The final chapter in the “Views from Rock Falcon” a 10-piece series documenting the recording to the Hold Steady’s sixth album “Teeth Dreams” has been uploaded. Some serious nature stuff at the end of this one. Good night Franklin TN and your enormous spiders.
The “Moonlight Silhouettes” series is an official Community Exhibit in the international LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph this week in downtown Charlottesville. The exhibit is up through Sunday night, June 15th at Champion Brewing Company and it is open for public viewing during their daily tap room hours. More information on the entire festival can be found here :: LOOK3.
File under better late than never – the remaining videos from my “Views from Rock Falcon” series documenting the recording of The Hold Steady’s sixth LP “Teeth Dreams” have been resurrected from some record company vault in Manhattan or somewhere. Here is the first new one to be posted and it is the band describing the album amongst some “behind the scenes” footage I shot in Nashville TN.
20 of my “behind the scenes” photos from the “Teeth Dreams” recording sessions can be found by following :: this link :: – Shot in August and October 2013 at Rock Falcon Studios in Franklin TN (just south of Nashville).
The latest in the “Views from Rock Falcon” video series I shot and edited for The Hold Steady is at the bottom of this article :: The Guardian UK. Besides the trailer (post from January linked below), this was my favorite piece to put together as it utilized a lot of my old photographs of the band as well as some never-seen-before ones by Craig Finn.
I shot and edited this footage in Nashville in August and October during the recording sessions for the new Hold Steady album. More videos including interviews with the band and the producer will also be released soon.
The entire “Slumber Party Massacre” series can now be seen online by clicking here for the link to the slideshow. Buzz me if you are interested in buying the book or the VHS box of 4″ x 6″ prints. Also, we are booking the exhibit into galleries and film festivals for 2013 and 2014 – contact me if you are interested in hosting this exhibit.
