This is the ‘director’s cut’ of the Robot Chicken Season 5 DVD & Blu Ray spot featuring more footage of actor George Erdner selling his intended on the virtues of Robot Chicken. The official spot, with actual footage from the program, should be airing on Adult Swim soon. Thanks to director, writer and editor Nick Ingkatanuwat, producer Lear Bunda, our man Keith Roberts, wardrobe and stylist Morgan Lee Kestner and George Erdner; it was a blast, can’t wait for the next one!

Last week I went down to Clayton, Georgia. My assignment for Atlanta Magazine: to photograph one Billy Redden, known to the world from his brief, but unforgettable role as the young banjo savant in the 1972 film, Deliverance.
Don’t let the thumbnail scare you, the actual video is very crisp!
Well, here he is today! Click to experience.
Here’s the video for rising country star Hayes Carll that I did in conjunction with David Willis (of Adult Swim’s ‘Aqua Team Hunger Force’ infamy). It was a fast and woolly shoot and everyone had a great time. Big thanks go to Brett Gelman (Adult Swim’s Eagleheart, Funny Or Die) and Sarah Blackman, our liberal and conservative, respectively. During the filming we had them verbally fighting at the bar – the insults they were throwing at each other were no holds barred and hilarious. The live segments with Hayes Carll and Ann Hearst were filmed in North Carolina during a soundcheck and the end segment with James Carville and Mary Matalin – who graciously allowed us into their home for the afternoon – was filmed in New Orleans.
It debuted on Don Imus’s show of all places and just got a mention on Rolling Stone.com. Click to experience.
Oh look, HUFFPO!

Here’s the set that I did of blues rock / jamathon journeymen Widespread Panic for Eric Capossela (who also created the stained glass-eque font) and Atlanta Magazine. Retouching by Bradley Kaye. Real nice, down to Earth dudes. On the newsstands now!
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.
Just read this on Adage.com. You can hit the link for the full article or click the pic for the basic gist of the article. In essence, Kleenex’s “Share The Softness” campaign / social experiment which we shot for the folks over at Studiocom has turned out to be a big success! I’d like to congratulate everyone involved – it was a real team effort, a lot of fun and is no surprise it continues to do as well as it has.
Here is one of three ads that we shot for Steve Saari of Lawler Ballard Van Durand and the National Peanut Board. Directed By Jason Maris. Camera by Jason Maris and Adam Boozer of Jewell & Ginnie. The music was produced by Bix Sigurdsson. The model is noted dancer, drummer and fight choreographer Chester Whitmore. The goal was to have a continuity of vision between the commercial spots and the print campaign. I think we nailed it!
