We’ve worked to write, shoot, and edit several music videos for artists in our home state, including electronic pop duo MAIDS, the 12-piece rock group, Canby, and the activist poetry collective, Peace Poets. Concepts have ranged from short-story narratives to coordinated ballet pieces synced up to the music. In order to keep prices affordable for small artists, we’ve been able to accomplish all of this with small teams of people, learning to stretch the bounds of our resources to make memorable, creative works of art.
As part of this album’s release promotion, I created eight one-minute videos — one for each song — from archival video footage.
Days before Donald Trump’s inauguration, the Peace Poets wrote a new poem about the opportunities and challenges that face those who oppose the new President. This was a very simple, low-budget video, conceived about an hour before it was shot.
