Big D

I’ve recently been given the opportunity to conceptualize and direct a video about the future by Chris Caplice of the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics. Working with his team has been an incredibly rewarding experience, and I was provided with the means to hire wardrobe, art direction, hair and make up, and a cast of eleven actors, including my good friend, Ph.D. zombie superstar Christopher Robichaud. It definitely felt like I was directing a real production. We shot for two days about a week ago, one day in a green screen studio and another one on location at MIT, where I borrowed facilities from the MIT Engineering Systems Division and the MIT School of Architecture and Planning.

The nature of this project needs to remain confidential until it is released, so I can’t say much more about it yet, except that it has been a lot of adventure and fun, and I am grateful with everyone that has helped me with it.
