“Succumb” Saber Fight

Succumb Final Edit.mov.Still001Although I haven’t made it public on this blog yet (which is surprising for me) I am a huge Star Wars fanboy. I hope that one day I’ll able to work on or be in a Star Wars movie and since Disney is continuing the franchise my dream lives on. But in honor of Force Friday, I thought I’d share the closest that I’ve come to working on Star Wars which was the short film “Succumb” I edited back in 2009.

(Spoiler alert: It’s because I lived in that RV for a time) Why is the ninja hunting him? Who knows but it’s about as dumb as driving without car insurance.

JAM Honeymoon – A Tribute to “30 Rock”

My wife Samantha and I (Sam & Jerrett = JAM) recently celebrated our first anniversary! During our first year of marriage, I had off and on been working on our wedding and honeymoon footage. For our honeymoon we traveled to New York City and being huge 30 Rock fans, I thought it fitting that I recreate the 30 Rock intro using our photos and video from the trip to personalize it. Enjoy!
