A Moment Forever

I had the privilege of shooting video for two of my amazing friends Tony Morelli and Sarah Tavares (now Sarah Morelli) this past October. Tony created the website for Eight Armed Studio a few years ago. He’s an amazing designer and musician (he composed the music for his wedding…) and Tony and Sarah are easily two of the nicest people I have ever met. I am honored to present them with a freshly edited wedding video.
Tony and Sarah had their wedding at the Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, Maine. Amazing view of the White Mountains from up there. I decided to throw together a highlight reel of everything that was documented though the lens that night. Lots of friends, family, and fun. Here it is:

Casey and Matt's Super Show

Casey and Matt’s Super Show


I had the pleasure of being on Matt and Casey’s Super Show this past week. We discussed music, lighting things on fire, and a little bit about Eight Armed Studio. Both of these guys are really good friends on mine and they made me travel all the way across the street to be on this show (Matt literally lives the building across from me). I’ve helped out both Casey (Hetfield & Hetfield, Astronoid) and Matt (SuperStoker) in their past and present bands with design/video work. I decided, well since I do video work and I’m going to be on this podcast tonight, why not shoot a little video! (since I never like to give myself a rest). Both of these guys are hilarious, they have over 400 subscribers now, and I’ve enjoyed being there as part of the audience almost as much as I enjoyed being on this episode. Check out some choice clips from the show

SuperStoker will be coming out with a killer video for the song currently title “GnarSong” off their new album. It is definitely their heaviest song to date and the video (Produced by Evan Crane) uses that fact to it’s advantage. Half party, half horror film bloodbath. Heck, the shirt I wore that night is still stained red, that ain’t coming out. Here’s some behind the scenes shots

One of the most talented musicians, audio engineers, and a good friend of mine Brett Boland asked me to do photos for his studio, Brett Boland Recording.
Knowing Brett from the band Hetfield&Hetfield you can tell by the way he thrashes the drums he’s no ordinary drummer and wait till you hear what his new project Astronoid is becoming. I don’t think you’re ready for this.

 

Brett was previously an intern a Zing Recording Studio (yea THAT Zing) before finding his own studio space in Newburyport,MA. Since then he has recorded Vattnet Viskar (Century Media Records), Super Stoker, Mt. Meridian, and Happy Time Harry just to name a few. I have yet to hear a bad band that Brett has recorded.

 

So Back to the photos. This is what we came up with

Harvey Uncouth has released his solo record titled “I Believe In Harvey Uncouth”
Nine solid hip-hop tracks that are musically diverse but still cohesive
Every record i’ve heard from Harvey has been progressively more mature. Always a step in the right direction

Since I have had the privilege of designing the album artwork for the last three singles and as constructed a logo for the villainous MC, he had me design the artwork for “I Believe In Harvey Uncouth”

 

Me and Harvey had some ideas from the beginning starting with a photo shoot.
Just a plain black background that we could knock out in Photoshop

Then drawing inspiration from Harvey Dent’s campaign from the Dark Knight, some dark and grungy textures, a photo of NYC I took 5 years ago, we came up with:

I Believe In Harvey Uncouth

thanks to the vector skills of Chou Design for designing the “Harvey Uncouth” name

 

Wondering what this album sounds like? Here’s my favorite track Bonfires In December

We’ve got a lot of media packed into this one today! We’ve been working with Harvey Uncouth on album art, live video, and a logo. I’ve known Harvey for years. If you’ve ever seen the destructive force known as Rebels of Art then you know Harvey throws down some serious rhymes. Since the split of Rebels of Art Harvey Uncouth and Elvis McFly have gone on to work on their own projects. The lyrical material seems to have matured over the years, but don’t think that the occasional reference comic books and sic-fi movies are gone. Harvey’s got some new singles up on SoundCloud that we have produced artwork for, and they’re some of his best songs yet!:
the Papers

Simply Undefined

Pardon Me Brotha
Definitely one of my favorite tracks. Listen up:

Harvey was looking for a logo and we sketched out some ideas on some post-its. Since we both know he is an agent of chaos, this seemed fitting:

Beneath the Sheets had got Harvey Uncouth on the bill for their show at the Middle East in Cambridge, which ended up selling out quickly. The show was Harvey’s first show back on the scene and Beneath the Sheets were celebrating the release of their new single “She’s Bad and She Knows It” so the venue was packed. If you don’t believe me, here’s some video evidence:

there’s plenty more video from the show, so keep watching the skies…and YouTube for new tracks. #haileightarmed

the Good, the Bad, and the Undead

This week we started working on a new music video for Sub7 and the Undead. This will be a cut off their NEW album “Symphony in Blood”. Symphony in Blood is a sequel (part 2) in a series of concept albums. This song will follow Alistair Darkwater and his revenge on the gypsy family that cursed him. There’s blood, vampires, angels, and a group of girls that will tear your heart out and eat it for breakfast.
I have been working closely with Alistair on his vision and what part of the story we will be telling with this next video. I’ve heard the song and this video is going to ROCK. Since it is a concept album and it is meant to tell a story, the video is basically a short horror film. There’s nothing I enjoy more than rock n’ roll, blood, and film.
We got some great shots and it was a perfect weekend to shoot in the backwoods and backyards of Dunstable, MA despite the cold nights haha. Dawn and Scott were great hosts, they let us use their land and in return the girls got to show their gratification by sinking their teeth into their necks! Everyone wins!
Excited for the new album, this one is gonna be heavy!! Expect more updates on the progress from our Twitter and Facebook pages. Here’s some behind the scenes shots to peak your interest:

Lots of blood, good times, and good friends. Hope you’re all thirsty for more!!
