The Museum of the Moving Image in New York has included my short film on the Reagans in an exhibit called "Cut Up" that's running through September 15, you can find out all about here:

I'm writing specifically to invite you to a Panel Discussion that I'll be part of, and a Reception the Museum is holding, both on Friday, August 23 from 6:30 to 10pm. The panel, called, "Those Are Your Words Not Mine," runs from 6:30 to 8 and also includes The Gregory Brothers (of "Auto-Tune the News" ) and I'll probably be showing some clips of other film projects (including an excerpt from my first feature film, now renamed, "Urine Trouble!" which will hopefully be released this Fall.) The reception begins at 8pm.

Here's more info about the Panel Discussion:

Also, in case you didn't see it, in February an article was published on the Gawker io9 web site about me and the making of the Reagans film, here's a link to it:

Admission to both the Panel and the Reception is free, but please RSVP to with subject line "Cut Up" for the Reception

Cut Up

June 29–September 15
In the Amphitheater Gallery

Organized by Jason Eppink, Associate Curator of Digital Media

From supercuts to mashups to remixes, Cut Up celebrates the practice of re-editing popular media to create new work, presenting contemporary videos by self-taught editors and emerging artists alongside landmarks of historic and genre-defining reappropriation.

Easy access to editing tools and distribution platforms now gives more people than ever before the opportunity to respond to the commercial products that shape our cultural dialogues. By plumbing a vast shared vocabulary of image and sound, audiences can express affiliation, criticize, or construct entirely new content using popular media as raw material. Re-edited videos are created and shared online daily by publics that spend increasing amounts of social time in front of networked screens. As the distinction between consumer and participant becomes ever more fluid, re-editing popular media has emerged as a common way of participating in a shared cultural conversation.

The exhibition presents a selection of short-form video works that take movies, music videos, television series, and news broadcasts as their source material, focusing on genres and techniques that have emerged online over the past decade and their on- and offline precedents.
