Music Video for Patrick Stump
Concept, Director, Producer, Editor

Patrick wanted something different and unique and was up for anything.  When he agreed to this concept, I was elated and terrified.  Finding and pulling these people together was quite a challenge (and people thought I was crazy when I started hunting for a 3-legged dog).  Patrick didn't know exactly what we were going to do until the day of the shoot, and I tried to keep him as removed as possible from everyone until he was on camera - so they could have that first moment together on film.  I was very fortunate that he allowed himself to be put in such a vulnerable position for his own music video - doing new stuff for the first time on camera with these experts.  I also asked him Not to practice off-camera (he learned stuff fast - by the time he was done with this he could speed stack, yo-yo, and nunchuku with the best of them). 

This video has over a million views on YouTube and lots of nice comments.  And the little girl doing the stomach rolls is my daughter.
