Last night the Film Consortium of San Diego held the first ever San Diego Film Awards at the Horton Grand Theatre. I directed and edited the music video for Monkeys In Space “Supermodel Suitcase” which was nominated for best cinematography in the music video category.
This event would not have been possible if it wasn’t for founder of the Film Consortium Jodi Cilley, the FCSD members, and volunteers.
Certainly this festival will continue to grow, it was an honor to be a nominee for this first time event! It’s nice to know that in the future more local filmmakers and talent will have the same opporuntiy that I had last night. Lookout for the new Monkeys In Space album “Kill Your Past” coming out later this month at Facebook.com/MonkeysInSpace and you can watch the Monkeys In Space “Supermodel Suitcase” below.

My younger brother completed the 14.1 CrossFit workout this morning. The workout is 10 minutes AMRAP (as many reps as possible) of 30 double-unders, and 15 power snatches at 75lbs. This is his second attempt this week because the first video we submitted was declined due to a few details we missed. I’m so proud of him, his original attempt was 259 reps and just 3 days later he reached an official count of 267 reps! Checkout the full video below.

My buddies from Monkeys In Space put together new music video for their song ‘My Drinking Buddies Have a Rock & Roll Problem’. If you watch closely you might see a cameo appearance from me. The song is an old track but now they’ve polished it up nicely with the help of audio engineer Josh Drucker! Below checkout a live performance of the song in this video I edited back in 2010.
