More Photos from Elbo Room - Chicago 2012



Continuing to sort through all the photos from the past year, now that we're transitioning from the Powder Kegs promotion and into the next batch of recordings.  Dug up a few more cool shots taken from our show at Elbo Room below. (I posted some others taken by Kennedy from this same show in an earlier blog. This set here today was taken by our man Rob Gaczol).

The Bridge Video - Behind The Scenes (Part 3)

(photo by Jackie Sestak)
The video shoot for my most recent video "The Bridge" took three separate days.  I already showed some images from the first day (on a remote farm with explosives) and also from day two (at a factory with devils and angels).

Day three was shot on the shores of the Chicago River with the band, in the weeds.  It was photo-documented by both Rob Gaczol and director Jackie Sestak.

Here is the final video by the way if you want to watch.

And here are a handful of photos I like from the final day of filming "The Bridge":

The Bridge Video - Behind The Scenes (Part 2)

The video shoot for my most recent video "The Bridge" took three separate days.  I already showed some images from the first day.

On Days 2 and 3 we were joined by Rob Gaczol and his camera at the factory where we rehearse, so I have some much better still shots from that day.

(Here is the final video by the way if you want to see how it all turned out.)

Any rate, below are some of my favorite shots documented by Rob Gaczol  on day 2. (Don't forget to check out Rob's photo journal here.  He has so many cool shots of Chicago.)




Above:  We were joined in the video by local artist Emilie Bouvet Boisclair.  She played "the Angel."




Above:  As usual, Sean the Devil played the devil.  You can read about Sean and what his "devil" role means to me and the project here.  He's in all the videos as you know by now.




Above:  Directors Jess Turcios and Jackie Sestak give Emilie direction.



Above:  Jackie filming to iPad.



Above: With the Angel... and Devil.



Above: Ridiculously angelic.



Above: Angels got my back.



Above:  Go to the light and stay out of the corners!



Above:  Some folks you might meet crossing the bridge.



Above:  About to cross the bridge.



Above:   You guessed it - crossing the bridge.
