We are very grateful to be hosted by Mr. Smalls as the venue for our music video. They were courteous and kind, allowing us to use their awesome venue to help us look awesome. Notable delightful people include Shaunden Smith, Liz Berlin, and Mike Speranzo, who made filming there into an absolute dream.
Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention some other amazing artists who contributed their time and talents toward our cause- Douggie Duerring dropped everything at a moment’s notice to come over and run light board, dazzling us with his amazing display of light and design. Also, his amazing beard. Doug is a local photographer, and you can see his professional website here.
Jess Bala transformed me (Liz) with her skilled makeup talents, from a frazzled mess into an artistic, clockwork design of lashes, gears and cogs. I, personally, am very grateful, because not only did she make me look better than I could have ever done on my own, but her soothing presence and confidence calmed me to the point where I could begin to feel like a human being again.
And, of course, we would like to acknowledge our faithful videographers, Edwin Huang, and Scott Lewis, for their vigilance, flexibility, improvisation, creativity, and inspiration on this shoot, and all of the others. They are great. They just are.
