Bames Jond: The Scarlet Gamble

This is my all-time favorite of the movies I made in High School. Not only does it have most of my friends from High School starring in it, it is also the biggest in scope, broadest in comedy, best shot and edited (still, not great), and has two...

The Greatest of Warriors

You may be sensing a pattern here. For a long time the only orchestral soundtrack I had was Jurassic Park, and naturally that music ended up in most of these High School Home Movies. This short also marks the beginning of some obsessions of mine. Black and White...

Oh Boy. Pokemon.

I’m trying to start this blog cataloging all my various creative endeavors in somewhat of a chronological order, and sometimes I come across projects I completely forgot about. I’ve made music videos before, but for the sake of not embarrassing my dear friend Doug Jenkins too much, I...

House Man
If you have the stomach for it, here’s a terrible-yet-well-loved High School Home Movie of mine where I was trying to apply the three act structure I’d learned about in English class to another movie my friends and I were making up and filming as we went along…

Lego WWII

When I was a kid (elementary school era), the most marvelous Lego set of all time was released to children with rich parents. This Lego set was called “Lego Studios”, and it was beautiful. It had two sky-scrapers, an awesome back-drop, a dinosaur, a film crew, and the...

Boring Conversations

Boring Conversations
This is a non-short. One day my friends and I were hanging out. I brought my parent’s digital camera over and our plan was to shoot a movie. As it was, until much, much later my movies were always made up on the spot. And on this particular...

Once You Go Fat, You Never Go Back
