The party itself was hype, so It was a pleasure to do it. Would love to do more.

Music Video: Kill Me Now

late last year I was fortunate enough to film another music video.

Kill Me Now
– local Toronto Artist: Xib

Director and editor: Justin Mckoy
Prouducer: Shanaise Williams
D.o.P.: Xavier Lewis (Yours truly)

You can find the track here: http://christmasinbethlehem1.bandcamp.com/album/xoxo-vol-2 (Track 15) as well as more info with them.

Story: Guy goes to party, sees his gf dong things he wished she didn’t do, finds out she has gone missing, begins to search for her.

Earlier this month (May 2015), I was recipient of Centennial College’s Donny award for “music video of the year”. For me this was a very much needed pick me up. Last year I submitted Trust me and I really thought I would’ve won for best editing. But in hindsight, I really should have won.

Hahaha.

Just kidding, I do see why I didn’t. But I felt a little defeated this past year on the lows. This being as good as it is, and winning for this award really gave me a lot of a pick me up that was in dire need. So please, do enjoy and I will have more stuff for you as soon as possible.

Shoutout to the Donny winners of 2015 and those nominated!

Trust Me (I’m An artist)

Short film: Cora is an artist trapped in the vortex of her own solitude and her only way out is to let people in. Her art is an escape mechanism from her OCD, she just wants people to understand it. To understand her.

The Dom

I really just love action films so I made this in a way as a tribute to the simplicity of it. I wrote it, shot it, directed it, and edited it. I even made a cameo. The Assignment was to tell a story in under 8 mins.

When Domonic Lions’ best friend is unexpectedly killed in a drive by shooting, it is up to him to find the one responsible. Dom goes on a relentless search to find the answers he’s looking for, and bring justice to his fallen friend.

Completed in 2009 for Humber College Assignment.

The Meeting

I completed this in 2009 for a Humber College assignment. In addition to acting in it, I wrote this (partially) and shot a few scenes. I even did a promotional (fake) dvd cover for the behind the scene footage. The concept behind this was to have two people meet up and tell a story around that.

Amp’d

 

I was inspired to make a video based on my favorite drink (at the time) Amp’d by Mountain Dew… so I did just that… It works man. I didn’t edit it I just performed the stunts and Selected the shots. This isn’t my greatest video, but I am not embarrassed by it. “Cut on action” video completed for a school assignment at Humber College in 2009
