“First Train” by Mayday Parade

Ok so I think I’m all caught up posting all the music videos I’ve worked on recently, so this is nice.

I loved this video because it’s cute and wholesome, and it’s got a great anti-bullying message, which I’m always a big supporter of. This is also one of the rare non-horror shorts of done, so as I bonus I get to actually show my daughter what I do for a living. She’s eight now, and recently she’s been kinda side-eyeing me because I keep telling her about all these cool things I’ve been doing but she’s never allowed to see any of it. For a second there she was probably starting to think I was doing something terrible, like getting into politics.

Enjoy!

Fun fact: LLamas tried to eat our craft services the first day. We got attacked by bees at the end of the last day. We still conquered nature, big and small.

Catching up on the big stack of neat stuff on my desk, here’s a post to a music video we worked on that was just released. Lots of great looking people in this, and the sound stage was at Silver Scream FX Labs, which if you ever manage to find yourself there, be prepared because not only is it am amazing special effects workshop, but it is without a doubt one of the best museums dedicated to horror I’ve ever seen in my life.

Anyways, enjoy the video, I gotta get back to updating my portfolio and my production design website. Have you seen it recently? There’s a lot going on there. I’m behind by like two videos and a feature film. I’m slaving over a hot keyboard right now.

Fun fact: I’ve got a “blink and you miss it” cameo in this one. Can you find me? Take a screen cap and send it my way and I’ll ship you a one-of-a-kind prop from one of the sets I’ve worked on this year.

Speaking of small apps reminding me of stuff I’ve done and also music videos with horror themes, here’s one I was the production designer for a mere five years after that last one I posted about here.

As a matter of fact, I even talked about it in my latest email, and you’d know all about the differences and things in common between both productions if you’re subscribed to it

Oh, and here’s a fun fact: This video came out just as everyone was on their way to raid Area 51. Anyone remember how that went down, or did we all get hit with that memory flashy thing from Men in Black?

Oh hey and if you want to see more pics of this set, visit my production design website at www.BadSeedFX.com.

My favourite little app for reminding me of all the cool and weird stuff I’ve done on the internet and in my life over the years just sent me an email and reminded my about this video from six years ago. I was but a wee baby, and this was my first time working on a music video set. The results are… well, it’s a music video, but it was still a lot of fun to do. I got to do my own zombie makeup and then I got headbutted by a really nice guy, so I had that going for me.

It’s pretty cool being able to look back on how I’ve evolved as both a makeup artist and a barely recognizable BG artist music videos. The difference being is now I’m in good company, so I went from videos to a few views a year to a few hundred thousand views a week.

If I could remake this video with what I know how about production…
