less than 1 minute read

In this episode, I continue on with the Vic-20 finishing off remaining items from the first episodes and then some brand new stuff!

  • Finishing the keyboard fixes
  • Fixing the power switch
  • Testing the memory cartridges
  • Vic-20 cxpansion options
  • Trying out Vic-20 IQ and personality tests!

This one ended up being way more involved than I intended, but I still had a lot of fun making it.

I Don’t Know What I’m Doing with the Vic-20 - Part 1

less than 1 minute read

In my first official video I decide I don’t know what I’m doing with the Commodore Vic-20 and decide to rectify that. I need to get my hands on a Vic-20, try to get it running and clean it all up. I get most of the way there, but a few things remain (along with a few additional projects) that I’ll try out in the next episode.

Did this one after watching the original video on YouTube. For some reason the horse sounded like it was yodeling.

Recession Hits North Pole… Santa Cancels Christmas? Permalink

less than 1 minute read

Got some traction and some notice out of this commercial my buddy Don and I created (on next to nothing budget).

You just know times are tough when Santa Claus has to kick the cinder blocks out from under his ride, put some extra feed in the reindeer and fly down to Cleveland to hock some of the old lady’s jewelry and candlesticks. And that’s exactly what’s going on in this spot from the Pavlish Group for Coin & Jewelry Buyers of America. (Don Pavlish dishes after the video.)

My and Don Pavlish’s NYU Film and TV thesis project, Sitcom 2000. We were slightly ahead when we produced this in 1997 with a companion site, chat bots, character blogs etc. Sorry about the video quality and the 4 parts :)

Home Again!

Sight and Sound video project done with Don Pavlish in 1995. Won a couple awards at the time. Probably some of the better work I did during those NYU film days. Funny to look back at the terrible quality of video back in those analog days.
