Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1 DVD promo commercials!

August 23rd, 2011

Directed by Adult Swim’s own Nicholas Ingkatanuwat, produced by Lear Bunda and shot by myself along with Brad Kaye and Keith Roberts. Styling by Abby Morris, wardrobe by Morgan Lee Kestner. Starring Andrea Young, Jessica Pack, Sarah Blackman, Bria Kaye and Beth Del Nero as the Five Footloose Female Carls. With a voice over by Carl himself (aka David Willis – the director of the Hayes Carll “Another Like You” video)!  We used two Canon 5D MKII’s to shoot it.

Hmmm, how to explain Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1 to the uninitiated… it’s a crude, some might say ‘adult’ Saturday Morning Cartoon that airs really late on Sunday nights.  It’s a surreal, satirical, black comedy about a team of crime solving fast food items (follow me here…) that don’t actually solve – or even investigate- any crimes.  Rather, they just exist in a decrepit suburban house as the world outside goes to hell.  Carl – the character the dancers in the ad portray, is their long suffering, knuckle dragging, sweatpant rocking neighbor.  The show is simultaneously inventively brilliant and willfully stupid, has been on the air for over a decade under it’s original moniker, Aqua Teen Hunger Force,  and even had full length feature in theaters back in 2007!  For you boomers out there, AUPS1 and it’s ilk are this generations’ answer to underground comics and Fritz The Cat.

A great shoot and a lot of fun, particularly the segments when the ladies messed around in their solo spots with the product; some seriously warped behavior arose!

NEC photo shoot 4/3/11

April 4th, 2011

Last night I had a photo shoot with Atlanta psych rockers N.E.C. (Natural Extension Concept, obviously).  A great time was had by all, so much so that we may be working on a few videos with the group as well – very exciting.  Awhile back studio manager Tony wrote an article about the group for the blog PBBI (Pushed Buttons Burning-In, obviously) which also has some music.  You can check it out HERE.  Photos by “Shaky” Emmons.
