Savory Screenshots From My Upcoming Video

Two weeks ago, I had a blast shooting a music video for “Howl at the Moon,” which is the first track from the album I recently released.  My favorite part was that my brother Tim came up from LA to appear in the video (he also played guitar on the song), and I got to shoot the breeze with him and the rest of the band during the inevitable long breaks between takes.

The video is being edited right now, and I’m anxious to share it with you.  For now, I’ll show you some screen captures from the footage we got.  The intensity you see on my face, for better or worse, isn’t an act — I get pretty maniacal when I’m in performance mode.

My fingers can get fairly maniacal too when I’m playing piano.

The full band (at least, for the purposes of the video) — Tim is on the right.  Justin Vanegas, who also appears in Steve’s Quest, is on bass.

Anjelica Zanipatin-Solis, who plays a widow in the dramatic scenes that are intercut with the shots of the band (yes, there are actors in the video too — I went all Cecil B. DeMille on this one!)

This shot showcases the dry ice that filled the room while we were on the sound stage — it gave the lighting a murky, mysterious quality.

That isn’t a black screen (or a green screen) in the background — it was just really dark.

I hope these were fun — looking forward to showing you the video!

    Hi Sara — yes, I have been delightfully busy recently, and hopefully I will show no signs of slowing down for quite some time.

    Hi Carrie — thanks — I think we’ll have an outtake reel to post after the edits are complete that will provide more juicy process goodness.

    Hi Alarna — I didn’t even think of it as a moon effect, despite the song being called “Howl at the Moon,” but now that you mention it, that’s a great observation.
