Working on a love letter to Sesame Street: an updated version of Ernie’s “I Don’t Want To Live On The Moon.” Mixing music, animation, greenscreen puppets & toys, calligraphy, and more. Should be out by the end of the year…
Extraneous Lyrics 2013 launches today! This time around I tried to add myself inside some of the year’s most popular videos. Hope you enjoy!
This past week, I recorded the music and filmed the scenes for Extraneous Lyrics 2013. Every year things get a little more ambitious…this time we used a green screen so I can insert myself into the most popular videos of the year. Still a ton of work to do, but I’m hoping for an early December release.
Extraneous Lyrics 2012 is out today! This project took about 3 months to put together: learning how to play the songs, rewriting the lyrics, practicing, recording all the tracks, filming with my friend Shaun, editing the video, and finally adding in all the motion-tracked lyrics and post-processing. Thanks for watching…hope you enjoy it!

This weekend my friend Shaun helped me film Extraneous Lyrics 2012 (yes, I decided to get out of the house and not film in front of a tablecloth again this year). We shot at 4 different locations around Redwood Shores, and the raw footage is looking ridiculously great. Now I’ve got a ton of clips to sort through - hoping to have it out in a month or so!
A few extra lyrics never hurt anyone…
This is something I do all the time to songs on the radio in the car, so I figured I might as well record it.
