This video clip shows an explosive passion between two lovers, punctuated by an elegant and a contemporary choreography in the streets of Paris where buildings are changing into real waterfalls. It is an hymn to love that uses the metaphor of water for its fluidity

Cc9973657f poster

Filmed in San Cipriano, Colombia
August, 2018

Sankofa is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that translates to “go back and get it.” This 16mm film interprets an exorcism of social repression. Humanity’s passion, pain, and love are revealed through movement, light, and nature. The song “Tonada de Luna” was performed synchronously with the improvisational dance.

Short Film: ADAM & STEVE, 3min, USA, Music

C363cd18ac poster

Rising pop star Dorian Electra’s music video for Adam & Steve rewrites homophobic religious rhetoric into queer empowerment. Taking the anti-LGBTQ slogan “God made Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve” and subverting it, Dorian instead imaginatively re-writes biblical “history” through a subversive queer lens. Co-directed by Electra and creative partner Weston Allen, “Adam & Steve” explores martyrdom, conversion therapy, and sexual repression in this daring and fantastical video.

Based on a Greek mythology,
Icarus and his father, Daedalus, were imprisioned by King Minos. The only way to escape from the island was to fly. Daedalus began to gather feathers from birds and used wax to glue the feathers together which later became wings.

“Solitary” represents Icarus’ state of mind when he was in confinement.

Beauty surrounds a young woman getting cosmetic injections.

Director Statement

Videos of cosmetic procedures are common online marketing tools and frequently posted on social media. What none of the videos provide is any emotional context for the people (mostly women) getting the treatments. Whether these women are empowered or controlled with regard to their image is open to interpretation but, in the film, I want the viewer to experience emotional context as they sit beside a woman actually undergoing the procedure.

Diving in the dark cenotes of Mexico can be a great experience for some, the connection with the magic of the Mayan jungle is felt at all times within these caves. Beauty can be bizzarre.
