Here is a commercial I directed and edited for United Worldwide.


Kristen Hamill in United Worldwide's "Limotosis" Commercial, by

“Boston’s United Worldwide is THE ONLY private car, limousine and chauffeur service that can cure severe cases of Limotosis.”

Fleet Foxes “Mykonos” at the Orpheum Theatre, Boston MA – 2011 [Skiffleboom.com]

by Michael McVey, Skiffleboom.com

A trip to see some Fleet Foxes with Mortimer Duckbrella + friends.  Orpheum Theatre, Boston MA – May 17, 2011, HD FLIP + FCP.  I stitched this video later that night.

The official Mykonos video is OUTSTANDING:

Such beautiful animation.
The door slammed loud and rose up a cloud of dust on us
Footsteps follow, down through the hollow sound, torn up.

And you will go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made

Pallid animals in the snow-tipped pines I find
hatching from the seed of your orphaned mind, all night

And you will go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made

Brother you don’t need to turn me away
I was waiting down at the ancient gate

You’ll go
Wherever you go today
You’ll go today

I remember how they took you down
As the winter turned the meadow brown

You’ll go
Wherever you go today
You’ll go today

When I’m walking brother don’t you forget
It ain’t often that you’ll ever find a friend

You’ll go
Wherever you go today…



(Face)ets: Pakistan and Yemen – Photography by Michelle Weitzel

By Michael McVey, Skiffleboom.com

I would say that one of the most interesting jobs I got at my sign shop, Sign-A-Rama Cambridge, was from Harvard University student Michelle Wietzel.  She and her husband Billy traveled extensively throughout Pakistan and Yemen, and Michelle brought her camera.  Throughout their journeys, Michelle took some fantastic pictures.  In 2010, the Harvard Neighbors Gallery (Loeb House) exhibited a selection of Michelle’s photography, which I was asked to print.

It was a very fun job, and a welcome break from the monotony of corporate branding.  At the show, Michelle and Billy gave me a running commentary on the images, sharing stories from their travels.  Since I always carry my trusty camera with me, I got quite a bit of it on video.  Flash forward to late February 2011, when I had a spare weekend for a quick edit and… voilà!  A brief little video scraped together (more like salvaged) from the ever growing backlog!

Hopefully this diverts/informs a few dozen internet viewers, Harvard Neighbors Gallery gets some free PR, Michelle and Billy Weitzel get a video keepsake, and Sign-A-Rama Cambridge gets to show off their printing capabilities.  Everybody wins!  Except for my carpal tunnel.  Maybe some Qat will help.


Abbie Barrett and The Last Date: “Disappointing You” Music Video

by Michael McVey, Skiffleboom.com

Here is a brand spanking new music video we made for Abbie Barrett and The Last Date. Song is called “Disappointing You” off the album Dying Day, (available on iTunes).  www.AbbieBarrett.com

Bostonians will recognize Abbie Barrett and The Last Date from the Boston music scene.  Her sound has been described as “not bad” and “good” by several people that are not related to her.  Abbie’s blend of eclectic indie folk rock has inexplicably yielded her an Academy Award nomination for Best Special Effects in a Motion Picture for the movie “AVATAR.”  Abbie Barrett and The Last Date are:

Abbie Barrett (Duh)
Alec Derian (Bass)
Jack Hamilton (Keys)
Josh Kiggans (Drums)
Steve Levy (E. Guitar)
