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. It debuts on Sunday, July 9.
My first film, HYPE!, has been digitally remastered and had its 20th Anniversary screening in March at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival in Austin. Shout! Factory will re-release the film in September 2017. On a sad note, my heart goes out to the friends, family and fans of Chris Cornell. RIP.
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).
