Baggage Claim

the mystery of the Trunk Murderess

Based on actual court hearings, Baggage Claim is the perspective bending story of Winnie Ruth Judd, widely known as the Trunk Murderess. The facts, Ms. Judd arrived on a overnight express train from Arizona with 2 large suitcases. What was inside those cases were unimaginably horrific. Now we hear the opposing attorney’s version of the story as well as Ms. Judd’s final chance to clear her name. Is she a femme fetale or a victim of circumstance?

Stoked on how it came out. It’s an epic song, glad we got to do it. I had my doubts that we could pull it off, but I think we did.
I described it to some friends as a Sesame Street style video with narrative device switch ups.
The review on The Bay Bridged said basically the same thing. Haha. I could totally see Sonny having his own children’s show style thing

LA bound

10/05/2014

whew! sometimes life gives you a crossroad out of nowhere and you just have to take a path. Well without getting into a long story, I’m making the voyage to Los Angeles by Halloween. I’m excited. I’m going to miss Oakland and all the inspiration it’s given me in the years but it’s time to try making art in a different environment.
