In Production: Dusty Grant For You

New Project alert! Recently aka a month ago singer songwriter Dusty Grant contacted me about interest in me shooting the music video for his single “For You”. Initially I thought this must be a mistake because I have not shot a music video despite have a moderate desire to do so. I have been sprinkling music video styling in some of the shoots I have done with models but nothing serious enough to evoke interest. He said from my short film stuff and how I play with dark themes that he feels like I could be a good fit.

We set up a zoom meeting and really hashed things out and made a preliminary concept for the video. I could tell that Dusty was excited and was ready to put tire to pavement and get this thing going. For me (no pun intended) I wanted to put together a proper treatment and presentation. Sometimes words get lost and having something down on paper to say what the vision is and where do you wish to make changes or object to. A physical treatment helps make the world real as well as serves as reference material when you have so many moving pieces and parts.

New Production(s) in works

Now its time to make a full return to the blog world as we have a few great announcements on projects that will be in production very soon to go along with the “in-production diaries” from previous projects. Getting right to the point Wi-Fi at Rock Bottom Second Edition is near completion and is currently in dealings with a publisher to bring a full immersive audiobook experience as well. We are working with another production entity to bring a new web-series to Wichita called “FROM THE GROUND UP” it will focus on the music scene of Wichita, Kansas in an interview style conversation that answers the questions of starting unknown and building up to a fan base and all the struggle and highlight in-between. We are looking for partnerships with some of the local business leaders to be involved and grab advertising spots for product placements. Contact us for more info.

Lastly, the most exciting thing I want to talk about is the new short-ish film I am working on called “the Trunk”. This will be the biggest in-production piece for the rest of the year.  I have written and will both act and direct my first Narrative film. More details to come in the production diaries but its an ambitious idea for me to put on so many new hats at once but its a task I think will pay off as many of my more industry friends have told me how strong the script is and it will come down to delivering good performances and final product. I can not wait to get back into the swing of things but as well there will be levels to this because one thing I have faced with tackling for the first time is funding and supporting a crew to make sure I can put together the best product possible.  New things and we are ready to get to a very busy summer.
