Working on Music Videos

This weekend is a busy one. 
My friend, classmate from film school and favourite music video director Derek will be directing another 2 videos this weekend. 
The videos are both for an up and coming Toronto artist Dirty Radio.
I'm excited.  It's been a while since I've worked on a crew.

Here are the videos we've worked on before.
I was the assistant director for each of these and they were all shot in Thunder Bay, ON.

The first video doesn't exist online!  It was made in 2004, and my younger sister and her friends were dancers.   It was fun but maybe just too embarrassing for everyone involved now.

The second was for the young punk band Amelia.  No idea if these guys are even still together.  It was 2005.

Then we did Alright Okay for Webster Death.   This video is my favourite.  

And the last one, in 2008, was also for Webster Death. This is The Script.

Both of the videos that we made with Webster Death went on to win awards at Cravefest in Toronto. 
The shoots are always a ton of work, but in the end it's so worth it. 
This is dedication - the director, hiding behind the wrapper and holding moose antlers that weigh a ton.   It's all about getting the shot.

I'll share photos of this weekend's activities soon.  Hope your weekend is great!
