Working again with Ethan Steinman of Daltonic Films, this video began in October with Ethan following Roger Espinoza to Honduras, and completed after he caught up with him again at his home in Kansas City. It was a challenge, but I am proud to have whittled down so much good footage and information to an acceptable length. Having Adrienne Von Wolfensdorff assist with editing helped immensely.
The video is released via Fox Sports, and will also be featured on foxdeportes.com and futbolmls.com
Corespondents music video
I’ve heard there are more building cranes in Seattle than in Dubai. The landscape of Seattle has changed dramatically in the last few years, and most of the push seems to come from corporate white men from mega companies with the mentality that everything & anything can be bought.
As a member of Corespondents (which is also comprised of white men) I decided at least to make this video is about the disappearing youth culture…
I feel extremely lucky to have found an amazing team to work on it, and I am quite proud of what we made.
Another satisfying job working with Ethan Steinman for Daltonic Films and Major League Soccer. The idea was to shed more light on the referees, who seem to be despised or ignored.
The main challenge on this was cutting down over 2TB of footage to just over 11 minutes.
I am proud of the outcome and look forward to any future work with Ethan.
Ever wondered what it's like to be a referee? Daltonic Films and Major League Soccer (MLS) offer an in-depth look at one of the most difficult jobs in sports.
An informative/promotional piece for the Washington State Budget and Policy Center’s annual conference. The 6-hour conference had numerous speakers as well as sessions happening simultaneously – a lot of information to get across in 3 minutes!
Anne-Simone got in touch with me on Feb 5 to inquire about making another music video for a new song of hers, to be released on Valentines Day. It was a new song that hadn’t even been recorded yet. She was planning to record with the master, Steve Fisk. So, I said OK! We scheduled a shooting session for Tuesday Feb 10, and we had a rough song mix to shoot with. While we were shooting, guitar tracks were being added to the song. I received 2 more song updates while I was editing the video, and they kept getting fuller and funkier. I completed the editing on February 13. A pretty amazing feat – from concept to full mastered song and video within a week and a half! It was like a 72-hr film challenge for me, and it was fun. I couldn’t have done it without the help of Mr. Jeff Gardiner.
MLS – Adidas
Ethan Steinman of Daltonic Films contacted me about editing a few pieces for the new MLS match ball. I was very excited & a bit anxious for the project, since I have had no soccer video experience. But, working with Ethan was terrific, and I would do something like this again anytime. The process did make me nostalgic for playing soccer as a kid, and I am very thankful for the experience.
Anne-Simone got in touch with me after seeing the “Manifest Destiny’s Child” video. She was incredible to work with; very supportive and flexible to a guy who’s a bit out of his element in creating pop music videos. It was also a first time for me using 4k footage, which slowed the editing time considerably because of the amount of layering. But, in the end, I think we got somewhat close to her original idea…
I was commissioned through Historic Seattle along with Voices Rising, Hidmo & 206Zulu to finish this piece for Washington Hall. There was limited amount of content to work with and a lot of information to get across, but Storme Weber guided me through the importances of what needed to be in the video. She was a thrill to work with and I enjoyed working for this cause.
Last year I made some short videos with my nephew, Spencer. I cropped the footage so it seemed there were multiple Spencers in the same shot. Sometime later, I approached Ezra Dickinson about making a music video for a Corespondents song. I showed him these videos of my nephew and Ezra really wanted to do something similar. Ezra found that the idea would fit very well into this piece he was making for his mother. He was right.
Everyone in this video is Ezra Dickinson*

Video by Doug Arney and Ezra Dickinson
This video was created to be a part of Ezra Dickinson’s piece “Mother For You I Made This”, which is is aimed at activating a conversation about the failed mental health care system in America through memories of Dickinson’s childhood as he lived with and unknowingly cared for his schizophrenic mother.
*except one. Can you spot the one? (and it’s not the masked one at the end, that is also Ezra Dickinson)
Benjamin Maestas commissioned me to make this video for his grant proposal, which is for a dance performance (with him and Ezra Dickinson) in Nord Alley in Pioneer Square, exploring the relationship between architecture and movement.

iPad/iTouch Application video
This is a promo video made for iSheetMusic – an application for the iPad/iTouch. Photographer, Charlie Schuck, and I created this piece with direction from iSheetMusic.
The music was supplied by iSheetMusic as well.
This is a portion of video from Actually Really, a sound/video/dance performance piece that played at the North West Film Forum. This sample played at the beginning, before the performance began. The rest of the piece did not look like this at all…
