Last weekend I snuck out of Springfield for a long weekend with my fellow fraternity brothers up north. We spent three days at the Dave Matthews Caravan in Chicago, listening to some great musical talent. Dave Matthews Band, KiD CuDi, O.A.R., The Flaming Lips, and Yonder Mountain String Band were some of the featured artists [...]
So we are making a video for Ben Bedford; Springfield, Illinois native. Here are a couple behind the scenes pictures from the shoot. The album is up on Facebook. If you are really bored, head over to flickr to see the entire album. Also, check out his album “land of the shadows”.
While on a recent garage-sailing expedition (when I say recent…I’m thinking, 3 or 4 weeks ago?) I came across the amassed record collection of several elderly people who probably just updated to cassette players. At a quarter a piece, I got kind of excited, because to me that was a deal (to the [...]
Next Filligar video has been released. Here’s the Youtube and Vimeo version, along with some more behind the scenes production notes.
We’re going to be releasing a new Filligar video soon, but in the meantime, here’s a quick look at some of the post-production work we’ve been doing.

During a break in our shooting of the main set of videos that will be coming, Casey Gibson, keyboardist, narrated and demonstrated one of his effect pedals. This specific pedal was featured in a couple shots from [...]
We all took up the train to Chicago last week to shoot the band Filligar. They rented out different studios at Electrical Audio, so we got some different looks on the different days we were shooting. The goal was the recreate the look and feel of when they recorded their album, The Nerve, there. If [...]
My friend’s band Chasing Amira headlined at a pretty cool venue called Zeke’s near the Iowa State campus along with Automatic Love Letter. It was a great show and I attempted to take a couple of pictures, but, I’m not really a photographer, so in all honesty, these are probably the only two shots that [...]
