See What I’m Saying is a music video for the feature documentary film of the same name. The song which plays through the closing credits was written for the film by the rock band Powder.
This music video, filmed with deaf actors, is one of a kind as it is open captioned throughout, which makes it accessible to all audiences. It was directed by Hilari Scarl, co-produced, filmed and edited by Jeff Gatesman and was generously sponsored by Sprint Relay.
Hop In The Stanza is a song by The Lilacs, that venerable pop band from Chicago in the early 1990’s. I shot this video and edited it at the A/V place I was working at. I may have been the first music video cut on the first Avid system in Chicago.

Live Action and CG from Rocket 88 Studios, Los Angeles, CA. This self-promotion piece takes us to the imaginary world of 10 year old Johnny. Searching for an adventure, our hero wanders through his fatherâ€™s garage where he finds, among other things, a captive fairy. The sound of a car horn grabs his attention as Dad rolls into the garage in his classic Rocket 88 Oldsmobile and as Johnny takes over the driverâ€™s seat of the car, his imagination takes him on an animated mission aboard his 3-D rocket ship throughout Garage Space.
