My foray into movie making with my latest commission to photograph and film this awesome band of jazz musicians and poets, Heroes Are Gang Leaders. An avant-garde/experimental jazz band looking to redefine the concept of music/sound and its relationship to instrument and literary text.
Here are Outtakes, Promotional Clips and BRoll Footage from “Say Trippin” a documentary webisodic film project in collaboration with Heroes Are Gang Leaders.
