What up 2013?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Ruby and I looking dapper...
How is everyone doing? 2013 has already been rough but cool. I have been doing lots of work on the 728 side. Lots of lighting work which is great.
I also have 2 new directing projects that I am working on!!!!! Yay right?!?! 2013 goals are off to a great start!
1st I am still working on getting my next short film started and off the ground. Its going slow, and I am still looking for a producer to help me out so more information will come soon on that.

Who likes werewolf's? and who likes Rockabilly?

Anyone ever heard of the band the Rocketz?
Check them out. They are a great Southern CA Rockabilly band. When I was in film school, I saw this music video:

I thought wow man, that is cool, and must have been cool to make. Its fairly simple, and there isn't anything in the video super out of the ordinary but something struck me. I had to work with this band. I hit them up right away on the only way I could at the time. Myspace. Never heard back from them. Then years later, I ran across them on facebook, added them, and messaged them again. Never heard back from them. Then years later I move to LA, I see on facebook that The Rocketz are recording new music and send them another facebook message. This time however, they hit me back, and I showed them my work. They liked it, and we start negotiating a new music video.

So I am making a new music video for The Rocketz. A werewolf music video... Its going to be super cool, but that's all I can tell you for now.

We do need some help! Who wants to be involved. we are looking for crew, extras, hot chicks, hot rods, rat rods, etc... Anything rockabilly. Want more details? ask me or visit the facebook group:
Let me know what you think, and if your excited. Also let me know if you wanna be part of it or help us out. Its going to be fun and super awesome!!!


  1. The Rocketz are excited to work with Wess on this new video/short film! I got fitted for my werewolf transformation and its going to be sick!!!

  2. This was a fun music video! It's gonna turn out so great and it was so fun to watch Wess direct. He is so good at it. And I'm not just being biased, I promise. I can not wait to see this one. Also, that pic of you and Ruby is hilarious.
