One year ago today, there was a large flood here in Oklahoma City. Seeing how I love the rain and petrichor, I stood out behind my office watched the waters quickly rise. Thankfully my camera was close by, so I was able to capture the beginnings of the flood.

Ghouls Gone Wild

November 3, 2009 by Matt | 0 comments

I’ve decided to start posting some of my short films. These aren’t from my main gig, but short films I make on my own time for my own amusement. I’ve been extremely lazy creatively the past few years and with the purchase of my new camera, I’m finally getting back out and stretching my creative legs outside of work. So, here is the first.

This was shot at the 3rd annual, Ghouls Gone Wild parade in midtown Oklahoma City. I had never been to this parade and it was impressive to say the least. Almost 2 full hours of floats, bands, zombies, roller derby girls, and the best part at the end: 1,000 people dressed as skeletons and carrying Tiki torches being trailed by Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips inside a giant inflatable ball. Best. Parade. Ever.
