Check out this video I shot and directed for The Evening Attraction!
I had a blast shooting this. We shot on the rooftop of Treehouse Records on Cicero Ave right here in Chicago. We were shooting during every filmmaker’s favorite part of the day, “magic hour” which didn’t give us a whole lot of time. Luckily, Miles killed it in only a few takes.

Dearborn & Jackson, 9/27
I wasn’t sure if this guy was homeless or not (his clothing was pristine, yet here he was, sleeping downtown), so I hesitated; I don’t need to tell you that street photography of homeless people is ridiculously cheap and played out.
The guy woke up as soon as he heard my camera’s shutter.
"Holy shit," he said, "how many pictures you take of me?"
I showed him the one and he laughed. 
"Damn son," he laughed, "I’d love to have a copy of that. Print that out real big and hang it on my wall just to be weird."
So he gave me his business card and rolled away.
I like this city. View high resolution
