     My first film, HYPE! is now out on Blu-Ray through Shout! Factory. The disk includes a digitally remastered film plus a new 15-minute bonus feature, "Hype! 20 Years After," with interviews with members of Mudhoney, Soundgarden, The Fastbacks, record producers Jack Endino and Steve Fisk, manager Susan Silver, and photographer Charles Peterson. "Hype!" recently had its 20th Anniversary screening in Seattle, which was a blast. Excellent summary of the evening written up by Sean Nelson in "The Stranger."

     I just completed several years of intensive work as Executive Producer, Editor and Writer of THE DEFIANT ONES, a 4-part HBO special about the partnership and musical worlds of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. The documentary is directed by Allen Hughes (Book of Eli, Menace2Society, American Pimp), and co-edited and co-written by Lasse Jarvi, who edited my films INFAMY and SURFWISE.

     I am proud to be associated with TRANSFATTY LIVES which won Audience Awards for Best Documentary at the Tribeca, Milan, and American Film Festivals. The film, which I helped produce, is an irreverent and emotional film about living with ALS directed by Patrick O'Brien (a.k.a. DJ TransFatty). The film can be downloaded on most digital platforms, including Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, and Google Play.

     My most recent documentary feature, LEVITATED MASS, is also available on iTunes, Netflix, and DVD. The documentary is about artist Michael Heizer and his massive sculpture at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Whether you're a fan of modern art, or fascinated by outstanding feats of engineering, this story is a lot bigger than the 340-ton boulder that grabbed headlines.

    Other recent projects include several commercials I've directed for Guinness beer at their St. James's Gate brewery in Dublin, a short film to celebrate LACMA's 50th anniversary, and a series of short film portraits of citizens living in Northern Wisconsin's Lake Superior region, who have been actively fighting a proposed factory farm (CAFO).
