Day 30 – “Hey Hey” by The Graves

August 8, 2011 1 comment

And if you sing along with us, better give it all you’ve got!

And with this video, we come to the end of our 30 day journey. I hope you had as much fun watching these videos as we did making them. The amount of support and talent that has come out of this project is overwhelming.

At first we had some difficulty deciding what to do for this band that’s based way out West. Eventually I came up with this. This song is quite an anthem and I figured it would be a nice way to bring all of our artists together. Please enjoy “Hey Hey” by The Graves.

Once again, I’d like to thank all the artists and filmmakers who participated in this project.

Oh what a night!

What a fantastic night Tuesday! So many thanks to all of you who made it out to show your support. We seriously could not do this without each and every one of you. From day one, the goal has been to find artists who would never otherwise share a stage or a label or a fanbase and bring them all together in one space. To give our filmmakers and musicians the freedom to take risks and visualize music as they feel it. To let people discover music and their own personal connections to these songs.

Katra Lounge was PULSING with talent Tuesday night! To see some artists finally meet their editors and animators for the first time, to hear that some artists have videos lined up with their Project 30 in 30 directors in the future, to have this all come together under one roof is exactly why we began the project in the first place. I could not be more pleased and excited for what’s to come!

Stay tuned for the upcoming web premiere of videos for Miles Megaciph, Auzriel and The Graves.

In the mean time, enjoy the photos from this amazing night:

Shooting the Slackers at C-Squat, aka one of the most surreal afternoons ever

October 28, 2010 1 comment

Spent the afternoon shooting a video for The Slackers at the legendary C-Squat over in my old hood. Wicked short shoot but I suppose that added to the surreality of it all. Seeing the location in person for the first time, yesterday, was also a trip – graffiti everywhere, broken guitars and mic stands stacked in the corner, a beautiful beautiful old piano harp, a pair of someone’s pants to help block out the last shaft of light coming through the corner of the ceiling high windows. Many thanks to Bill and Jill (and Brett and Jon) at C-Squat (and the other house members who stopped by/put up with us being there).

Despite some delays, all Slackers were willing and ready to go w/ this shoot. Quite a challenge given that they’d just come off a tour and that a bunch of their other acts/solo projects have been touring as well. Not to mention the next leg of a Slackers tour coming up next month.

There’s something really bizarre about shooting a band who you’ve heard countless times though had not really met before (as a whole). Not to mention whose music had gotten you through so many big (and little) life moments. So really, thanks Ara, Marcus, Jay, Vic, Glen, and Dave for getting together, and getting THIS together, and making today happen.

Also super super thanks to our skeleton crew, Jeff Brink DP extraordinaire, G&E Jorge Garza and Spencer Shangkuan taking time out of their busy schedules to help light this crazy crazy location, and Pam Karp for helping make sure everything was under control.

Check out some pictures. Get ready for an intense animation/live action video. Wild.

In the mean time, enjoy this video directed/shot by Michael Raynes, edited by Kevin Chew and featuring actors, Leo Fallon, Alec Signorino, Gabrielle Miller, Flannery Spring-Robinson, and Pamela Karp. Starring the musicians, Jonny B Goodman and Joe Del Balzo. Shot at the beautiful Judson Memorial Church. Enjoy!

And we’re BACK!

First off, special thanks to Robinson Deckert for lending his computer.

Great shoot today with Emily Kinney for a song off her new/soon to be released EP. Beautiful shots above ground at Riverside Park this time and enjoying the fall weather along Columbus Ave.

And now, after quite some delay, here’s video #7 by a bunch of awesome dudes, Superhuman Happiness. Many thanks to the band (Stuart, Luke, Ryan, Jared, Nikhil and Miles) for a pre-gig/soundcheck shoot. And thanks to Coco66, where the band is having their October residency, for letting us shoot there. Directed by Pam Karp (including a cameo), live concert footage shot by Jorge Garza and David Dubuc. Stills by yours truly. Gotta love that pixillation. Enjoy!!
