We successfully executed the Moonlight Silhouettes II photoshoot last weekend building and testing the set on a 95+ degree Friday and doing the shoot on Sunday. A cast and crew of 12 busted their butts for this project and I was humbled by everyone’s efforts and dedication to the vision. Tonight the aerialists, Mallory & Stephanie, reviewed and edited the photos with me and I think we have ourselves an art show! The opening is Saturday, August 27th at IX Art Park. There will be bands, beer and food trucks. Mark your calendars!
In the meantime, here’s a behind the scenes peek at our set under construction:
The third installment in our “The _______ and the Sword” collaboration with the beautiful Opal Lechmanski finds her fending off a pack of wild dogs. You know what comes next. Shot in the performance space at IX Art Park with Brian Wimer.
My new Wussy video shot with Brian Wimer debuted on Friday via the A.V. Club and it was quickly picked up by Paste Magazine as well. The video was shot in December in Croaker, Virginia near Williamsburg. Smithsonian Magazine recently ran an interesting feature article on the secret location. Here is our “cast and crew” photo and the video follows below:
“Under the moonlight, this serious moonlight.”
My new Moonlight Silhouettes photo series debuts at IX Art Park with an opening on August 27, 2016. National touring rock band on the outdoor stage afterward. Stay tuned. It will be a massive night.
I shot this video with Steve Barone using his old Super 8mm movie camera. It features clips of the band’s reunion show at the D4th of July celebration outside of the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis on July 4, 2015 as well as the only practice session for the show the day before. As Steve stated, “Lifter Puller does not advocate using Super 8 for anything because it is expensive as fuck to get it processed. Use Instagram.”
I directed and edited this video with Brian Wimer. It is the title track from the new Sally Rose Band album “Gotta Be Gold” and we dusted an entire room with gold foil, glitter and confetti and sprinkled in some go-go dancers.
I did a quick little video shoot yesterday with Koda of Chamomile & Whiskey. It is a melancholy Christmas song his late father wrote and you can see the piece here :: “First Christmas Without You”.
