Creative Direction - Composition - Magic
When I was 8 years old I made a list of everything I wanted to be when I grew up. The list was long.; composer, clown, scientist, painter, chemist, poet, writer, filmmaker.
At the top of the list was "Magician".
Stage Magicians at the turn of the century created everything within their act. They made the art for the promotional posters, sewed their costumes, invented and made their contraptions to perform their tricks. They were Masters in their craft of entertainment. George Melies took the craft to another level of art when he discovered the camera. I've used the exact tricks George Melies invented within Momento Mori and Danse Macabre.
I started down a path learning what I thought were magic tricks; video editing, then VJing, which led to lighting, then lasers... never expecting it would lead into a career in stage production. I simply wanted to make Magic. Aside from traveling around performing stage tricks I use the off time filling my house with things that make me appear to be a mad scientist. I use those things to pursue film and music interests. Sometimes I explode pianos. Or at least make it appear that I do.
