Guilt Trip [4K Remaster]

A getaway for two sisters soon comes crashing into reality as one is forced to deal with her mistakes in this dark comedy short film.

Guilt Trip was originally filmed in 2016 for the Oklahoma City 48-Hour Film Project with Tiffany Gibson, Kristy Boone, Katie Kochelek, Josh Shriner, Cassondra Darling, and Dennis Spielman as the Team Leader. The event describes itself as, “a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie – write, shoot, edit and score it – in just 48 hours!” For 2024, the film has been remastered and improved in 4K.

Brainstorming Session to Increase Following

Just because you’re self-employed (or even work from home), doesn’t mean you can’t have a holiday party. In this video, I share some activities you can do for your self-employed Christmas party.

Ophidiophobia: A Hedgey Story

Hedgey visits a therapist.

While at Quartz Mountain as part of the PR team for the Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute, Kyle came to me with this idea for a short film starring the camp’s mascot. We recorded this short comedy film for the Hedgey social media account and I went fancier than Kyle expected. This short has been a huge hit with everyone and so I wanted to share what we made here.

Working: A Bored at Home Video

I originally made this short film as an entry for the cinema5D Bored @ Home Filmmaking Competition, which I didn’t win. However, we had fun making this, and people have enjoyed it. I reuploaded it without the branding and made some adjustments to the color and sound. Apparently, I didn’t do any color correction.

I want to thank my wife for helping me flesh out my idea and directing it, and thanks to Lessa for being the roommate. This is my first film using my SIRUI 50mm f/1.8 1.33x Lens, which is my first anamorphic lens. Also used to make this short film: Panasonic Lumix GH5, Rode Wireless Mics, and GVM LED lights.

Hope you enjoy!
