I recently had the pleasure of directing a promo for the Ghostface Killah album 12 Reasons to Die. The album is being released in two versions: one produced by Adrian Younge, and another by Apollo Brown — “The Brown Tape” available exclusively on cassette. More than anything, the shoot was an exercise in creating a […]
A few months ago my friend Andrew got in touch asking if I was interested in doing a music video for Styles P. I had done an earlier promo for his label and we’ve kept a running dialogue of music videos over the last year or so. Shooting this was my first opportunity to go […]
Remember this? Here it is in motion in a video I created for the song “Aura Go” by my friends Jee-Day.
Been looking forward to today for awhile now: my music video for Candice Anitra‘s “Love Sick” just dropped. Passion and the Batcave. Here’s the clip:
Though we shot back in July, this chilly winter is the perfect time to finally show of the video I shot for Thaddeus Clark’s Hi-8. I’ve had the album for months as well, and if you’re looking for your new headphone masterpiece, head on over to hellabasic.com and cop one for free. Trust me, it […]

After a number of scout sessions, we finally got a shoot in the can; the music video for Thaddeus Clark’s “Downtown Connect.” Gambler to Dux: How do you feel, do you feel strong? Frank Dux: I feel good. It was an adventure.

We had been talking/planning. But it was one of those maybe, maybe not kind of things. Never the right window. Until […]
There are heels, a big old off-camera fan, and soft wafty lights. This is a promo I shot for HBO’s True Blood via their ad agency Campfire. The phone number was active for a year or so, taking the sultry vibe to another level.
After an earlier doc piece, lead singer DJ McNanny and I collaborated on what became a pet project – shooting footage from time to time vaguely in service of a music video. In between, we ended up with a branded song, or an ad for a music video, or a two-minute thingy (technical term) that […]
