Last week The Hold Steady played a four night run of sold out shows at the Brooklyn Bowl in New York City and I was there to capture some of the highlights in this Flickr set. My personal highlight from the week may have been Patrick from Titus Andronicus and Emilyn Brodsky dueting on “Chillout Tent”. So much so, I made a small photo album of just that song.
RVA Magazine in Richmond debuted the new Shagwüf video I shot and directed. They interviewed me and Sally Rose about the Shagwüf debut album, our latest video starring Opal Lechmanski, and why demanding LGBTQ-friendly, all-inclusive shows is non-negotiable. Shagwüf will love you, baby. Shagwüf has love for all. Here is the video:
The PBS show “Hey Virginia!” did a feature on my “Moonlight Silhouettes II” exhibit with an interview and behind the scenes footage. Check it out by clicking this link to the PBS website.
The Creating Process.com followed my “Moonlight Silhouettes II” project from construction through the first opening of the exhibit and their photos and short video can be seen here :: thecreatingprocess.com/creators/rich. Thank you to Guillermo Ubilla for the nice piece and especially cool photographs of our crew at work back in July. The exhibit will also be shown in November and December with an opening event on Saturday, November 5th. Details coming soon.
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”.
The AcoustIX video series I produced over 10 weeks this Fall has wrapped up for the year and the playlist of all of the performances can be found on the WTJU YouTube channel. This series was produced in part by a grant from Levitt Pavilions. I encourage you to vote for the IX Art Park in Charlottesville to host another 10-week concert series in the Fall of 2016 by going to the Levitt AMP polling page for WTJU.
