Looking for Lovborg

This video I designed for Zoe Aja Moore and Co.'s "Looking for Lovborg" (included as part of Redcat's Fall 2011 Studio series) features snippets from the following 25 films/videos:

13 Most Beautiful... Songs for Andy Warhol Screen Tests
9 1/2 Weeks
American Gigolo
Angels With Dirty Faces
The Blank Generation
Don't Look Back
East of Eden
The Filth and the Fury
The Fugitive Kind
Last Days
Le Cercle Rouge
Le Samourai
Mean Streets
My Own Private Idaho
The Public Enemy
Rebel Without a Cause
Rumble Fish
Thelma & Louise
Wall Street
When You're Strange
The Wild Angels
The Wild One
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" (music video)

Here's a description of "Looking for Lovborg":
"By exploding an isolated moment from the end of Act II of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler, Zoe Aja Moore and her collaborators mine the play's latent themes of celebrity and mythology. Four actors explore the character of Lovborg and his inevitable crash into sober reality through a fragmented mash-up of text, video, gesture and the music of the Shangri-Las."

frame grabs - PHREEQUES! aka DE-ART(H)!! aka THE UNTITLED!!!

Some HD frame grabs (Canon 7D) from this past Saturday's (October 29, 2011) U-N-M-A-R-K-E-D event @ Highways. 4.5 hours of loudly perverse, chaotically sleazy, just plain Wrong Performance, Music, Installation, Video, Drinking, Smoking, Brawling... all evoking the mood of that period in film 1975-1985, when grindhouse became video nasty.

Stay tuned for more pics + a featurette about the event.

GGW review on Tiny Mix Tapes

from a review of the new Captain Ahab video "Girls Gone Wild" on the site TINY MIX TAPES: 

"the track’s video, by Patrick Kennelly, is a textbook case of mincing and blending, going savage with visual cues and our music video expectations ... The result: a PCP-fueled rampage? A mind so wrecked it’s left with little more than static-distorted images of pornography and exploitation? Yes, please!"

Captain Ahab's "Girls Gone Wild" Video Premiere

Released online October 25 is the video I created for my good friends Captain Ahab's 6-year old! single "Girls Gone Wild."  Originally a tour projection, I repackaged it as a quickie stand-alone.

Captain Ahab tours Europe throughout November.  For dates, visit here.

And here's a backhanded compliment on Impose TV.
