Okay...It has been awhile but there is a reason!

So it has been quite awhile since I was on here and I have promised to come back but this year I was diagnosed with Cancer and have been a battle with that beast! I am coming back soon and strong. I'm not sure where the subject matter will go or what I will do but I'm sure it will be at the least an interesting exploration. Some I will do with a little Flip Mino camera and some will be more blown out projects. I actually like the idea of online vlogs using a simple way of shooting to be more immediate. I will also be launching the long talked about vlogumentarian site and blogger site. Get ready, I'm coming back strong this year. This Cancer has inspired me!!!!

Time to Revive Docmaker on the Go

Well it has been many months since I last posted on here and it seems that the time has come to revive the ol' "Docmaker on the Go" videoblog, or vlog as it is commonly known on the streets. Originally the function of this vlog was to explore various topics and communities across the country or even world. Somehow along the way, I ended up spending a prolonged period, that was truly amazing, in the boogie down Bronx as well as other areas in and around NYC: The Birthplace of Hip-Hop. I was truly stumped how to make a change on here since so much of this vlog has focussed on the Hip-Hop community and today it hit me. Just do it, just start vlogging again. With that said, I will embark back on the path of my vlog: "Docmaker on the Go". Get ready over the next few weeks, you will see the revival of something that I am truly passionate about, my vlog. I've missed it for quite sometime.

"TREE" Spittin' Rhymes in the Y-O!

Watch the video
Once again I hit the road with SKILLZ DVD Magazine, a project that I did with my friend and fellow filmmaker, Javier Goin. This time we were in the Y-O, that's Yonkers, NY if you didn't know already from previous posts. We had a bit of a cypher jumping off on the Ravine Road. It was a crazy night with some serious lyrical skills being brandished on the boom. Here's a short clip that highlights the big man "TREE", part of the infamous "Gangsta' Click".
