I'm very pleased -- and fairly relieved -- to announce that This is Not a Conspiracy Theory has officially launched. The first installment can be viewed for free at the link above. To see future episodes you will need to subscribe. Launch price is $12. The price will rise to $15 later.
This project has been my labor of love for the past couple years and I hope you will you enjoy it.

Sorry for the long silence. I was very deep in development for my next project and also doing commission work for much of the summer. Anyway, new stuff is imminent. Here's what's coming soon.
Two new Everything is a Remix videos will be coming out this year. These will be shorter, more streamlined videos that cover a particular topic. The first one will be about the iPhone. These videos were made possible by my friends at iStock. I've also done a three-part series for them about getting the most out of stock in video work.
If you wanted an Everything is a Remix t-shirt, you will soon have the chance. It only took a year-and-a-half!
My next video series, This is Not a Conspiracy Theory, will be launching on November 24. I premiered a rough cut of an excerpt at XOXO in Portland and the reception was very encouraging. After being in development so long, it was gratifying -- and relieving -- to see that I hadn't gone off the rails.
Unlike Remix, you will need to purchase This is Not a Conspiracy Theory. If you already know you want to subscribe and you missed the KickStarter campaign, you can even pre-order right now. For $12 you'll get the full series via digital download. It will have no DRM, no regional limitations, and will be subtitled in multiple languages. DVDs and BluRays will be available later.
Hey folks, I'm currently transferring my site to a new host. Pardon the mess while everything gets sorted.

This one was commissioned for The Future of Storytelling Conference.
I was provided with audio of a story by author and neuroeconomist Paul Zak and
produced the video in collaboration with animator Henrique Barone.
In case you missed the mention in Part 4, my next project will be a free and open political series called This is Not a Conspiracy Theory. To support this project, come back me on KickStarter and help spread the word!
The genes in our bodies can be traced back over three-and-a-half billion years to a single organism, Luca, the Last Universal Common Ancestor. As Luca reproduced, its genes copied and copied and copied and copied, sometimes with mistakes — they transformed. Over time this produced every one of the billions of species of life on earth. Some of these adopted sexual reproduction, combining the genes of individuals, and altogether, the best-adapted life forms prospered. This is evolution. Copy, transform and combine.
And culture evolves in a similar way, but the elements aren’t genes, they’re memes — ideas, behaviors, skills. Memes are copied, transformed, and combined. And the dominant ideas of our time are the memes that spread the most.
This is social evolution.
Copy, transform and combine. It's who we are, it’s how we live, and of course, it's how we create. Our new ideas evolve
