NightRider87 is a ＳＹＮＴＨＷΛＶΞ Project featuring a unique and futuristic sound heavily influenced by arcade games, anime, and all things cyberpunk! They commissioned me to modify an Alesis Vortex 2 keytar, which I chopped up and rebuilt with custom cases and e-waste. While the stock electronics are intact, it has multiple auxiliary systems and accommodations to add MIDI modules and other upgrades.
O M G...... I HAVE NO WORDS. THIS MAYBE THE SINGLE GREATEST KEYTAR IN THE 'VERSE!!

Cyberhex is a track by Motionless in White that heralded a new era in their music. I was commissioned to build five cyberpunk jackets based on one of my earlier designs. I proposed that each jacket be a totally unique build, and they agreed to let me run wild with the designs. This was an especially exciting project that tested my creativity and efficiency.
You did an amazing job at bringing these ideas to life. You are a visionary, and it was an honor to work with you to now get to show off your talents. Thanks for the effort you put into these.

Sunday is a music video by Auditorium, produced by Ben Barnes. Ben designed a rucksack which appeared to have been issued to agents who wander a post-apocalyptic world in search of home videos. I brought the rucksack to life with some moving features and a functional media display.
Thank you for being so thorough and professional. I can't tell you what a relief it was to have you come through the way you did. The crux of this short's believability was the rucksack. You not only nailed it, but the directions you took it in, esp. the aging, were the exact right instincts. It's exactly what I had in my mind when I wrote the treatment to this years ago. Thanks for all your hard work and I hope we work together again in the future.
Egress is a sci-fi short written and directed by Clarito Zapanta and produced by IAJ Media, for which I designed and built a variety of props. The design guidelines specified that each item was manufactured by the dominant government-military entity in the galaxy, during two different eras. The props therefore share some design features, but are divided by age.
