Age: Older than P.T. Anderson but younger than Wes.
Occupation: Maker of kickass independent films (ok music videos and commercials mostly).
Rent: $1350 for a loft-ette on Walker Street. Small, but it has awesome southern exposure.
Profile: Emigrated from Phoenix and went to NYU Film School where he was the star student. Spends a lot of time in cafés on his titanium iBook trolling Missed Connections on Craig’s List.
Under $30: Mr. Indie is essentially a kid who never grew up. Thankfully adultescent toys are in — check out the weeping ghost lamps and salt and pepper shakers by enfant terrible Winnipegger Marcel Dzama at Giant Robot. (Lamp $150, S & P shakers $49, 437 East 9th St)
Surefire: Once a cheap foreign-made find with a quirky history, the Lomo is now an overpriced hipster accessory. (The underwater Frogeye Lomo is $75 at the ICP store, 1133 Ave. of The Americas)
Fantasy Gift: Chances are Mr. Integrity hasn’t handled a decent piece of equipment since he was in school. Make him very very happy with a high-end vid camera. (The Canon XL-H1 is $8,999 at B&H, 420 Ninth Ave)
The Counterintuitive Gift: Cooking classes. It’s time he got out there and met some real people, not to mention learning a skill he can actually use. And those cooking class chicks are way hot! (McDougal Miette Culinary Studio $65-$90, 212-460-9322)
