MIDWAY IN WAKE “THEY’LL COME FOR US” (Lyric Video)
Using footage selected and sync’d by Greg Reynaud (aka Midway In Wake), I made this lyric video for the song “They’ll Come For Us,” which is the first single of his second record — a concept album entitled, “Heirs To The Storm.”
ELLIOTT SMITH “BOTTLE UP AND EXPLODE (ALTERNATE VERSION)” (LYRIC VIDEO)
Using some older footage that I shot during a July 4th celebration, I created this lyric video for Elliott Smith’s “Bottle Up and Explode (Alternate Version)” that was released as part of the ‘Either/Or : Expanded Edition’ album released in 2017.
HARI KONDABOLU “BOYS WILL BE BOYS” (LIVE CLIP)
This clip was taken from the live recording of Hari Kondabolu’s second album, ‘Mainstream American Comic,’ at Mississippi Studios in Portland, OR. The bit’s focal point is toxic masculinity, and what can, or should be assumed when people say “Boys Will Be Boys.”
ELLIOTT SMITH ‘EITHER/OR: EXPANDED EDITION’ (TRAILER)
Using the previously unreleased track “I Figured You Out” (debuted at The New York Times) and a handful of previously unseen photos of ‘Either/Or’ era Elliott Smith — taken from the personal archive of original publicist, Felice Ecker — I made a short trailer for the ‘Either/Or: Expanded Edition’ package.
HUNGER GAMES IV: PREQUEL TO THE QUARTER QUELL (CONCEPT ART)
Wouldn’t it be great if this whole debacle really was just some elaborate, viral marketing campaign for a new prequel trilogy of the Hunger Games?
With a bit of editing and re-organization, the visuals from this piece of public domain footage sync’d up nearly perfectly with the song’s lyrical and instrumental content. Lyrics like “I was wasted on floor” take on a new meaning when juxtaposed against footage of women assembling 50mm shells in factories.
In this bit from ‘Solid Gold,’ Amy Miller explains her ethnicity and talks about why she’s confident in her use of the term “white trash” in mixed company. HINT: It has something to do with a crow and a wizard. [Additional Camera: Elijah Hasan]
