Films

I have been making videos since I was in middle school.

I cut my teeth editing on a copy of Final Cut Pro 7 that my uncle gave me. My passion grew as I got older and I decided in high school - this is it. I'm currently the Video Director at K2 the Church; making short-form documentaries, short films, marketing media, motion graphics, and teaching video production.

I am always open to freelance work ranging from wedding videos, music videos, art films, short films, corporate information videos and marketing videos.
Feel free to contact me any time

EROS

“We should make a music video," Daniel said. About a year later, we finally have. From start to finish, the collaboration for “Eros” has been a fun and creatively freeing ride. It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with two incredibly creative and determined artists. With the help of many friends and love ones, we have finally finished “Eros”. Thank you. We hope you enjoy it. — Garret Hoover                                                        

The song “Eros” is featured on Daniel Pimentel’s album, “Selfish Songs”. danielpimentel.bandcamp.com

York, Howell & Guymon

I worked with York Howell & Guymon on a series of branded videos that gave light into what they do, how they do it, and why. It was a fantastic experience working with such wonderful and professional people.

Swaziland - In the Light of God

Short recap video of a mission trip to Swaziland, Africa. Created for K2 the Church. I shot, interviewed, edited and experienced the entire journey. This film could be so much longer.

Honduras

A recap vignette of a mission trip to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. A team from K2 the Church visits long-time Church partners and friends in Tegucigalpa. Here, Iglesia En Transformación feeds, teaches and cares for children of Los Pinos.

INTERLUDE

The short film explores the visions and nostalgia of time between two different stages of life. I created this short film just before I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. In a particular way the shooting experience and finished film is an homage to Indianapolis - my hometown.

Apart

This short piece was a great exercise to work out style and camera techniques. Things I want to have pinned down when filming comes for my longer project. It also became a tremendous venue to work out some color grades and custom music. A friend and I recorded her playing cello in my room / office and dressed it all up in post. Shot in the great state of Utah - Great Salt Lake. It's quite other worldly.

My Favorite Cup

Funny story behind this video. Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee had a competition for people to create videos of coffee being brewed. Winner would be feature throughout the series. I fortunately won and I am featued in the Jay Leno epsiode. Keep on the look out for a new coffee video! I used the KONE coffee filter from Able Brewing on a Chemex coffeemaker. I know the grinder wasn't a burr grinder (shame!). But the coffee tasted great!

The Pistachio

An oldie but a goodie. One of my personal favorite works. Inspired by the one and only George Costanza and my own very similar personal experience.
