Right around the time I am about to finish the "Talamak" music video, I am editing on a poor over-used little 13" Macbook and am abusing the hell out of it. It crashed about 7 times and froze more than 50. Fearing it's near demise, I finish Talamak before the straw finally crippled the lil drive's back. Which causes me to believe I had lost all of the raw footage from my shoots with Chaz.
But after a sleepless night, the drive miraculously comes to in the morning, disheveling everything on there into a hundred different randomly numbered files on one folder entitled "lost + found."
Needless to say I lost a lot of cool stuff that I'll never have back that night. Pour one out for all lost clips.
Earlier this year I was perusing through that 'ole hard drive again out of curiosity and I looked in a folder entitled "87109." The footage found on that folder, combined with my brother Forest's photos (which he happened to take a lot of that day) on a Toro y Moi photo shoot with Andy Woodward + Brandon Wilner. All that + quirky outtakes from the one and only / first and last "Beat Lab" episode with Kid Trails aka Patrick Jeffords, I cut together a little video for the fun of it + excitement around his second record release. Which happens to kick major ass.
Hope you enjoy. Go buy his new album.
To quote Devin the Dude, "on wax, cd, or whatever."
