Late October was a crazy time for us. We were working hard in order to produce a music video for Clocks and Clouds. A ton of planning went into trying to create the mood of the piece. We rented lights, borrowed some set designs, as well as getting a ton of help from some of the best people in the twin cities. We put in many hours of filming and when it was all said and done I was happy with the work we put into the video. Way back in late October is where Derek, Stephanie, and I had finished all our hard work for the music video. It went into another phase of production in which, luckily no one had any expertise and couldn’t help.
Video editing from what I can tell is no easy task. Dan Rollins of LiveWire Films shared how they had hours upon hours of footage to go through and pick the best ones for our 5 minute song. I did not envy the task at hand and was glad I was for the most part done with working on the video.
We now fast forward to late January and I see an email that says rough draft of music video. I sit up straighter in my chair getting excited to see what Dan and Kita Rollins created. What I was about to witness far exceeded any expectations I could have ever dreamed of. I couldn’t believe that what I was watching was our band. It was surreal to see something so visually amazing being done with the music we’ve created. It captured perfectly what I was hoping to get out of this video.
You may be wondering, “When do I get to see this video?” The answer is Friday February 11th, 2011. We will post this on our youtube page. Similarly, we will also have for purchase the track that the music video was used for. We hope you partake in viewing and listening to the music. More is on the way and will soon will be ready for anything.
