In April of 2011 I was asked to shoot a music video for Mercury Record's band Parachute at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO. The bulk of the performance parts were shot during the band's sound check. I had four takes (with no control over the lighting) and then one take during their actual concert performance. This is my edit of the video. The only thing that changed for the "Official Music Video" on YouTube was the blurring of the Plain White T's "Wonder's of the Younger" backdrop and blurring of a few things in the black and white scenes. I hadn't put the video up on Vimeo before since I didn't have the official version with the blurring. It was done by someone else in California. But now that the video has been up for over a year and has over 390K views on YouTube,
I don't think anyone from Island/Def Jam/Mercury records is going to care. I guess we'll find out...
