Bloody Amateur, (the new solo project from NYC guitarist/songwriter Andy Comer).
‘Shed Some Weight’ is the first video to be released for his debut LP (released March 5, 2013 via Teen-Beat).
The video is a collaboration between Andy Comer and long-time friend, award-winning
filmmaker Daniel Fickle. The two began working together in 2008 while Andy was
Multimedia Editor at GQ, and have worked together on numerous commercial and
creative projects in the years since. Daniel's previous work has taken home honors from
SXSW, was featured on FKR.TV, and he was recently awarded a Webby Honoree title for
his music video 'A House, A Home'.
The video is a coming-of-age story, staged entirely on a moving railway car, and inspired
by events from Andy’s teen years. Daniel wanted to capture the frenetic energy and
constant change experienced by teenagers coming into adulthood and “shedding weight”,
literally and figuratively. We see a progression of confidence, built through learning that
first chord on the guitar, knowing how to pair your socks to your trousers and,
naturally, getting that first kiss.The dramatic visuals and bold performance by Eleven
Becenti make this a first class debut for Bloody Amateur.
