Back in December I was invited by the producers of Shamrock Fest to come shoot one of the celtic rock bands on this year's line up, Scythian. It was a crazy-fun experience, their energy on staged was barely surpassed by that of the sold out crowd at the 9:30 Club that night. Check out the performance video I put together today.
This has got to be the coolest short film I've ever seen and it just so happens to include the three loves of my life: photography, music, and Rome. Check this out, it's called "Notte Sento" by Urban Team and it was shot with 4,500+ still frames on a Canon 30D. Insane.
I think I've recited those lyrics just about every Sunday for the last 8 years-- yes, that would make me a Plain White T's fan long before ABC Family ever found them, and certainly way before Delilah ever came into fiction. I was obsessed with them in high school, and more so with the fact that no one knew who they were. It came as a huge surprise hearing them on the radio for the first time only a few years ago.
Anyways, the reason for this post is that finding music videos on TV is almost impossible-- unless you happen to be watching VH1 at like 5 AM on a Sunday, like Today. "Hey There Delilah" by the T's just so happens to be one of my all-time favorite videos. I really enjoy the artistic direction of it. Certainly something different. Check it out.
...but it's going to be my year!(lyrics from "Weightless" by All Time Low)
My friend Cisco who used to play with Vanilla Sky sent me the link to the video from which today's title was selected. I guess being in a band, he's probably shared in similar thoughts. As a concert photographer, ergo a regular concert attendee, I always wondered what the bands and people around me were thinking. I think this video confirms my suspicions.
Anyways, I'll actually be photographing All Time Low tonight at Towson University. 6 PM, $24. If you're in the area, check em out with We The Kings, Cartel, and Days Difference
