New to YouTube is my short film Fleeting.
My influences when making this film were the music of Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello as well as the german expressionist films of FW Murnau and the French New Wave films of Francois Truffaut. Specifically Murnau's silent feature Sunrise and Truffaut's short Love at 20.
For some of you it will be a revisiting of something I did a little while back. For others it will hopefully be an exciting discovery of awesomeness.
Rate it, share it and send some love my way.

It turns out that moments like those that Bill Murray's and Scarlett Johanson's characters enjoyed at the Tokyo karaoke joint in Lost In Translation can actually happen to you in real life. I'm not one to carry a note or stay in tune when I sing in my car alone and its not much different when I get on the mic with 7 of my closest friends in a slightly gamy karaoke room in Korea Town. However, I found that nobody has to be good at singing to enjoy a night of hamming it up with the mic like Bill Murray in lounge singer mode. Karaoke is fun!
