The Brand History



I am working with Coe Douglas, a writer, director and long-time collaborator and creative partner on a new reality based show that is completely crazy.

The show is about the life of an accomplished, award-winning Nashville songwriter who is equally infamous for his antics around Nashville. Our star is a larger than life, wild-as-hell country boy and a with a big heart and a ton of musical talent. You won’t be able to take your eyes of him.

In other words, this show is one hour of music, skirt-chasing and hell-raising.

Merry Christmas

I hope everyone has a truly Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

New Scary Movie Project

I am currently working on an Independent film with writer & director Josh Shreve about a father in search of his missing daughter who is being held and tortured by a evil cult.

This is classic horror or suspense horror and I really liked the story and we have a great location lined up to shoot at.

Josh and I have worked together quite a bit over the years. He’s an up and coming talent.

I’ll have more info on this in the new year. So, check back.

Reba Project Wrap

We just wrapped on a special about Reba McEntire which we shot in one full day at Starstruck Studios in Nashville.

I worked on this project with my friends at Big Machine Records as cinematographer and lighting director. For the video, we used a couple of Canon 5D and 60D digital video cameras.

Reba was absolutely great to work with on this project.

Look for the video soon here at my site.

Shooting In Chicago

I just finished up shooting in Chicago with my friends from o2 and Verizon Wireless. Always a good time in the Windy City.

Chicago is a great place to film. I think we ended up with a pretty great video.
