Captured Saintseneca at O’leavers about a week ago. I was fascinated with songwriter’s approach to songs. For Zac it wasn’t about creating the song, just about choosing where to dig and find it. Check out the full story here: http://hearnebraska.org/content/last-saintseneca-ingrained-video
New music video from Mitch Gettman directed and edited by yours truly. Check it out here: http://hearnebraska.org/content/stay-me-gettman-music-video
If you’re like me, you might have heard of Mitch before. At 15, Mitch started posting videos on his youtube account of acoustic versions of some of his influences like Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and U2. With view counts in the hundreds of thousands, he found an audience online. His reception helped to form a band here in town and he has been playing for almost two years now. With only the acoustic songs I had seen online, I was blown away with the mature and rocking sound of his new album. Gettman has written a solid album of mad bittersweet characters yearning after love, life, and happiness. In working on this video, we mused on the album title, a Jack Kerouac quote. We wanted to project what one does when errant love runs off. We both agreed that fireworks were a centerpiece image, exploring wonder and danger, energy and contemplation. Take a moment and let the sweet release of this video set in while fireworks make your heart grow fonder.
