Nonfiction work & Screenings
In addition to my narrative videos, there are also a number of music videos, as well as nonfiction videos I’ve done, floating around the web on various sites. Here are links to some of my documentary work:
"UFOs and the Origin of Man": Author Kenyatta DaCosta typically does a talk at my annual “UFO Day” summer event, for cast members and friends. I caught the start of his talk on film in 2010. Early work made with a typical home video camera.
"Interview with actor James Greco": Actor James Greco answers questions from Del Rivers in a diner, while Jim Wyand looks on. The boys from Quadruple A were running camera on this one. Early work made with a typical home video camera.
"The Band 10,000 Maniacs": I interviewed and profiled the band as they toured their 2013 album "Music From The Motion Picture".
"Mary Ramsey", lead singer of 10,000 Maniacs: A video companion to my profile of the band 10,000 Maniacs.
"Del Rivers: The Documentary": A documentary dedicated to actor/lyricist/sketch comic Del River's musical output.
