GURU DUSH "Lover of Your Own Body" Directed by Dusan Sekulovic 
Shot on the iPhone 7 Plus, on a $50 dollar budget, the entirety of which was used to purchase the white sweatpants, "Lover of Your Own Body" stars Guru Dush, a fake guru turned real guru after a bunch of people on Facebook become obsessed with him. Guru Dush believes that song and dance can have transcendental effects on humans, so he decided to become a pop-star and sing about things he cares deeply about. The director, Dusan Sekulovic, was inspired to shoot this song based on the considerable physical resemblance he was blessed to share with the Guru himself.

Ali "Full House Rap" Directed by Ali Alkhafaji 
I bought a Mac in 2011 & started recording music in my living room. Once I learned how to sample music, I thought how funny it would be to use the Full House theme. I sped it up & added my own drums to it. The writing process was pretty straightforward - act like Kanye & talk about Full House. I made a conscious effort to avoid any profanity since that wasn't very Danny Tanner. 

I produced, wrote, & recorded the song in about 4-5 hours.
Luckily my friend, Roshan Murthy, was a film student at UT. He had access to all of the camera equipment & served as the Director of Photography. I told him the concept would be us dancing in front of the graffiti wall & watching tv. We held a casting call on Facebook, then I called & texted some friends to be extras. 

We shot the whole video in about 4-5 hours (same amount of time it took to make the song). I paid everyone in mimosas & ham sandwiches. Needless to say, we were all pretty drunk by the end of the shoot.

SIP SIP "Rippin in the Kitchen" Directed by Jono Foley 
Produced and shot over 3 years, this party-packed music video was originally a couple of jokes that got made into a reality. In painstaking heat the dedicated band and crew built sets, cleaned houses and pounded 40 oz malt liquor beverages, while we made this multi-concept video with almost zero resources, a lot of imagination and about $500.

Talkies "I Hate Myself and Everyone Else" Directed by Zachary Scott 
I've known Ray the front man of the Talkies since I was fifteen. We hadn't collaborated in four or five years, so I was stoked to make this! It ended up raining on the day which everyone was a total trouper about. We strapped my buddy Charlie's Camera who was the DP into the bed of his truck and lined up all the actors and fallowed Ray running down the street being a monster. Which is why I think the pay off at the end is so funny to me, even now when I watch it. It's like everyone gets what's coming to them.

Christofi (feat. AYER) "Temptation" Directed by Dawson Taylor 
Who said Sasquatch has to be lonely? This music video follows Sasquatch as he romanticizes about a young hiker who happens to travel through his humble neck of the woods.

Whiskey Shivers "Cluck Ol' Hen" Directed by John Valley
This is my second collaboration with the band. The creature required about five hours of prep and then we shot with him for another 12 hours. He (John Orr) was a peach to work with. in order to keep the sweat consistent in the room we had to shoot without the AC on.

CAPYAC "Talk About" Directed by Rob Wadleigh 
Originally pitched without a narrative, this piece gradually took shape as a sort of gender-bending romance between two digital abominations dancing their way across LA.
