As video has gained more prominence in live performance, I have been lucky to work with talented directors and designers to incorporate moving picture elements into theatrical works, and have also made short promos for various productions.
 
 
A Doll's House
Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House," directed by Ellen Hemphill for Duke Theater Studies. I designed video elements for the 10 foot by 24 foot back wall of the set, which was used to explore the main character's psychic turbulence. Original music by Allison Leyton-Brown, set design by Torry Bend, lighting design by Andy Parks, costume design by Bill Clarke.

The Jade City Chronicles Vol. 1: The Super Spectacular Badass Herald M.F. Jones
I directed and edited this extended video preview for Howard Craft's original play The Jade City Chronicles Vol 1: The Super Spectacular Badass Herald M.F. Jones, directed by Jay O'Berski for his company Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern, of which I'm proud to me a member. This preview, written by the playwright, was made for a conference a few months before the cast started rehearsing the actual play. Videography by Alex Maness.

Out of the Blue
An original work by Ellen Hemphill and Archipelago Theatre which explores the sudden cataclysms, events, and transformations in our lives. Video elements included opening and closing montages, a character's story told on film, and various scenic elements such as a tree going through all four seasons and a sexily melting popsicle. Made in collaboration with Ellen Hemphill, Jan Chambers, Nor Hall, Allison Leyton-Brown, Mark Dendy, and Jesse Belsky.

Complete performance:
Fistful of Love
I directed and edited this short film that was shown during performances of Fistful of Love, an adaptation of Charles Mee's Big Love by Jay O'Berski and Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern. The show tells the tale of 50 brothers coerced into marrying their 50 cousins. The movie was shown at the climax of the production and tells the story of the fateful wedding day and the tragedy that ensued. The live performance featured actor Tom Marriott singing Daniel Johnston's "True Love Will Find You in the End"; this version uses Beck's cover. Videography by Matt Hedt and Jessye McDowell.
