The Last Hyphenfest

Sun 04.15.12

For the past few years, I have held Hyphenfest, a celebration of my super cool birth. I like to be a little over the top, so I always make some sort of ridiculilous poster. This year’s theme is 2012, the end of the days. It’s always fun to try new techniques and styles. Last year, I used a comic book theme. This year, old grindhouse movie posters were my inspiration.

I filmed the goings-on at Hyphenfest 2011 and put together 5, short, amusing videos. You can find them over on my Vimeo channel, Hyphen Home Movies, or you can check out the Hyphenfest-only channel. Here’s a sample below:


6 Words

Sun 12.11.11

Over the summer, I found myself in the fine state of Washington for the 3rd time. This time I was there with a purpose; my cousin & dear friend, Anne, was getting married. During the reception, which took place mere feet from the Pacific Ocean, I roamed around with my video camera. I asked the guests for 6 words for the bride & groom. In many cases, I didn’t get exactly 6, but I did get to make a fun little video. I hope you enjoy it.

Please remember that you can find me on Vimeo over at Hyphen Home Movies.

I took some videos in July and finally got around to editing them. Please to enjoy the colors in the sky.

Hyphen Home Movies Part 2

Mon 07.18.11

Last week I posted Part 1 of the Hyphenfest 2011 videos. Please enjoy the downward spiral. By the way, due to some of my more “vocal” friends, these videos might be considered not safe for work, so view them when you get home and have a beer in hand.

Rated PG13 – As the sun sets, our day begins. Energy is renewed, blood mixes with ethanol, and a bunch of nerds discuss Tron for far too long.

Songs: Something from the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, I think.

Rated R – $2.99 for six beers, what could be better? Perhaps, Shoes in 3D? The party spills outside. We reach the peak.

Rated NC17 – Does anyone even use this rating any more? Isn’t it a financial kiss of death? The spiral plummets downward.

Song: “Animal Rap (Arturo Gatti Mix)” Jedi Mind Tricks

Be sure to check the Hyphensite Vimeo channel from time to time, as I think I am going to start uploading the occasional home movie. I’ll try to keep it interesting.
