In May of this year, my wife turned 30 and to commemorate the event, I adapted (butchered) a song written by the David Wax Museum and performed it for her during her party. Pulling it off took a complete lack of shame on my part and some help from the song’s original creators, David Wax and Suz Slezak. The video is online if you really want to see it but you’re not going to get any help from me on where you’ll find it.
That being said, I will gladly share with you a subsequent project that grew out of our initial collaboration. I and my colleagues at Anthem Multimedia have been working with Dave and Suz to to create a REAL music video for their upcoming album “Everything is Saved” and I’m proud to announce that the video made its premier yesterday on NPR’s All Songs Considered Blog! You can see it here: “Born with a Broken Heart” Premier.
In addition to the video, I worked with David and Suz to produce stills that they could use to further promote the band and album. I think the finished products are a good example of a project that benefited from being able to keep both photo and video production “in-house”. It gave the video and photos a more cohesive style and it allowed our clients to spend less time and money managing separate projects.
Here are some of my favorites photos from the shoot.
(And if you get the chance, go see these guys live. They’re pretty amazing.)
