As a result of recent events, I have returned to the ever interesting world of music videos. As of Saturday I completed a shoot for some wonderful guys who go by the band name of Left Spine Down.
I have been rather reluctant to go back to shooting music videos after some internal realizations that I just can't cope with gory classical composition from the Renaissance anymore. Nor can I deal with the political ramblings of nightmarish artist / client / label clusterfests that inevitably crop up over the work one does. That said, an almost clean slate to work under, and some extremely limited lighting constraints made me take on the challenge.
It was a wonderful experience, and I would personally like to thank all of the guys: Kaine D3lay, Jeremy Inkel, Matthew Girvan, Jared Slingerland, Denyss McKnight, and Tim Hagberg. Hopefully they can keep it up long enough to build a solid audience around. Thanks also go out to Casey O'Brien for extending the invite.
The following is a production still taken by the photographer on set - Et. The extremely astute observers among you may recognize the howling shadow as Jeremy Inkel of Front Line Assembly fame.
After all was said and done, it really left me wishing that Erik Nordby would come out of hiding and we might be able to generate some creative bits again in some form. Who knows what the future may hide...
Finally, I can't give enough thanks and love go to A. and B. -- for without them none of this would be worth bothering at all.
