After casting Stacy Zeiler Kenyon as the lead for Rex Robards “Whiskey Wrote This Song” music video, Stacy invited me to a fashion show for her Siren Swimwear line as a fundraiser for Threads of Hope, a nonprofit whose goal is to stop the abuse and trafficking of children in the Philippines. I offered to make a little montage of the event, originally thinking I would just drop my EX1 at the end of the runway and pick some shots with my T2i and make a little 3-5 minute vid.
I had totally planned on keeping it simple. By the time the date rolled around I had had the idea of opening with black and white stills of the pre-show after seeing some of the pics of the makeup Stacy planned on using. I also added another EX1, another T2i, and just for grins a GY-HM100U because a friend had one. And by the time I got to editing the 3-5 minute montage was out the window and I ended up with this nearly 15 minute version of the show.
The hair and makeup and Stacy’s vision for the show was just breathtaking, the models (who by the way are not professional models but friends of Stacy’s) did such an amazing job, well, I really couldn’t have made this any shorter could I?

Recently I ran a special here in Austin for ten local bands to get a way cheap HD music video. This is the first band that took me up on it.
Not to much to say about this one conceptually, because of the low budget we just needed to have a cool location that would lend itself to the mood/tone of the song. Shot with a Sony EX1 w/Letus35 Extreme, edited in Sony Vegas, and color corrected with Magic Bullet. One night of filming, three days or so of editing, and “”Voilà!”, ya got yourself a music video!
