Saturday – Thai with Lindsey and Riley!
Since I am trying to track calories more lately, I decided to try their incredible Garlic Salmon with sautéed spinach, yum! 20130211-233253.jpg Ooh but when you try this place you should try this…20130211-233445.jpg Ice cream surrounded by cake batter and coconut, then fried, it’s incredible! (I was good this weekend, Riley ate it)

Then I had the silly puppy that thinks my face should be her pillow…. 20130211-233716.jpg

Rusty J at the Whisky!

Yesterday was amazing!! Oh my goodness 🙂 it was such a busy day but so great.

Today Rusty J played the Whisky A Go Go!

We started the day with coffee, reviewing all the footage we shot for Rusty’s next music video.

By afternoon we were in West Hollywood for the sound check. And meeting the other artists playing.

Sadly Rusty is going back home this morning, after a wonderful week in California. Hopefully in a year we will do it all over again, with a new video to shoot!!

After almost a year I finally updated my “About” & “Film Making” pages! They may change (for the better hopefully) but this is a pretty good look into who I am and what I do.

I would love your thoughts and constructive criticism. What else would you like to see included? What isn’t clear?

Rusty J Music Video day 4!

Here’s to another awesome day!!
Life is good, God is great 🙂

So we started off slow this morning, relaxing at the house together. I made up some scrambled eggs & home fried potatoes.

We headed on a couple errands, went to Malaga Cove (great views), by the Redondo Beach pier again, then met up with Nicolle and Nick to shoot!

Later everyone came with us to shoot some awesome secret music video stuff, I really wish I could share but I promised not to!

Then dinner! I was going to cook up some chicken but instead we headed to one of my favorite places in Old Town Torrance, La Capillia

Rusty J Music video day 3!

Day 3 shooting Rusty J’s new music video went great!

The day started off with a trip to Hollywood Presbyterian Church on Rodeo Drive. We went to the contemporary service which was great!

After we got back to the house I stayed home to download and organize some footage from the Go Pro cameras (and do some much needed laundry) while the guys when hiking! Rusty J and Riley hit the gorgeous bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Palos Verdes. It was a perfect California day for hiking.

(Rusty will post about this for you soon, Rustified.com)

Since I cannot share many photos from the actual shoot here is some of Sierra and I running a Go Pro on Rusty’s awesome steady cam rig!

After some more shooting we went to this awesome Hootenanny at the Urban Homestead in Pasadena, CA.

20130127-233741.jpg

Long story short an awesome friend of Rusty’s invited him and us and it was a blast! Amazing people, great energy, relaxing, & fun.

They had wonderful, organic, non GMO food with vegan/vegetarian options!

Rusty even got a chance to play a few of his incredible songs for us all! Everyone loved it!!

After that we got a much needed chance to relax.

Later Rusty J and I made dinner and shot a new episode of Rusty J’s “Lets Cook Something Good” We made my “Tuesday night” Tacos and Spanish Rice!

We ended the night around the fire pit with incredible people. We had Rusty J , Nicolle, Sierra (pictured above), James, Riley, Hannah, Jimmy, Nick, Lindsey , and Heather.

I have a drawer full of old scripts that needed to be shredded (cannot throw these away) so we tossed them in the fire pit

See you tomorrow! Have a great Sunday!!

(This is in Redondo Beach, ca)

UPDATE: Around Midnight we headed into the valley for a late night hike in Laurel Canyon. Rusty J knew of this awesome spot where you can see the entire valley so we hiked up, got scared by coyote noises, and had a blast.

The incredible Rusty J

20130106-195453.jpg
The photo above is from the music video “I Just Wanna Know” that I co-produced with Rusty J and Nicolle (another very close friend) – (you can find it on his you tube page.)

20130106-202025.jpg (Nicolle in the tree about to film, my sister with the pink hair helping us)

I first met Rusty through Nicolle, she was photographing one of his shows here in LA. She is an incredible photographer, artist, and friend. She was also the Director of Photography on the music video above. (more on her later though, this post is all Rustified!)

Since we shot the video Rusty has moved to the other side of the country, but this post was prompted by the fact he’s coming to visit soon! Yay!! On his way to his new home he filmed parts to his second video as he drove through the country, he got some incredible footage!

What I find so amazing and wonderful about Rusty is he is one of the most real and genuine people I know. The guy in the videos is the same guy you meet when you run into him. He is happy, fun, loyal, hard working, energetic, larger than life, and a truly great friend.

Here is his brand new music video “Forget Forever”! It is fantastic!

Please take a minute and look at his sites and watch his videos!
(Hopefully soon he will be guest posting!)
