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.

No, it’s not really in 3D… there are some pretty sick animations in here anyway.

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:

Video #21 – “Mr. Tragedy” by The Slackers

January 14, 2011 1 comment

…open up your eyes, or this whole world is gonna pass you by…

Finally! It’s been a long time coming but here’s our video featuring The Slackers. One of the coolest things about this album (The Great Rocksteady Swindle) is that it was truly a team effort – each of the Slackers took a turn at writing. This video is for the kinda morbid, kinda bizarre “Mr. Tragedy” written by drummer Ara Babajian.

We shot this back in October at C-Squat. The Slackers are: Ara Babajian, Marcus Geard, Dave Hillyard, Jayson Nugent, Glen Pine, Vic Ruggiero. Cinematography by Jeff Brink, with some G&E help from Jorge Garza and Spencer Shangkaun and PA Pam Karp. The animations for this eventually became labors of love for animatorRobinson Deckert and myself.

So come with us on an adventure into the surreal with “Mr. Tragedy” and The Slackers.

Again, special thanks to Bill and co at C-Squat. Be sure to check out The Slackers upcoming shows in the next couple months.

Video #5 – “Sake Tsunami” by Chi’ Akai

Apologies for the delay folks. Major computer problems on the part of many of our team. BUT here it is, video #5 featuring “Sake Tsunami” by Chi’ Akai and the animation of Robinson Deckert. If you’ve still got your 3D glasses from Step-Up or (I hope) Piranha, I’d say put ’em on for this one.
