Coming Soon! Avocado Afternoon!

Just finished the music video for “Avocado Afternoon,” by Diva this past weekend.  I’m really excited about this music video I directed, you guys. If you like color, magic, dreams, and reallllllllly textured, slowed down music, you have tons to look forward to with Avocado Afternoon.

It’s coming out soon!  I’ll keep you posted.

my friend lauren randolph took this really fantastic picture of me a few weeks ago.

Lauren makes amazing work, so it was exciting to get in front of her camera.  She’s one of my favorite photographers in Los Angeles.  Her work is so full of charisma and attention to detail.  I can’t get enough of it.  Go to her website and check out her work.  Here’s a sample of what you’re in store for:

Here’s a portrait I took of Dr. Nakamats, the world’s most prolific inventor.  There was an amazing documentary made about him a few years back.  You should really check it out.

He is one of the most positive men I’ve ever met in my life.

banners -> screen prints

I’m teaming up with my friends at Reform School to do a series of limited run screen prints based on my canvas banners.  I’m excited because it will make my banners a little more affordable for everyone to buy, but also because it’s Reform School’s first foray into wholesale retailing.  You won’t have to travel to Silverlake to buy one!  Or log onto the internet!  You could buy one in your own city!  Probably!

This one says “I BELIEVE IN EVERYTHING.”

from the vault!

This is a still from a clip I shot for my 2011 director’s reel.  I had it in my head that what my reel really needed was a hosted segment where people could get to know me.  Turns out, probably not the case.

But, all the same, look at those colors!

JIMMYNADI Public Service Announcements

Adi and I started a new series of motivational public service announcements.  The goal is to promote positivity and give people who are feeling slightly in the dumps a boost of energy.  There’s a million positive things to do with life, and there’s no reason to let the blues or a rut cloud that.
