really stoked to have some fun with set design and styling on this one. Mika owns his character in this sucker. And props to Mini Cooper for allowing me to have some fun with their placement.
Margaret is a brand new artist out of Poland and she rules. So stoked that she was down to make something like this for her first official music video… and she did such an awesome job throughout.
Had a lot of fun with this one. LOST fans might notice a handful of easter eggs mixed in because Tony Oller’s partner-in-crime in MKTO is Malcolm D. Kelley, aka… WAAAAALLLLLLT.
Thanks for the swell words, Brit Brit…
Stoked to have worked on such an awesome collaboration between 2 insanely cool artists. Kudos to the cast and crew. Good times…
Had a blast in London again with this one. The Wanted were awesome. The crew was awesome. Good times.
Went to London to direct the new video for The Wanted IFound You.
Had a lot of fun making this one. One of my favorite responses so far… “I’m disgusted and intrigued at the same time…”
The Pop Up Video for The Black Keys ‘Tighten Up’ is probably my favorite one so far. They definitely had fun with it…

On Friday May 18 2012, my alma mater, Chapman University Dodge College Of Film And Media Arts, awarded me with Alum of the Year aka the Ron Thronson Distinguished Alumni Award.

Well I’ve done it… I’ve finally done it. I’ve chosen the winners for my first music video memorabilia giveaway. It was super difficult to decide the lucky bunch so the process ended up taking a whole lot longer than I had planned. But alas… I think I found myself a pretty swell bunch of fans [...]
The super cool folks over at Entertainment Weekly included Ke$ha’s ‘Blow’ music video as part of their Best Of 2011 list and asked me to write up a little diddy (anecodote about the video, as opposed to a small version of the hip hop mogul) about how the concept came together. Check out the article [...]

The idea to include Trawick in the video was all Britney’s, but director Chris Marrs Piliero wasn’t sure he was so into it. “When she first hit me up, she had a basic story in mind, and she actually always originally planned to have Jason, her boyfriend, play the role, and I wasn’t super stoked [...]
