Music Video Concept & Creation...

We enjoyed the East Austin countryside one weekend in search of a music video location for a special video project I was directing, shooting and producing. After a day of driving the back winding, roller coaster roads, getting near lost, searching for the concepts home, we found the perfect spot.

The vision: a traveling musician, in the middle of nowhere - a solitary, rugged, deserted country road less traveled, one with character, that's lived and shows its age.

The song: the monumental, Cliffs of Dover by virtuoso guitarist Eric Johnson.

I knew this crazy song being amazingly interpreted on cello, would need focus on this musicians virtuosity, and display a bright, bold and unsteady style to compliment the contrast of this unique place, instrument, music and musician, and give it the shift of power and energy it deserved. 

Very proud to have worked on this. The Texas hillside did not disappoint! On a breezy, mid-day afternoon, this country road, with character to spare, barn and winding disappearing road to boot, became a reality, and cue the car that ironically showed up at the end in the distance...well...that was just perfect timing :)
