Selected Filmography

  • Dead Day Revolution: Vampire Blues

    Music Video/Short Film

    Dead Day Revolution Vampire Blues is a mini rock opera with a take-no-prisoners attitude that real rock 'n roll is all about. The song Vampyre Blues is about a youth petrified over the sexual power his sinister ex has over him. I took those ideas and amplified them with cinematic experience full of outrageous gags and pulse-pounding thrills.


    In 1962, a young couple on a date in a drive in movie theater gets the surprise of their lives when the guy's ex drops in for a bite!


    Written, Directed, Produced, Edited, & Production Designed by Dean Gold


    Starring Dead Day Revolution, Reka Rene, Adam Joseph Daniels, Erika Apelgren, Jhoanna Trias, and Kaycee Duale

  • Dead Day Revolution: Bury My Soul

    Music Video

    Dead Day Revolution: Bury My Soul exudes atmospherics and symbolism to depict the surreal and unsettling world of emotions and thoughts askew as expressed by the storyteller of the song, the song's singer. The Singer expresses internal and external struggle with love, self-identity, and alienation. Ultimately, the film is a subversion of standard notions of love. Appearing on screen as Dead Day Revolution singer Mike Sandoz, The Singer's alter-ego is the Handsome Man, depicted by a handsome young actor playing opposite to the Beautiful Woman. The music video is a moving art gallery and invites repeat viewings and induces the audience to imagine a world of things and possibilities beyond the edges of the frame.

    Starring Dead Day Revolution, Kendall Sinclair and Andrew Scott

  • Go Your Way

    Music Video

    Go Your Way, featuring David Amron depicts a psychological competition between The Singer (David Amron) and the object of his affection and frustration - "The Diva". Go Your Way is characterized by a whimsical, sometimes ironic, playful tone that is punctuated by arresting visuals and stylized camera movements. The groovy piece for a bluesy song is filled fun, energy, style, and choreographed dancing.
