As of March 2023:
Finishing up a few pieces on the sculptor Louise Nevelson for The Louise Nevelson Foundation and
Lynn Gilbert, the photographer of the iconic portait of Nevelson.
Just been hired to edit a trailer for a feature documentary on a pioneer of modern dance.
I've been providing postproduction support for a complex feature documentary on Jazz.
And working with MM Serra on 2 pieces on a couple of interesting artists; Carolee Schneeman and JJ Lebel. M M always has a distinctive take on her subjects...
Still working with Peter Christ and Shout Out Communications creating award winning videos, animations, and interactive programs for healthcare and the arts.
Past clients include Amgen, Pfizer, and Bristol Myers Squibb.
Other recent work over the past few years:
Still editing and occasionally shooting music videos for Dick Connette's Storysound Records
including a couple of Loudon Wainwright III songs
and two for Daisy Press https://www.daisyvoice.com/ featuring material from her recent cd "You are the Flower."
Dick's got an amazing roster of talent and it's always a pleasure to work with them and with Dick.
Was part of the production team shooting a music video for Dick Connette at the fabled
Power Station recording studio in August of 2021
The song features an amazing set of voices: Rachelle Garniez, Chaim Tannenbaum, Suzy Roche, Loudon Wainwright, and many many others.
The main 2 cameras were helmed by Albie Mitchell and Jaime Mitchell while I manned the locked down camera, adjusting position in between takes. And I edited the piece with the help of Rachelle and Dick...
Been a while since I've edited a scripted piece with actors, so it's been an adventure editing and polishing Alan Brasington's THE POEM OF MY LIFE, a one man show written and performed by Alan. Limited coverage pushed my video and audio editing skills to a new level utilizing some amazing features in Adobe Premiere.
Directed by Martin Spinelli and Alan.
I did an initial edit in NY and then travelled down to Sarasota, FL to finish the edit.
Recently finished working with Steve Brand on the Blu-Ray and DVD of the restoration of his 1984 documentary KADDISH
Steve's been working with IndieCollect for a few years on the restoration. There were about 10 problems that IndieCollect had been unable to fix. I was able to sit in on a few DaVinci Resolve sessions and fix these problems... One solution in particular was pure magic. Was able to fix a jumpcut embedded in the film source...
The restoration premiered at Lincoln Center in January, 2022 as part of the New York Jewish Film Festival...
And the DVD and streaming are being handled by Kino Lorber and the DVD is available on Amazon
Shot a music video with Patrick Miller on the other camera at "The Cutting Room" for Luis Accorsi. Was a fun couple of hours but I do sometimes feel like I'm getting too old for this sh*t.
Went out to Morsches on the south shore of Long Island to shoot an event on the beach featuring freshly harvested oysters for a new lifestyle website. Shot on the Iphone Pro 12 with the DJI OM4 gimbal... Pretty amazing for a smartphone and stabilizer.
Also edited a video that documented a recent gallery show shot by Coleen Fitzgibbon featuring more Iphone footage shot with the DJI gimbal. Scary how good that stuff looks...
and still helping with Petina Cole's YouTube channel. One video in particular keeps racking up the views. 4.6 million and counting.
