INTERVIEWS

XBOX Head Phil Spencer Talks XBOX One & First Party Exclusives
Cinematographer

This was one of the more random interviews i've shot. Located inside the conference rooms at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, XBOX was giving press a first look at the new XBOX One. It was basically an open bar arena party with flashy displays and exclusive demos. 

This however is just a simple interview with Phil Spencer and a lot of 4k raw discussion. It's long too.

Day In The Life: Galantis at Marquee Vegas
Cinematographer

Back to Vegas for the first night of Galantis' (Style of Eye + one of the guys from Miike Snow)  residency at Marquee Nightclub inside the Cosmopolitan. Pretty extravagant event as far as Vegas superclubs go. At least I didn't have to walk very far for Secret Pizza...

Before You Go On: A-Trak
Director of Photography

So on that same trip to Sacramento, I met up with A-Trak before his set and brought along one of our producers who asked him some rapid fire questions in this one take interview. Fools Gold Records and their artists have been a common fixture amongst my work, and it is always great to spend sometime with Mr. Goldbar.

VICE flew moreDillon and I out to TBD Festival in Sacramento to shoot a few pieces for THUMP on what may have been the hottest fucking week of the year. Nonetheless, we sat down with some of the headliners and asked them about their guilty pleasure tracks.

What Is Future Bass Anyways?
Director of Photography

In Sacramento, we asked a bunch of people about Future Bass, who clearly didn't know anything about Future Bass. That didn't really stop anyone from answering though...

Thump Specials: EDC Behind the Scenes
Cinematographer

Flew out to Vegas to meet up with the Insomniac production team as they prepared for the first stop of the 2015 Electric Daisy Carnival. It was kind of a trip to see production elements just sprawled about the enormous warehouse.

Highlights included a 20ft ceramic salamander, comically large Radio Flyer that you need a ladder to get in, and several boxes of disco balls that were just lost in a corner.

Symbols Showcase with Kastle
Director / Cinematographer

I head over to Kastle's downtown LA loft to discuss the previous night's Symbols Recordings Showcase and the effect the city has had on him as an artist. He makes a damn fine cup of coffee.

Record Store Day with Fred Armisen
Director / Cinematographer

Fred Armisen stopped by my friend Zane's record store, Mount Analog, to play a few cover songs for people shopping on Record Store Day 2013. I asked him about the first record he ever bought. He answered and then played, Train in Vain.

Pro tip: If you are ever in Highland Park, visit Mount Analog and ask for Frank. 


 

Miami Vice with 12th Planet
Director / Cinematographer

I spent a day following 12th Planet and crew around Miami during Ultra 2013. We went from a yacht party to a bus party to a sold out 5,000 capacity mega club. I'm still surprised they let me in with my skateboard.

Video features 12th Planet, Skrillex, Crookers, Baauer,  Jessie Andrews, and more.

Austin Party Weekend with Antwon

We start our day by having a beer with Antwon before his set at SUPER PARTY in Austin, TX. If you didn't already recognize it, Antwon has a big ass phone. He is also one of my favorite rappers.


 


IHEARTCOMIXCON

It's not an interview, but here I am checking out Flynn's Arcade in downtown San Diego, part of the TRON: Legacy installation during Comic Con. It was fucking awesome.
