Radkey: All Nighter

Taylor Wallace, burning the midnight oil.

We spent most of the night painting the backdrop of the circus tent.

A bad a photo, but you get the idea.

My basement is starting to fill with rockers and spare parts.

My backyard is half drop cloth, half construction site.

Frames for the "wonky tunnel"

Frame for one of the rolling hills

Taylor and Lydia measuring and cutting

A bit of the final power tool action before we shifted gears to painting for the night.

All in all, a very productive day.  Art Director Cory Hinesley and Carpenter Taylor Wallace were able to rough in several of our main set pieces with the help of UMKC Intern Stacey Branson and friend/wife of mine Lydia DeMonte.

I showed up after a days work elsewhere to help move stuff around and paint backdrops.  Others had great photos of the action--maybe I'll steal/share them if they ever make it up to Facebook.

Radkey Music Video: Under Construction

Today we finished all our rockers for the rocking platform we're creating for the latest Radkey music video, Feed My Brain.  We've got at least a dozen sets on the way with only five days left before principle production begins.

RADKEY: Prepro

Recently started preproduction on a new project with Chris Durr at Outpost Worldwide.  We're making a music video for the band Radkey and their newest single Feed My Brain.  The art direction will be based on Film Noir and German Expressionism with a special emphasis on The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.  So far I've collected many supplies for free over craigslist and started to track down volunteers.  Everything seems to be on track.  Production starts April 26th.
