Music and filming live performances has played a great part in my filmmaking career. Having lived in Music City USA -Nashville, TN - I was privileged to have worked on some amazing music videos: John Fogerty, Bill Engvall, John Michael Montgomery, Michael Ball, Travis Tritt, Dwight Yokham,The Lynns, Michael Peterson...to name a few. It is a joy to film performances as well as create promo videos and EPK's for bands and orchestras. I also create music videos and music montages for non-profit conservation organizations as a method to convey their message.
Sinatra and Me: we shot this video during the recording at East-West Studios in Los Angeles. A great recording location - with wonderful acoustics!
An Englishman in Love in LA: I was tasked to re-cut this video to new lyrics and orchestration. The song is included on Richard's soon to be released album "Richard Shelton."
Hefti Plays HEFTI
A short promo I created for Hefti Plays Hefti - an amazing new jazz orchestra headed by Neal Hefti's son, Paul, who has re-orchestrated some of his father's iconic music from the '40s, '50s and '60s especially for this 9-piece orchestra. An amazing show. Anyone familiar with the Batman theme tune?

HEFTI PLAYS HEFTI EPK
The Hefti Plays Hefti EPK (Electronic Press Kit) promotes Paul Hefti and his new orchestra. The intro is the same as the above promo but extends to give a brief history of Neal's iconic music and showcases in detail Paul's latest orchestration and the orchestra's recent live, entertaining performances that are not to be missed!
POWDER - LIVE PERFORMANCE
A wonderful live performance from Powder at the premiere of the successful documentary film See What I'm Saying at the Egyptian Theater, Hollywood, California.
The rap Rockfish Barotrauma was written and performed by Ray Troll and Russell Wodehouse. We put it at the end of an educational video titled Is Barotrauma Keeping You Up? Try Getting Down with Recompression! It went viral.
