WAITING FOR STAR WARS

That time in 1999 when I set out to scalp tickets to The Phantom Menace, and had to wait in line all day with a bunch of die hard fans. I had my videocamera along with me.

Synchronizing Ratatat

Back in 2004 when Ratatat released their debut album, I thought it would be cool to direct a music video to 17 Years featuring synchronized swimmers.

Colored smoke, swimmers launching into the water from great heights – they just don’t make ’em like they used to. My plan was to pitch the band on the idea of shooting a synchronized swimming video with me, by synching some footage up to their song. However, I had no idea how well it would actually synch. This, my friends, is magic…
