about news filmmaking screenwriting live visuals etc.

I’m very happy to direct your attention to A Particular Tuesday, an audio-visual social-cultural visual poem… or, if you’d prefer, music video, for Norman Westberg (of New York post-everything band SWANS) for the release of his album Jasper Sits Out.

Lawrence English of Room40 asked me if I’d like to do the video back in November last year, around the particular Tuesday we were all looking at the news and feeling our hearts slowly breaking. So with this one I wanted to do something more, an 11-minute tome that spoke to what human life means on planet earth right now. It is wonderful to collaborate with people who trust you to deliver basically anything.

The film is now streaming exclusively on Tiny Mix Tapes.

p.s. Thanks Francis Thompson, Jill Rankin, Amber Stewart, and Dan Rice who all helped with the film.
