I'm in Binghamton, NY working on a Music Video. Much like cigarettes, this makes the ____th time I've sworn I was done with them...and the ____th time I'm back at it. I'm not going to go into a great deal of detail, but working on Music Videos can truly suck -- used to almost always suck. And they suck less often now for much the same reason that many of you might complain about watching Music Videos, (i.e. they've become too slick).
At some point, while I was officially retired from them, they became more of a professional endeavor. I'm not going to get into a discussion of the worthiness of Music Videos...or a discussion of whether or not they might be better or worse than they were in the early days when I worked on my first. (BTW, the shot of the snare drum covered in milk, about 2:45 in, was the great "concept" for that entire video.)
But the point of all this is that I'm working for a really enjoyable and talented Director. Tomorrow promises to be fairly entertaining.
Here's an example of some of the class and imagination he brings to a project:

And here's an example of the class and imagination he brought to another project*

*This was an internet project for Aids Awareness in France...and it got millions of hits and ended up actually airing on French TV.
