Our music video for local Rock Band “Secret Ingredients” is out now!
In Halfway to Texas, Secret Ingredients tell a story about escaping a toxic relationship on a trip down to the Dirty South. This video was filmed at Elevation 27 here in VB. With the help of our friend Ryan Monostori, we were able to capture the infectious energy that Secret Ingredients brings to the stage for every show.
Neon lights, pizza, video games, & hand drawn VFX!
Wring Out approached us with a simple concept: Video games with the band performing in the back of the room. We worked with them on this idea to make it bigger and bigger until reaching it’s eclectic final form. The video game footage featured in the game is from a homebrew video game created by Wring Out vocalist Joey Perez. We borrowed from the game’s color palette to dress our set, and had the talent wear shirts contrasting the three different background colors we chose. We filled out the back wall with neon signs, and complemented everything with a “Scott Pilgrim” inspired set of hand drawn VFX by our own Amanda DeVleeschower.
For our first ad shoot with “Street United” we had one simple question, “What can street soccer offer?” Street United is a VB based non-profit with an amazing message: Provide a sense of community, opportunity, and an outlet for the local youth by bringing everyone together with their love for soccer. They are an amazing company with a lot to offer, and what they provide to the community is invaluable. Check them out!
Our second music video for local Pop Punk Band “Boxford” is out now!
For our second video with Boxford, we continued the story their EP depicts. Picking up from where “Breathe” left off, months have passed, and the story continues with a somber yet hopeful feeling as they continue to try to move forward with their lives after their friend passed away. The dark subject matter is accompanied by bright & playful visuals as a Friday night tiki-themed party takes place. Throughout, you will see our very own Casey House standing out in the sea of Hawaiian shirts, as he is dressed in business casual attire. It is a very subtle theme that takes place throughout the video, as he is representative of the sadness that still lingers, and the mundane lifestyle of a 9-to-5 worker trying to make it through each day after tragedy strikes. If you are a fan of sad lyrics accompanied by happy and upbeat instrumentals, and a video to match, check this one out!
ECSC (East Coast Surfing Championship) is a surf competition that takes place here in VB. Guests come from all over to watch the surfers compete, while taking part in many other events that occur alongside the core competition.
We were selected as press for ECSC, and took full advantage of the opportunity. We trekked through the sand shooting anything and everything we saw, and interviewed sponsored guests & attendees. Shout out to the RVA-based band “Flight Club” who took to the stage and impressed us so much that we decided to have their song be the musical backbone of this video. The energy their song gives perfectly encapsulated how it felt to be there. Check out ECSC and Flight Club!
When Tom Southern, vocalist/guitarist of Suburban Key Party, approached us to create a music video for this song, he gave us free reign to do whatever we wanted. When Ethan first showed the song to the team, “Scooby Doo” was the first thing brought to mind, so we took that idea and ran a marathon with it. This video was one of the most intense productions we’ve put together, and was shot over a full weekend, across 4 separate locations, and included 12 members of cast & crew, plus the band.
For not only our first video with Boxford, but our first music video as a production company, we were lucky enough to use the stage of the renown VB venue “Shakas.” This video is the first in the “Facade” series, beginning the story of a man finding out his friend tragically passed from suicide. Despite the very serious subject matter, Boxford manages to have a consistent undertone of hope, and this rings true through the visuals accompany the track. Boxford is releasing this video in association with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and asking for donations toward the non-profit on their Facebook page! If you or a loved one is in crisis, please call the National Suicide prevention hotline at 1-800-273-TALK or contact the Crisis text line by texting TALK to 741741.
