You're The Best
Self-portrait. Turnaround time, concept to completion: four days.
I wanted two things: 1) to do a little story with this big old song that had been kicking around in my head, and 2) to direct myself and troubleshoot that direction in real time. It ended up being pretty fun and a good exercise in energy and pacing.

Janet Olson is a parking enforcement officer, and she’s on a mission: ticket her quota of cars by five o’clock, and go home to her kids. But when her only pen falls down a sidewalk drain and no one wants to help her out, she must face the odds and find a solution, fast…
"'The Limit' delights for its classic action-driven comedy and situational humor, like that of Olly Williams' Cannes-acclaimed short 'The Fly', but also reflects on human perseverance through the lens of one woman's small problem. It's a bittersweet metaphor for life." - Andrew Meyer, Producer (The Breakfast Club, Fried Green Tomatoes)
In-kind sponsorships by The Dixon Ticonderoga Company, Chipotle, Krispy Kreme, Kaufman-Heinz LLC, and Spudnik Savannah. Proudly funded on Indiegogo; visit The Limit's campaign page to see how well we did!

"Every once in awhile, an opportunity arises that's simply too perfect to miss. For twenty-two Kettle Run High School students on one chilly autumn Saturday morning, that opportunity was the Katy Perry "Roar" cover video contest. We assembled our crew and filmed two minutes of what we knew wasn't the biggest or most elaborate production, but more of something that struck a deep chord with not only our school, but our county and community as well; we made a music video that depicted the strength of hundreds through the portrayal of the strength of one.
We are Kettle Run High School. What we show in this video is the unity of a school and a town brought together by trials and triumphs, struggles and support. Our tiny community has seen more than ten children in the past few years diagnosed with cancer; it has become a rallying point for us. Younger or older, richer or poorer, regardless of friend group, clique or social status, we have found strength in each other throughout the solemnity of the sickness, and more than anything else our support of each other is what truly defines us as Kettle Run."
