FILMOGRAPHY

Conspiracy Theorists Lie (2015)
Producer / Director / Narrator / Editor

There have been many lies told by conspiracy theorists in the half century that followed President Kennedy’s assassination. This film confronts those lies and collimates with a trip to Dealey Plaza for the 50th Anniversary, where a few true believers stubbornly defend every piece of conspiratorial nonsense they have ever seen, read, or heard.

Bob Gruen: Rock-n-Roll Photographer (unreleased)
Editor

A documentary based primarily on interviews with rock-n-roll photographer Bob Gruen about his life and famous work (Gruen is the guy who took the John Lennon NYC shirt photo and many others). The film languished without a budget for music rights, then it was beat to market by Don Letts’ film about Gruen. Sadly, this production will probably never make it to a screen near you.

First Avenue: Hayday (2006)
Editor

First Avenue Nightclub is one of the best live music venues in the country. This concert documentary was constructed from footage shot between 1985 and 1992. It provides an interesting glimpse into an important time in Minneapolis music history but it proved to be a legal nightmare, since none of the artists signed release forms in those days and the ownership of the club has changed hands since then. This has prevented the film from being shown outside of a few public screenings.

You don’t know Hitler (2006)
Producer / Director / Narrator/ Editor

This began as a Masters Thesis film called, Reel Nazis, and grew into a larger contemporary about the misuse of Hitler as an all purpose insult. The film uses propaganda footage from the 30s-40s, and original narration, to shed new light on that evil period.

From That Moment On: Three Conversations about Dealey Plaza (2005)
Producer / Director / Editor

This graduate school production was shot during 2003, the 40th Anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination in Dealey Plaza, and won a student award at the Deep Ellum Film Festival in Dallas. It tells the story of the plaza before and after the President was murdered there. It was not publicly released because of copyright issues with archival material provided by the Sixth Floor Museum but much of raw footage is on YouTube, including some interesting and insightful interviews.
