Not to toot my own horn, but BEEP BEEP. That’s right, our Vampire Energy Slayer spot was victorious in Seattle City Light’s first ever video contest! Big thanks to all of you who voted for my team’s entry. Check out what Seattle City Light had to say about our first place video:
“I enjoyed the creativity and spirit of this video. Plus, it was very educational,” contest judge Megan Erb from the Seattle Channel said. “I’d recommend this flick to all my friends!”

I had my friend Pat kick a soccer ball at me. This is the resulting picture.
I was trying out my new tripod at Gasworks Park this afternoon and was looking for subjects to photograph when she walked by. I can’t remember her name (I think it was Lisa or Lindsay or something with an L), but she was kind enough to sit down for a minute to let me take her picture. The bleak weather in the background matched up well with her intense gaze and blank expression. All in all I think it makes for a pretty great picture.
This fountain. I want one.
Check out this video I made for Our Schools Coaltion, an organization dedicated to supporting and encouraging great teachers in public schools. The shoot took place at Franklin High School in Seattle, and I had about 10 minutes with each of the kids. Not exactly ideal, but they were good sports and gave great responses. It took a while to figure out how to connect the various interviews, but the Mad Libs strategy seemed to work well. The spot was shot on a friend’s HVX200 and edited on Final Cut Pro. Lemme know what you think.
This video was produced by Our Schools Coalition, a Seattle-based organization made up of Seattle Public School parents, local employers, community volunteers and taxpayers. Our Schools Coalition is working to increase student learning and support and attract great teachers. Above all we are passionate supporters of public education because, after all, it’s about our students, our teachers, and our future.
