The Peelander-Z shoot for “So Many Mike” was a huge success! I want to say thank you to everyone that came and danced their asses off! It was a lot of fun. Even more fun than expected! Though it was the most ghetto shoot I’ve ever been on, with a tiny, tiny crew and lots of favors pulled, we luckily scheduled the shoot well enough that we ended shooting about an hour earlier than expected, so the band got to play an impromptu concert for the fans. It was awesome. And thanks go out to Brooklyn Vegan for promoting the event on their site. And the above photo was stolen from Oscar Matos’ posting on Peelander-Z’s Facebook fan page. I wish I’d brought a stills camera, but unfortunately I didn’t.
We have now begun post-production on the video, and we’re trying out some cool effects that I’m excited about, but since everyone is donating their time for the love of the project, it might take a little longer than usual to complete. Things are already looking great though, and the post team is super excited, which is actually quite rare for a project like this. Everyone loves Peelander-Z!
In other news, the music video for The Metermaids got a special online exclusive premiere deal at MySpace Music! Though the encode on the site looks terrible, in only a few days it racked up over 14,500 views on MySpace alone! That’s an impressive number for ANY music video premiere and it exceeded all of our hopes and expectations! Due to the success on MySpace Music, AOL now wants to feature it on their front page in the coming weeks.

The music video I shot for Twisted Sister recently played on MTV. At the very last minute, we had to switch out some shots due to gun imagery. That was a hassle, but I’m glad it got resolved and got some airplay.
