FEATURE FRIDAY:The Making Of A Music Video


IMG_9387
Last year, about this time I was driving up to Lubbock, TX to meet up with my lady friend, Amanda Shires, to make a west TX music video with Cotton Films, Half Bison, half the town of LBK (or so it seemed). I always like to take things apart and see how the work and what goes on behind the scenes, so I wanted to share the video and few snap shots with you.

The set included a green screen, sweaty men, ice, equipment, sun block and every method of transportation. Yes, even the Lubbock fire department came out.

I took photos, met a bunch of talented folks, and powdered a nose or two.

I learned a lot of neat tricks, like how to be a bump in the road. That man under the side car shook every vehicle better than any bump in the history of bumps. Seriously, I never thought about detail like that when making a video.

These ladies were a trip! Perfectly in character the whole time.

Back to the future? Out of all the cars, this is the one I wanted to drive off in. It was so rad!

This hat started as a joke and ended up saving me by the end of the day. The sun/heat was brutal that day. Thank God for boots, thank God for hats.

Tonight, my dear friend Amanda reaches another milestone. If you live in or near Nashville, TN, you should attend her Grand Ole Opry debute. Had I known a few months out, I would have flown out there, so if you are within driving distance, get your booty to the show!

I thought it was pretty neat. The team working on this was the best part. I love big projects that bring folks together.
