TurnHere Video: Minted.com

Executive Producer: TurnHere
Director, Shooter, editor: Alexa Inkeles
A seasonal promotional video for Minted.com.

I worked closely with the owner of Minted.com, Mariam, to hand craft this video. She and her team wrote a loose script, then I played with Alison’s (a Minted employee) performance and had some fun with the greeting card products. In the end, both Mariam and I were very happy with this video.

“Fantastic work – I love it!” – Mariam Naficy, Owner of Minted.com
“…I like how ambitious you are visually…” – Andrew Bennett, Director of Business Development at TurnHere

Wonderlick Music Video

Wonderlick approached Lauren Tabak and I and asked if we could produce a low budget music video with the concept being diverse groups of people making out. The given time line from start to finish was 3 weeks. We spent one week bouncing around different ideas, two days writing the stories of each couple’s scene, one day shooting, and one week editing.
This video was shot in HD on the HVX200 with a skeleton crew of 5, including Lauren the Producer and me, the Director/DP.
Enjoy!
