There is something beautiful and terrifying about the way grief shows up for each of us. How we can’t prepare for it and how unpredictable it is. How it encompasses us in isolation, and how it will wait, patiently, until we face it.
The three key creators of the film (Adelaide, Dunkley, Slack), met on a Friday with the intention of creating art without outside pressure or creative holds. They drank milkshakes and talked about the end of days, and the days that continue beyond them. They talked about what small details linger in our lives, piercing our isolation after loss. They spoke on the ways we found it surprisingly, and morbidly, easy to laugh in the face of death.
By Sunday, with a skeleton crew and the help of generous friends, they were shooting the film. With no money or even a written script, this was the most natural and organic filmmaking process they had ever been a part of.
This is a film for anyone who has ever lost someone close to them… or who will… so of course it’s a film for all of us.

The concept was a simple homage to the classic Dylan "Subterranean" video. We decided to give this a really loose spontaneous feel like we just stumbled upon Hozier on this freezing NYC rooftop. Huge thanks to the foggy weather, zoom lens and panty hose behind the lens to create this aesthetic. Enjoy!
PS: Andrew is one of the sweetest and kindest artists I've ever worked with. I wish nothing but the biggest success for this talent.

Had the pleasure to direct/shoot/edit/co-produce & color a performance video for this incredible song by the Liverpool based BANNERS. Getting to control so many aspects of a project has been a terrifying/challenging dream of mine for quite some time. Every stage is a new endeavor, an opportunity to express, make mistakes, embrace imperfection, and be surprised by what the piece itself wants to be.
Erica visited NYC last year when I had just purchased my camera and wanted to do some tests. She had been wanting to make a video featuring Drew for quite some time and suggested this location at Coney Island. Unfortunately, the forecast predicted rain on the one day we had time to shoot. Instead of letting my fears -of ruining my new camera system- get the best of me, we decided to lean into it and embrace the added free production value, strapping plastic bags to my handles, viewfinder, and mattebox. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Thanks to all involved.
