Intertwining Our Lives: Growing Up

This short docu-film interviews recent college graduates who will explore their childhoods, leading up to where they are in their lives now. Their expectations as children are not reflected by reality.

2014

Fecäldol - Almost Everything You Need (WITH BLOOPERS)

This sketch was a creation based around the idea of fecal transplants. Take a moment to look it up and once you realize how disgusting a poop milkshake is, you'll understand why I was compelled to make this.

A parody and combination of Calvin Klein underwear and erectile disfunction advertisements.

2014

Confusion (In Real Time)

Originally recorded digitally, placed on a used VHS tape, and recorded once again through CRT televisions, this video shows the artist recounting and regurgitating of the memories, feelings, and experiences of watching other works.

The subject shows literal confusion, detachment, and a sense of loss from these memories as shown in visuals.

2013

Rubber Audience Adaptation

A short adaptation on the scenes involving "the audience " from Quentin Dupieux's film, Rubber. This audience is watching another audience watch them instead of a tire with telekinetic killing abilities.

"There are a lot of layers to this."

"It's almost too conceptual to follow, but I love it."

RE: [5 Obstructions | Guy Ben-Ner's Stealing Beauty]

This is a response to Guy Ben-Ner's "Stealing Beauty", in which he filmed an eighteen-minute 'sitcom' entirely in an Ikea. In addition to being a response, I was given five obstructions by Timothy Kelly, based off the film, "The Five Obstructions", when making this video.

Human Wizard [DIRECTOR'S CUT | de Leon Edit]

A collaborative project shot and produced in early 2012.

Here, I directed actors and edited down this version of the short film.

2012

Experiment 01125

Created as a way to play with composite 2D & 3D visuals with live-action footage.

Originally thought was to think about how technology could be an invasion or a forced intrusion into someone's life.
