[#TBT] Eagle Spits: Side Effects [Live @ Cornerstone Festival 2011]

Here’s a throwback video dating back 6 years ago.

This is my British friend Eagle Spits based out of Boston, England (no, not Massachusetts). He’s a punk poet who uses conscious themes for his lyrics.

[#TBT] The Old-Timers: Mammon

Here’s this week’s TBT video.

It’s the first music video I ever created for the South African/Scottish hardcore band The Old-Timers. This was a mix of some royalty-free open source footage with my own that I filmed. It was really fun and I certainly enjoyed using a mix of different images to pertain to some of the lyrics. This video even comes as a bonus to anyone who buys The Old-Timers’ EP Spiritus Sanctus. The digital version of the EP is free/pay-what-you-want on Bandcamp, but I highly encourage you to buy their music.

[#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.

Thanks!
