This was my first music video for a normal(ish) pop song, with a manageable length. I wanted to capture the lo-fi fun of my favorite 80's videos.
I filmed the band against a green screen and got tons of good footage. So the real challenge was editing, compositing, and coming up with backgrounds. I got to do some fooling around with a laserdisc player, a VCR, and an old Panasonic video mixer/processor.

This was my first attempt at creating a music video. The challenge was to keep the visuals interesting throughout the rather lengthy track. Hopefully I pulled it off, but it took me a very long time to make.

A music video for my own song... Again, it is a lengthy track, but I decided to go a little more minimal this time around. I definitely didn't want to appear in the video, so instead I came up with this TV floating in space.
I pillaged the video for the TV from an improvised, unfinished movie that I made with my sister years ago.
I later came across the music video "Under the Weird Moons" by the very cool Jack Name, which seems quite similar. It made me feel like I was on the right track!
