In addition to having super-model good-looks and billions of dollars, I also make movies. I went to NYU’s prestigious (ie — expensive) Tisch School of the Arts and graduated with a dual degree in Film/TV and English. Here are some of the movies I had a hand in making…
THE MAN’S GUIDE TO ACQUIRING A RELATIONSHIP (WITH A WOMAN)
First, there is my 2001 16mm student film, which is more-or-less about why girls didn’t seem to like me. Though I now look at it as a bitter, frustrated rant, it was extremely popular in school and got voted into NYU’s film festival, where it was the only film to get a standing ovation DURING the screening (as opposed to during the credits). Apparently, there are a lot of bitter, frustrated guys out there… Anyway, I wrote, directed, produced, edited and starred in this one. The framing of the video is screwed up, because while NYU has more money than they know what to do with, their 16mm to digital transfer technology was to bootleg the screening with a vhs camera (I kid you not). About 30% of the film around the edges are cut off…
I’m in a sketch comedy group called Alien Silo. We get together to eat cookies and write sketches that we do nothing with. This time, though, we decided to actually film one. I think it came out pretty good (most likely because I didn’t direct or edit). I wrote and co-produced this.
With his long, golden hair, my nephew looked exactly like baby Thor. This was made solely to showcase how cute he is…
X-TREME FUN MEAT!
This was another student project. It’s a (2 minute long) fake commercial, making fun of how marketing “geniuses” just make everything EXTREME for kids. Personally, I wish my commercial was a little more extreme itself, and that the sound was mixed better, but what can you do? I wrote, produced, directed and edited this one…
LADY IN RED
This is a fake music video that my friends and I made on a lark one weekend. It was made in 2003, before doing this sort of thing was cool… (Okay. It was never cool…). I wrote, produced, directed, (unfortunately) starred and co-edited this one.
Here is another 16mm student film. It is starring myself, rocking a full jewfro, and my good college buddy, Sarju Patel of Red and Tan Productions. In this project, I was not allowed to use sound, so it’s totally silent. Fortunately, the plot shines through in the over-acting… The story behind this one was that I had a totally different idea before we were to shoot, but the original actor never showed, so I had to come up with something new on the spot. I “wrote,” directed, starred and edited this one.
This was a freelance project that I edited together in 2011.
