Shot mainly as one continuous live take, my intention is to show the musicians without any studio trickery. I set up multiple cameras on tripods while I operated a camera on a monopod or steadicam.
This is sort of my baby, so my role in these music videos is pretty all-encompassing. I book the artist, coordinate the shoots, set up the equipment, style, direct, and shoot and edit the video. I also mix the audio, usually recorded multitrack.
