DA Films: “Say Trippin” / Documentary Film Project

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.
