Lately, I’ve been spending my days down at Brain Farm working on a few new and exciting projects. Here’s the first clip that’s been released from Quiksilver’s latest campaign. The super slow motion shots are made possible by the Phantom HD , editing by Tate MacDowell, original score by Andy Sorge, and the surfing is from best surfers in the world.

Remembering “Bali Coffee”

•10/13/2009 • 1 Comment

The following are a few pictures from my holga.

Bali was a blur of memories that ranged between the most relaxed I’ve ever been in my life, to the most adventurous. It’s funny that achieving maximum relaxation doesn’t make for very good stories, isn’t it?

Upon arriving in Bali we rented a car. Although it’s cheeper than getting a driver, it’s not highly recommendable. Driving stick with your left hand, on the wrong side of the road is one thing. Matching the chaotic driving style of the locals may take years from your life but adds to the adventure!


No matter how crazy everything seems around you, the scooters with five passengers passing you on the outside or the way the edge of your bed seems to drop off the end of the earth and into the sea, there’s a feeling of… serenity? I’m not sure what exactly it is or how to explain it. But as I look through these pictures, I get that feeling back.



I once read a quote in a surf magazine that said, “An adventure is a vacation that’s gone terribly wrong.” If you’re looking for a quick adventure, just buy some crappy gas in a water bottle from this kid and drive as far away from civilization as possible!

ASR Live: New age of guerrilla marketing

•09/22/2009 • Leave a Comment

I was recently hired to shoot and edit a web series for Action Sports Retailers (the premier action sports industry trade show in San Diego,CA.)
The concept is pretty simple, set up an edit bay in the closest hotel room possible, shoot video all day and edit sometime between shooting and sleeping. I was able to shoot, edit and post over 31 clips in total over the span of about 4 days and have them posted to various sites (youtube, ASR, etc.) before people arrived at their desks on Monday.

Check out all of the clips by clicking the logo…

Week Sauce- JJ Thomas & Todd Richards

•08/27/2009 • 1 Comment

The third episode in a Death Cookie Ent. series that has no goals or plot except to video fun stuff all day and edit out the crap (or at least some of the crap).
This week in the sauce, it’s just another June gloom day of surfing in Encinitas, California with professional snowboarders JJ Thomas and Todd Richards.

Behind the scenes of “Week Sauce” episode three

•06/30/2009 • 2 Comments

With a catchy title like “Week Sauce” it would be pretty cool to make one once a “WEEK.” But, whatever… I promised myself that I wouldn’t be one of those bloggers that constantly apologizes every time that they come back from vacation with posts like, “Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve been doing a technology cleanse while meditating with monks in Whogivesacrapistan!”
So, get ready for episode three all you “Week sauce” fans out there (yup, I pluralize fan.) Nine weeks since the last installment and this sequel is probably going to put “Transformers 2”, “Twilight 2” and “Year One” to shame! (I assume that “Year One” is the sequel to “The Passion of the Christ?”)
Episode three starring Todd Richards and JJ Thomas, should be sick!

Richards paddles out to his own reef. (undisclosed location)

Richards over falls
Todd had better shots, but wanted me to save them for the more “endemic print magazines”

JJ spray
JJ Thomas was knee boarding all day, but decided to give standing uppppppp a try.

JJ left spray
Thomas dropppppppppped in left (crapppppppp, time to clean the keyboard)

JJ head crusher
I’ve never seen someone so happy while mere seconds from getting his skull crushed. JJ Thomas is fearless.

Mr. & Mrs. Cactus might get a cameo in there too.
