WORLDSTARRR


The last update to this now-decrepit cyberspace was damn near six months ago — a shameful amount of time for anyone wishing to stay relevant in today’s digital carousel.

Why the radio silence? Well, as opposed to 2017 where I was focused on simply cutting my teeth by shooting as much as possible (2017 Year in Review), this year I’ve been focusing on trying to take that next step in my filmmaking career by getting some actual funding for my projects — an increasingly difficult task in a world stuck in a state of perpetual belt-tightening.

There have been promising advances, but alas, I’m playing the long game and you’ll all have to wait another day for my fully-funded masterpiece.

Today, however, I’m cracking open the tomb to share some brand new work, another product of my guerilla filmmaking escapades:

WORLDSTARRR is a 30-second spec-ad for WorldstarHipHop.com, a popular content-aggregating blog that regularly features public fight videos (usually accompanied by someone yelling “Worldstarrr“), music videos and assorted content targeted to young audiences.

RED BULL 30 YEARS

redbull30-vimeo

Earlier this year, through a random late night Google binge, I discovered that Red Bull was founded in Austria in 1987. I found it interesting that the youthful brand had been around for so long and I immediately began brainstorming ideas for a 30-second spec ad that combined those two opposing elements (age with vitality) while celebrating Red Bull’s 30 years in business.

Red Bull. Giving wings (to you & yours) for 30 years.
