I have authored a number of books on video production and creative techniques. This page acts as an introduction to one of those books, focusing on starting your own video biz. With forty years and more than a few businesses behind me, I have learned a lot and like sharing what I know. Site was authored with DIVI, a popular theme / site customizer.
I recently revised my first video book, one dedicated to folks who would like to learn how to produce legacy or “tribute ” videos for family, friends, coworkers, who are celebrating as big life occasion requiring that the celebrant’s story be told. What better way than video? How to turn hundreds of photos, slides and films into a cohesive video is the core of this book.
Tribute New York is my brother’s NYC “Tribute Video” production company. It features a dissolving header featuring family and nostalgia pictures, to match the mood of a personal history video.

This site celebrates the work of a certain Mr. Claus based in New York City. As a Santa for hire during the holidays, its goal is to document the warmth and fun he provides to children and adults who book him for various party’s or Christmas visits. It was authored on WordPress, using a specialized Christmas theme and slideshow plugins.
Weight loss is an ongoing concern for our nation, and it’s a concern I take personally since I’ve had heart problems and have dieted many times in the past. This site tells my story, shares articles and insight about various diet plans, and offer products that fit into those diet plans. It also features a “lead magnet” free book I edited in order to build a mail list of potential customers.
My original production website, done for my production company “VideoStory”. Features moving video backgrounds on the title page, and numerous video galleries that act as a portfolio for our work.
Earlier this decade, we spent a large chunk of time producing timelapse stores for various clients. A lot of people will shoot timelapse of the construction or buildout of a facility, but rarely is that footage made into a story. Our timelapse stories include interviews, timelapse and timelapse footage, location audio, interviews, and people marveling at the end result. These were very popular so we started a marketing effort to sell more of these projects.
