The following links are to selections of my video work from over the past 2 decades, in no particular order. They range in scope from the straightforward to the absurd, from educational documentaries to experimentally bizarre. In some clips, I am featured as an actor or performer, in others, I filmed and/or edited them. The details can be found on my vimeo page-> https://vimeo.com/fmathlorenz

This clip is a short out take from graduate school at NYU in 2002 where I demonstrate my custom-built noise instrument that can be played without physically touching it.
W0RKF0RCE – “How it’s Crayed”
In this video, a W0RKF0RCE parody of TV show “How it’s Made”, viewers are treated to a crash-course in DIY costume & mask design. We demonstrate how to configure a number of the colorful “Snouts” featured in W0RKF0RCE performance art scenarios.
In the southeast corner of Germany, in the region called Upper Bavaria, is the Chiemgau. And in the town of Stein an der Traun, underneath the cliff castle can be found the castle brewery Steiner Brauerei. Since 1489, this castle brewery has been making high-quality beer, while using ecological sustainable means. In Bavaria beer must be brewed to the “Reinheitsbegot”, a 500 + year purity law: Water, Hops, and Grain. Bavaria also gets much of its energy from sustainable means with an emphasis on renewable energy. The Steiner Brewery combines traditional brewing with ecologically sustainable techniques. Its unique relationship to the local community and respect to the environment make for an interesting story.
This chaotic ensemble of chromatic characters recasts the classic struggle between good and evil into a chaotic choreography of additive and subtractive colors. The 1st WORKFORCE performance was a free show at Voltaire Street Space in Ocean Beach in 2005.
Forrofluid Waveform Generator
This one is demonstration of an experimental multi-media instrument I worked on while in graduate school at NYU. The project was a joint venture with Jimmy Chung while we were at ITP in 2002.
Ruta Del Jaka – “Gringaso”
In the summer of 2004 I worked as an actor in an independent film shot on locations throughout Peru. After the production was finished, I staged a day-long series of site-specific performances & installations in the mountain city of Huaraz.
OBITS – “Pine On”
In 2008 I was asked to make a music video for the Brooklyn-based band OBITS. The video chronicles a bizarre experiment conducted with specimens fished out of the Newtown Creek in Greenpoint, one of the most polluted waterways in the nation.
Flight around Matterhorn
I shot this clip from a Llama helicopter in 2009 while shadowing a Eurocopter EC145 on a hoist demonstration near Zermatt in the Swiss Alps. It remains, to this day, the wildest ride I’ve ever taken.
Willoughby Skate Crew
When I moved to Bushwick in 2006, I started teaching some of the local kids on my block how to set up, ride & maintain skateboards.
