I was asked to shoot some footage of the band Red Tide Rising at a venue as well as of them rehearsing in order to create a short commercial for their Inferno – The Experience tour. This 1 minute commercial was put together for them to post online and create interest in their tour.

Its Saturday and I have work to do, but I wanted to take a moment to jot some thoughts down. Late last year, an idea came up regarding a “what if” scenario. It was a cool thought and Marguerite and I talk about it once in a while. She watches a lot of reality shows and after begging me to sit and watch an episode of Intervention, I conceded and sat and watched the predictable “Oh my father never loved me so I decided to do heroin”. Yes I have watched several episodes and they always start off with “He/She was a beautiful perfect baby” and it just went downhill from there. Anyway one case on the show was particularly interesting and it seemed to feed into my “what if” storyline and it kept playing in my head until I had to address it and explore where it was going. Of course I won’t give away the details as I always feel when I do, the idea gets taken from me and given to someone else so here I am staking my claim on my story. Don’t take it ( cue Steven from Braveheart “Its my island!” ).

This is my second music video. I shot this over the summer on my own. We went around several locations around Denver. More posts to come regarding this video as I have learned soo much from doing this.
I recently got the opportunity to film a demo reel for aerialist, Adrienne Jadwinski. When I was asked to do this, I went and did some research to see what a typical aerial demo would look like. I had some shot ideas that came to mind and just looked around to see if anyone had done what I had in mind. I didn’t really see much out there other than recordings from live events so I had an opportunity to do something unique because I had full control of the shots and angles. Adrienne had a space that had lighting and was large enough so that I could shoot anywhere I wanted to.
I think my favorite shot was when she was on the silk and twirled down. Being able to shoot it from the floor was something I have wanted to do for a while and I was lucky enough to do it. I was a bit scared, I mean I was hand holding the shot and having someone fly down right at you is quite the feeling.
Overall I had a great time filming this and I hope it gives her what she wants and look forward to seeing the response from it.
Just a quick update. I found out that the music video for Finding Home will be released September 24th at the Oriental Theater in Denver. I am very excited….and nervous, but wow another great premiere for my work. I just assume I get it played a couple of times on Youtube, so this is almost surreal to me to find this out.
I am working on a music video for a Denver band called Red Tide Rising and posted some screenshots of my editing session. I am using Premiere Pro CS5.5 to edit and do post ( After Effects ). I love the Warp Stabilizer tool to clean up my pans. I am using PVC piping with a dolly and it is not exactly smooth if the ground is uneven. Ill be doing my post mortem for this video shoot when its complete ( and after I do one for my first video shoot haha ). Anyway before its released I thought I’d throw some of my works in progress.
Last night was the premiere of ASiEL‘s new single “East Side”. It was held at Tracks night club where it played to a full house. I was there along with the cast of the film. ASiEL made an amazing spectacle of this video. I was expecting to do it for him and have it released via youtube or some other outlet, but he made this video and movie soo much more. The promotion, the release, the word of mouth made this video a major event when it was released. The response was amazing and hearing the talking and conversation during and after it played made me realize that the hard work and steep learning curve paid off in the end.
I watch Conan a lot. I subscribe to his fan page and all that fun stuff and one day I saw that his side kick Andy Richter was having the fans come up with a dance move to combat Conans signature dance. Well, my girlfriend has her own dance studio so I showed it to her and suggested she come up with a dance move and enter the contest. I, of course would film the thing and do all the editing. Nothing big, but it was fun. Anyway she and her friends came up with a routine and we filmed it for entry.
Here is what we filmed:
Fast forward a few weeks and here are the results. Nothing major, but it was cool to see it…and of course Andy saying my name was ever soo dreamy.
I am seeing more and more of these types of articles about how businesses are using video to promote themselves.
