New video is up! This time it´s Alex Poe from Portland, Oregon who gets the 5-minutes-of-fame. As some of you might know, I went to Denmark to guest-teach the Photo-VJ class at Engelsholm Højskole this spring. It was a very interesting stay, during which I met Alex during a spontaneous wrestling match. After events, which I don´t care to list up here, Alex decided to cancel his stay at the school and so I followed him to Copenhagen to catch his plane. While bored and waiting for departure, we decided to shoot a music video to one of his tracks.
To be honest, it´s my first real music video. Most of the shots are taken from when we were hanging out, so its also a documentation of our friendship. For me it was also a practice in lip-syncing, exposure grading and how to create good workflows in Final Cut. Overall I rate it a success; Alex got his video, and I got to try something new.
What I like best about Alex´s music, is that he is not your typical rapper. He does not look like one, and he does not sound like one. Combine that with a good flow, a creative mind and a lady-killer attitude and you got Alex in a nutshell; something different. He gave me a Justin Bieber T-shirt if I came to visit him in Portland; so tickets are booked and the T-shirt is mine.
