" SAY YOU WILL "
We were honored to be asked to do another video for Billy. His request was to create strong visuals of him walking down the streets of a New England harbor city.
We decided our home port of New London, Connecticut was the perfect backdrop and with the blessings of some great friends we were abe to use the Garde Theater to retreat from the nine degree winter air.
" WRECKING BALL "
The boys from the band came to us and said...
“We want to do a video that will show how alcohol can destroy your soul.” So we looked for a place that could help us elaborate that idea and found the perfect location
at the old cotton mill in Baltic, Connecticut.
The band “lifted” themselves above and beyond
to pull off a fantastic video.
“ SOGNO DI DORETTA “
Being an accomplished “POP ERA” singer at thirteen, Chrissy’s voice mesmerized us all. After hearing her rendition of Puccini’s masterpiece, we pictured her as a modern day princess trapped within her mansion walls.
To find the right location we turned to the Harkness Estate in New London, Connecticut. Despite the harsh wind of a cold November day, when leaves where literally dropping off the trees as we shot, the resulting magic was due to the fact that Chrissy filmed barefoot!
" HEY LITTLE SUZIE "
The song told the story.
Using America’s favorite past time, the symbolic lucky 7,
and our national colors as a backdrop, the video illustrates the fact that It’s not important if you win or loose..
What's important is that you have fun playing the game!”
We filmed this at Cimalore field on a hot July day and the town of Westerly couldn’t have been more accommodating. Special thanks to the Board of Westerly Parks and Rec, The Westerly High School Athletic Department, the Misquamicut Fire Department, our dedicated softball players and all the people in the bleachers that “cooled off” with the rain.
“ EVERYTHING & MORE ”
Billy won his first Grammy at the age of eight. Since his voice, stature, and personality had developed into that of a young man, it was important to show him in a new light. The casting call opened the doors to over five hundred lovely young ladies, but when Christine walked in, we knew we had found the girl that was everything and more.
We shot for two days at a beautiful home on the shores of Weekapaug, Wilcox Park, Perks and Corks Cafe, and on the steps of the Library in downtown Westerly, Rhode Island.
“ ALONE ”
Josh and Gus are two cousins that have dreamed the American dream of forming a band and taking it on the road.
Only difference is they started living their dream
at the age of fourteen.
We shot this video at a NY Club called “The Lions Den”.
Josh and Gus both ripped up that place like it was no ones business. Funny thing was that neither of them
were old enough to have a beer.
“ SUPERHERO ”
Naree asked us to create a music video that reflected her fine taste for Japanese Anime and amplified her magnificent talent with not only a guitar, but a Samurai sword. We said easy enough lets turn you into a superhero!
The entire video was filmed at Sonalysts Studios
in Waterford, Connecticut.
“ YOU HAVE A WAY ”
“You Have a Way” was a song all about lost love, and since Anthony was an elemental artist, we used metaphors of nature and the four elements to accent his character.
The exteriors were filmed at Weekapaug and at the Atlantic Beach Park Carousel in Misquamicut, RI. The interiors were filmed at Sonalysts Studios in Waterford, CT.
“ HOY HOY HOY ”
Caveau de la Huchette is a world famous jazz cellar in the Latin Quarter where Parisians go to listen to the best of the best. When legendary blues artist Al Copley asked us to create this video, he wanted real people... real dancing.
So I asked where we could find a good troupe of swing dancers in Paris to compliment his swinging sizzle.
Al said to me, when I hit the keys... just roll”
...and the rest was magic.
“ SOMEONE TO LOVE ”
Al's request was that we film amid the bunkers on coasts of France and across the World War II Normandy American Cemetery & Memorial. He told me his inspiration for the video came from the love France had for the American troops and the ultimate sacrifce they gave to rid the planet of Nazi evil. The setting was fantastic and Al performed like the true legend his is, even when the tide rose over his sweet shoes.
