Compilation of Leo Herrera's Psychedelic Video Work, 2004-09
Music by Johnny Dynell, "Jam Hot" Tensnake Remix, (available on iTunes)
HomoChic is proud to present the most memorable psychedelic video clips from Leo Herrera's 04-09 film portfolio. His psychedelic work has been a staple of San Francisco entertainment culture for over 5 years. These clips have been created for concerts, nightlife events, sex parties, music videos, radical faerie gatherings and Burning Man events.
Influenced by San Francisco's rich history of light shows in the 60's, these pieces use modern compositing to fuse re appropriated and original footage with organic techniques and practical effects. The effects created for these videos have been developed using deceptively simple techniques: purposely creating glitches in the software for jerky frame rates, boiling water in an aquarium and filling it with egg whites, shooting macro photography of Amyl Nitrate bottles or using optical effects through plastics and mirrors.
As Leo Herrera and HomoChic expand to New York City, it's only fitting that the soundtrack be provided by NYC club icon & legend DJ Johnny Dynell, who has graciously provided his song "Jam Hot", remixed by the master Tensnake.
