[#TBT] Amber Flight @ Side Street 2015

Here’s another edition of #TBT!

This time, it involves the Elgin/Chicago-based band Amber Flight. They played some fun dance rock for the people at Side Street and I got two of their songs on video.




[#TBT] Steve Barnes and Zach Draper: Girl From The North Country (Bob Dylan Cover)

Here’s this week’s Throwback video!

Steve Barnes and fellow musician Zach Draper were busking right outside of Rediscover Records with some acoustic tunes. They both covered a Dylan tune as I filmed them right outside the shop.

[#TBT] Watercolour: Ulysses Music Video

Here’s this week’s Throwback Thursday!

This is a music video I made for the Newcastle-based indie folk band Watercolour. I made this video last year and it was the second one I’ve ever created. I’m glad that my buddy Dave showed their music to me. He’s also cousins with two of the members. It was the first time I used some brief stop motion animation in there. I wanted to use some abstract footage to play along with the lyrics and meta-narrative of the Odyssey with the famous scene involving the sirens and how it ties into someone being tempted with various luxuries (cars, money, having pretty women around the character in the video, etc.) with all these pictures. After all, aren’t those desires paper thin?

Feel free to stream (and buy) their EP right here.
