Orca Life - “Fall In” from Among Waves

Experimental music video I directed for Chris Roberts’ latest Orca Life album.

The video experiments I made and used for the Among Waves album art are the same ones that I then used to create this video, this time overlaying my experimental footage over footage that Chris had taken himself.

Because Photoshop and After Effects have the same options for layer modes, I treated this video the same way as the album artwork, in the hopes that I could create as true of a visual companion to that artwork as possible.

Here is the artwork and final packaging I designed for Chris Roberts’ latest Orca Life album.

The artwork is the product of video experiments I was making (more on that later…), combined with photographs of Chris’. It also features the "Jesse" logo I illustrated a few months ago.

Also our first time at Otherworldly Mystics using a 4-panel J-Card for the tape as opposed to the traditional 3-panel, hence the wide format of the art here.

Laura and Mike Allred with the Transmission postcard and cassette. Somehow someones face is blocked in each picture, so here’s both.

The Allreds have been my art idols for some time now, and I was more than shocked when Mike said he loved my film last year; I finally got the chance to meet them today at Long Beach ComicCon but holy shit was I nervous…

I’m still shaking.

Nicest people in the world though.

I’ve been watching the Incredible Hulk TV series, where David Banner has a new last name every episode… but this one left me confused….

Today is my birthday. Here’s a new-to-me grizzly photo of me from this time last year, taken by my friend Alfonso during our time at Ghostcamp.
I wasn’t able to make the trip to Vermont this year, due to many a circumstance, but i did make some super secret videos that you’ll probably never see that will be screened there.
Other than that, sorry I haven’t posted much of late, I’ve just been working full time on shows I can’t talk about yet and then when I’m home i’m working on projects for musicians that I can’t talk about yet.
My life is full of secrets, sorry.
