Music videos are awesome. They can also be tragically bad. Fortunately, the crappy ones have given me a tremendous amount of inspiration. I like to layer and complicate music video conventions when I create my own. In Winnie Gets Chopped, for example, I wanted to address common themes of violence in hip hop, so we beat up a piñata--like really, really f*&%ed it. We also had men wear small pieces of clothing.

I was driving in the car one day and heard this Kelly Rowland song. The song is about achieving an orgasm, but I thought it would be much more interesting if it was about a Jenga tournament. A concept was born and a rabbi appeared. This is a personal favorite of mine.

Winnie Gets Chopped was a challenging shoot. We shot in a number of different locations and a lot of random people became stars that day. This production taught me the most challenging shoots are also the most gratifying.
