Hard to focus on my day job in times like these. So I made this.
Haven’t posted in a while, so here’s an oldie but goodie:
October 1, 2011 – the Occupy Wall Street march to the Brooklyn Bridge. As marchers on the road level were trapped and then arrested by the police, many of us on the walkway above took videos of the arrests. And then the police showed up and forced us off the walkway. As I was filming this, I heard a familiar tune and musician GioSafari walked into my shot. So I kept rolling and stayed with him. Serendipity ensued, resulting in this documentary music video.
In 2008, I made an ad as a volunteer for the Obama campaign, using a truck as a metaphor for the country and where it was going. During the campaign, candidate Obama used a similar metaphor, so I updated the ad with his comment.
The original version of the ad was called Truckers for Obama.
I made this ad for a contest “Obama in 30 Seconds”, held by MoveOn.org in early 2008. It’s a riff on Bush’s claim that “I’m the decider”: Here, an audience member responds to Obama’s line that our nation is of, by, and for the people by shouting out “We’re the deciders!” … and Obama picks up on it.
