Bustelo Coffee Parody Commercial – 2013

How to Write an Essay – 2013

This is the first in an upcoming series of instructional videos for writing composition. This brief video presentation shows you the basic elements of an academic essay structure, including the introduction, body paragraphs and the conclusion. This instructional video was created for an English Composition course at Full Sail University. If you’re a new student entering any college or university for the first time, or returning to school after a long absence, this video should help you adopt a proper organizational essay structure.

Little 5 Year Old DJ – 2011

Just a dad having some fun with his son and a camera. Dionysus following in dad’s footsteps as he rocks out to dad’s track. The mixing skills are on point, but don’t sleep on the dancing moves though. Music: Lula vs. Wilson Santos “The DJ, the Music and Me” Eddie Cumana mix for Kult Records. Shot, directed, edited by Wilson Santos.

On The Dominican Road – 2009

A typical Dominican road trip from Santo Domingo to Bavaro and back. The image quality sucks since this was shot with a cheap 3meg digital camera, but you get the idea. I could’ve used some Bachata as background music, but this is done as a visual homage to Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” and Kerouac didn’t listen to Bachata. Coltrane and Miles seemed more appropriate.

Central Park, NYC – 2005

Shot and edited by Wilson Santos using a cheap 3meg camera. This video captures a typical summer weekend in central park, the heart and soul of New York City, with dancers, drummers, skaters and lovers. The track is titled “Love Song” by Nadirah Shakoor. The footage was rescued from an old hard drive that was about to be trashed.
