I hope everyone has been enjoying the videos so far! I’ve been trying to post 1 or 2 videos a month. I filmed (with the help of my wife Kristen sometimes) Justin Sane of Anti-Flag, The Jim Ivins Band, Brad Mackeson and the hilarious The Beards lately. I’ve been trying to film a lot more but things have been canceled last minute in the last month. Those things happen when a) you’re trying to film musicians before their hectic shows b) it’s NYC so anything can happen like traffic and c) just scheduling things can be rough and can’t find time to do it. Weather has something to do with as well.
I probably shouldn’t post who I’m going to film because things might not happen and might get people disappointed. Lately when I saw I’m going to film someone, it falls through. I’m projected to film at least two bands this month, and even more in July. We’ll see if they actually happen or not. I hope!
If you haven’t been paying attention to local New York news, the city is trying to put a stop to street musicians. Anyone performing is considered a vendor, at least that’s my understanding of it and they have to play in a certain spot or be subject to a fine. I haven’t run into this just yet but I’m hoping its not a problem or might have to get creative with filming. I really don’t want to just film inside, backstage at a venue if I don’t have to. That will become really stale after awhile. In the winter that’s an option but now that’s it summer, I want to film outside! We’ll see how that goes.
Like always, if you want to help out in any way or have a band/musician in mind, please let me know at email@example.com. I could use all the help I can get!
