Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday. A few weeks ago I spent a couple days in the desert. One of those days was the Halestorm video with lots of fire and the second day in the desert was spent “playing” with fire and burning expensive things to the ground making the  Belly “No Option” music video.  Honestly, it’s all a blur at this point what video I did and in what order but I know the videos were shot in a short amount of time with very little pre-production…and LOTS of ideas.  In any case, this was my attempt at producing director Daniel Kaufman’s vision into a music video.   Be advised, Lyrical content/language is NSFW.

Thank you to my team at Anthem Films. You are all amazing. #ONELOVE
Big thanks to my entire crew. I really appreciate all of your hard work & talents, and I am beyond grateful for your patience getting safely back home.  It was a pleasure working with Tiara & Hobby and an absolute treat to meet Juliana… and thank you for coming out to my rawk show!
