Sometimes, the best place to think is on the road. Music by Hisato Higuchi. Buy the album on iTunes. You can view or download the larger-sized photos or watch the slideshow.

Mr. Concentration & Mr. ADD

It is always intriguing to see yourself through other people’s eyes. Ajit wrote this and it is loosely based on the conflict in my creative life. It was shot, acted and edited by me.

Riding in Stride opening

Additional formats: QUICKTIME

This is the unofficial opening scene to a documentary completed last year. It is currently playing at select PBS stations, check your local listings.

Riding In Stride (25:30 mins.) probes the age-old relationship between girls, women and horses by documenting girls on ponies and women at the racetrack, including interviews with veteran jockey PJ Cooksey, trainer Joan Scott, and bestselling author Mary Midkiff. Riding in Stride focuses on women who have carried that passion into their adult lives and reveals what it takes for women to make it in the racing industry while staying dedicated to their love for horses.

This opening scene was split up in the final cut for many logistical reasons. But I have always had a fondness for it in its original state.

Riding in Stride was directed by Rachel Connolly, edited by me (Ajit Anthony Prem) with music composed by Carmela Sinco. If you would like to buy a DVD, go to

Mr. & Mrs. Blue Skies

Additional formats: QUICKTIME

September 7th marks three exciting years since meeting my Wife. In that time, my life has changed dramatically for the best. It seems like I finally have a life!

This video should certainly remind you of being forced to sit through the family vacation videos by your parents. If it doesn’t then you should watch it a couple of times.

Music: Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra

I did not want to play on the “egomaniac” tilt of the vlogworld and it sounds like I succeeded.

One Sunday

Just a normal Sunday. so many seemingly simple moments throughout the day. From the guys “scoring” outside to my daughter’s simple expressions. All just moments within a greater whole. I love my Sundays.
