In the wilds of Pittsburgh we shot this frenetic stand-off between two of the best actors working in TV today. We also had an incredible day Mad-Maxing some ATVs, dangling off a picture car, and working with tremendous Producer Christ Stoerchle, the illustrious Andrew Turman, and unstoppable AD James Heth.

ABC Family - Mondo
Had the incredible pleasure of helping ABC Family rebrand their network as a fresh, vibrant, and authentic home for "becomers". I helmed 5 separate teams (2 photography, 3 A/V), shooting over two days, with a crew totaling nearly 220 people. It was an All-Star week-end, working with some of my favorite peeps in every category: DPs Andrew Turman & Rhet Bear, Producer Chris Stoerchle, AD Todd Lent, The Rhoads, Andrew Stanton, Dave Besdesky, Tim Shinkle, Cara McKenny, Susan Harris, my entire LK family, and a client who was actually excited to take a risk.

TNT Drama - 'Boom' Campaign
TNT was introducing their new 'Boom' campaign, but didn't want cliche boisterous deliveries. The emotional delivery had to be honest. So I created an 'Inside the Actors Studio' setting in which I asked Talent personal questions about their lives (How did you feel when your son was born? What will be the last thing you say before you die? Etc.) And the only answer the could give me back was the word...

A&E - Shining A Light Promo
It's always good when you can work on a powerful project with a fantastic cause. Shining A Light features some of the biggest names in music, raising awareness about the problem of racism in America. Working with producers Phil Erney & Rayna Saslove, as well as DP David Kruta was an absolute pleasure. A good chance to do great work for an incredible cause.

TruTV - Rebrand Mondo
Tru wanted to rebrand themselves from "the car crash network" to the fresh new home for comedy. I wrote and directed over 30 IDENTS for talent like the Lucas Brothers, Impractical Jokers, Friends of the People, Chili from TLC and many more. Backed by Phil Erney producer-extraordinaire and Creative Director Daniel Dorneman we laughed our way through Atlanta, NYC, and LA.

TNT - Falling Skies Teaser
TNT wanted to tease the new season of Falling Skies and the imminent betrayal by the Skitter race. Shot at 160 FPS, the actual take lasted less than 5 seconds in realtime. (The rest of the time was spent waiting on the Skitter to come out of his space-trailer.)

TNT Drama - Procedurals Mondo
TNT came to us looking for a minimalist aesthetic that would allow their Procedurals programming to really stand out as the stars that they are. Thanks to Producer Chris Stoerchle, DP Andrew Turman, AD Todd Lent, Editor Zak Kissinger and many more - what we delivered was criminally good. (See what I did there? Yep. That creative.)

TNT 'Rizolli & Isles' Beauty
Two strong beautiful crimefighters and bold graphics package - what more could you ask for? Part of TNT's minimalist movement, the Rizolli & Isles (and subsequent 'Perception' shoot) put the focus square on the talent that made the network what it is.

ulive - Upfront / Newfront
To fully celebrate the breadth and power of the Scripps library of on-air and online programming, ulive asked us to film unique interviews, live action sequences, and beauty footage to give their Upfront sizzle a powerful pop.
