I shot this... Dec 25, 2008
well, mostly. Check out the short film Leaves, recently released by partner in crime, Michael Aakre. I directed the lighting of, and shot the indoor scenes for the film (Mike shot the outdoor stuff on another weekend while I was working on another friend's film). It turned out very well, definitely worth a viewing!

P.S. Merry Christmas!

Nerds for Life, baby! Aug 18, 2008

I added the Nerds for Life music video to the movies page. It's pretty sweet. You can also see it on YouTube at the uberdudes.net youtube page! Which I would prefer, because then it will get more views and use up less of my bandwidth. But, you'll get much better picture and sound quality here, so do what you please.

Also, just for those of you who actually read these posts, Counter-Struck: Sourced is not dead. I'm editing the film now, and I decided to give it one more hardcore chopping, which actually drastically improved the pacing and turned out brilliant for the overall quality of the story and the film as a whole. I still have to make a few minor changes, and then finish up the sound design. So, it shouldn't be too much more than a year later than the originally announced release date.

a few minor updates Aug 4, 2008
I added my sound-design/editing demo-reel to the front page, which is pretty cool. It's not a cinematographer's reel, so don't expect cool shots and lots of flashy imagery accompanied by sweet techno music, rather, full clips of some of my better work to give you an idea of the editing/pacing and the sound work of the selected pieces.
Enjoy,

Chris

New movies! Jun 1, 2008
I have finally put up the few movies from the past few years I promised awhile back that have just been sitting on my hard drive. Confessions of a CS Addict, a short piece about videogame addiction, and Alice, a short film about a girl who struggles with depression... check them out on the movies page!

Update Mar 31, 2008
It's been awhile since I've posted any updates, but here are a few! Post-production of Counter-Struck: Sourced is currently on hold while we finish up a few other projects. Those two, plus a few more movies I made in 2006-2007 will be up toward the beginning of summer, then Counter-Struck: Sourced will finally be finished soon thereafter. All that's left for CS:S is sound design/mix and music composition, as well as special effects... it's close!

In the meantime, check out both of the Counter-Struck: Sourced teasers over at the uberdudes.net YouTube page, here.

Counter-Struck: Sourced Sep 11, 2007
The new official title for the sequel to Counter-Struck! Today was the original planned release date, but a new editor is now working on the film, and we're planning for release no later than Christmas of this year. In the mean time, check out teaser 1 of 2 over at uberdudes.net, and check back in a few weeks for a second, way cooler teaser, as well as a few films I made last year, but am just on the verge of finishing.

Please also check out the generous sponsors of Counter-Struck: Sourced, AirSplat and Xfire!

Updates... May 19, 2007
Counter-Struck 2 has been delayed... it is shot, but post-production is proving to be much more work than I expected -- we ended up with nearly six hours of raw footage. Those other films mentioned in the previous post have been put on hold for time being, but they will be put up sometime in the near future, as Counter-Struck 2 is currently more of a priority. That's all for now!

Happy New Year! Jan 1, 2007
So it's 2007. Check back in the next few weeks for some new videos. Preproduction of Counter-Struck 2 is going well, and will begin filming in late January/early February! A third and possibly final draft of the script is in the works, with some major but awesome changes. That's all for now!

"Hi" released! Dec 26, 2006
Long, long overdue, "Hi" has finally been completed and added to the movies section! Thanks to everyone who was involved!

Counter-Struck 2 is official (plus more)! Sep 26, 2006
That's right! The second draft of the script has just been finished for Counter-Struck 2, and production is planned to begin late this year or early 2007. In other news, the Untitled Work in Progress is coming along nicely, and the final edit should be up within a few weeks.
