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.
