An excerpt from the never-released Juice Weasels Rough Cuts Bluray disc. I did all of the camera work and post-production.
From 1983 until 2003, my brother and I owned and ran a chain of video stores known as Video Place. This is my homage to that business and the good ole days of VHS video :-)
This video documents the making of the Juice Weasels' I want to Kill You video.
These baby hawks fell from their nest and were then rescued by Karen. After a couple of days of feeding and caring for them, Karen located a local bird sanctuary where we could take them for proper care and rehabilitation.
After several years of owning our love birds, we have been wondering why they have not produced any babies yet. This video might explain the reason. It appears the female is done before the male, but we'll leave that discussion for you and your loved ones. Enjoy the video and please share the love with others.
My brother and Juice Weasel lead singer Tom Bennett provided the sound track used in this video.

This is a video I did for a class I was taking at Cal State San Bernardino. Later it was used for display in one of the classrooms during the Grand Opening ceremony for the MSJC Business and Technology Center.
Recorded in November of 2011 with post-production completed by Bennett Media in the spring of 2012.
Since my original My World video became much too long and too large of a file to deal with in editing, I cut it down to several smaller vignettes. This video is the second of the four-part series.
On Wednesday, July 30th, 2014 the finals for the Riverside Sings competition were held at Fairmont Park and after the dust had cleared my brother Tom emerged the winner. This is the video of his song shot from my handheld Canon HD video camera.
This is one of the early videos I worked on with the Juice Weasels.
Lovely Rita was the Juice Weasels first concerted effort at a music video. This behind-the-scenes video documents the fun and frivolity which took place during the video recording sessions.
This video was edited together from several band practices I shot with my first HD camcorder. That's my son Rob playing the lead on guitar and my brother Tom doing lead vocals.
This video demonstrates how to use Adobe Smart Objects for Web production.
This is a 1975 super 8mm film that I wrote, directed, and edited for Miller/Davidson's history class at Poly High. The film starred Ann Yeager, Becky Bell, Kelly Raftery, and myself, with cameos from my brothers Tom and Rick, Dave Spezia and his brother Mike, Casey Raftery, Trish Raftery, Paul Moss, and Dave Alexander. The structure is loosely based on Blazing Saddles and Mel Brook's campy style of film-making. Bill Slazo and Wally Londo's House of Inventions gets it name from the George Carlin album, an Evening with Bill Slazo and Wally Londo.
This is part 1 of 11 of my Network Management lecture for the Introduction to Networking and Data Communications course that I taught.

As an amateur photographer I have taken literally thousands of photographs throughout my life. This video is a photo essay of my best sky images taken over the course of the last six years.
In 1976 several Riverside Polytechnic High classmates from Miller & Davidson's history class got together one weekend on the beach off 10th st. in Newport California, to record (on super 8mm film) a script written by Bill Bennett who also directed and edited the film. What you see here is the results of that effort, a campy spoof on techniques used by a quasi-Gestalt psychologist known as "Fritz" shown in several films that semester in Miller/Davidson's class. The video stars Tobin Hood, Don Slaughter, Dave Brewster, Bill Tuxhorn, Chrissy Williams, Dave Spezia, and Marty Van Housen. Cameo appearances by Brent Moss, Patti Munaretto, and Sandy Grisham.
My son Rob and I were asked by our friend and client Ken to participate in the making of his 30 second cable commercial.
This is a digital transfer from super 8mm film shot by my dad in 1966. That's me in the Batman costume and brother Tom as Robin. My mom had hand sewn both costumes and my dad did the mock-up of the Bat mobile.
Originally this was shot with a super-8mm Sears movie Camera. I transferred the original digitally to edit and add music to it. The footage is of my father, after the 1968 Western Days parade, shaving off a beard he grew for the scroungiest beard contest.

Patches, along with her brother Frankie, were found in a shed in our backyard, born from a feral mother. My wife, Karen bottle fed them goats' milk until they could eat solid food.
Frankie is our favorite lap cat. He is just one big squishy fur ball.
This video I shot and edited as an advertising video in order to let potential buyers view Noche's smooth gate online. The video was first recorded using a VHS Handycam and then transfered to digital using one of my first digital editing systems.
