Sugar Pi Fairy

 

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this. Earlier this year, my friend (and past documentary subject) John Brown recommended me for a Nerdist project. Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years) was working on a math/comedy (mathedy?) series and needed someone to direct and post a short music video based around the mathematical constant pi. We shot all primary photography (Danica and ballerinas) in one day in June followed by a couple of short pick-up shoots throughout the summer to grab the various celebrity cameos. I handled all of the post: editing, color, compositing, animation, design, etc. As a sign of her appreciation, Danica brought me a homemade chocolate pecan pie afterwards. I’ve never had a client bake me a pastry before or deliver it to my somewhat secluded (by L.A. standards) residence. She is setting a high bar for all future clientele.

And, yes, she really did have the whole song memorized.

Butcher Bird and Monkey Kingdom just can’t get enough of each other. We’re like oil and vinegar, fire and gunpowder, Sonny and Cher, some cool singer and some other cool singer. Regardless, Travis just spent the last two weekends directing “a swashbuckling steampunk short with Yuri, Tara, and John de Lancie.” Expect more updates and photos as it moves through post in 2014.
