Mellow Man Ace – Freak Freak Y’all

Electronic Awakening (2011)


As a DSLR video editor and cinematographer, I started out in 2000, In college working with off the rack DV cameras and FCP in an early mac environment. Moving between Mac & PC, and making art videos, video mixes for event visuals, and instructional corporate videos.

In 2005 I made the jump to music videos and made my first film, it taught me a lot about what not to do and even more about what works well. It was at this time i upgraded to a canon XL1 and a mac edit station and started pushing out several music videos, and shortly after a compilation DVD, “315 Hidden Gems”; that is still available on

In 2008 I started my first serious attempt at a feature independent film. Our Main supporting actor was also location logistics and casting.

After 5 months of planning, he passed away unexpectedly in his sleep a week before shooting was to start. With last minute changes and losing 80% of our locations, we decided to go forward anyway as a short. Shooting the most important scenes and following up there after with next important.

It was at this time that our main antagonist had a personal crisis and left the production. With dwindling funds, I started work at the Daily Variety in 2009 and shelved this project until this year. After Variety was sold, my position eliminated when they stopped publishing the Daily Paper. I had a chance encounter with our Lead, while filming a music video for Latin Hip Hop Icon, Mellow Man Ace.

We decided to un-shelve, rewrite and finish the film. It is now finishing post and a release will come in the following months.
