Someday, Somebody is Gonna Notice…

 

…and somebody did.  In 2013, the guys over at The Nashville Scene put together a list of the top 26 local music videos and we made the cut. So why are we telling you about this now? Two words:

Mannequin Challenge.

Granted, we didn’t know about Black Beatles then, so we did you one better and created a video with Heidi Feek showcasing her song Someday, Somebody.

Her partnership with Director/D.P. Gabe McCauley, along with Art Director Casey Pierce birthed a dark little story with noir written all over it.

The video joins a list with such the likes of actor/director Shia LaBeouf.

Femme Fatale and local Artist Caitlin Rose  and heart throb Sam Farkas (of Space Capone) both did a “killer” job portraying lovers caught in a love triangle.

Here’s what the Scene had to say:

“Someday Somebody” video is, according to Goose, “a beautifully shot clip, complete with spooky living-photograph effects” that is “a perfect complement” to the smoldering track. Smolder on.

The video played at “Salute your Shorts” a Nashville local celebration of short films and music videos.

Check this little diddy out if you haven’t already, and listen to more of Heidi’s music here. She is an incredible artist, and legit friend with a big heart. We look forward to more collaborations in the future.

 

And by the way…..
Heidi won the Mannequin Challenge before the Mannequin Challenge was cool.

Victoria Jackson: Does She Talk That Way in Real Life?

Yes, she does.

When you hear “Victoria Jackson,” your first thought may be “SNL” or “The Lady That Does the Handstands”. Those are both true, but I’m fortunate to know the lady behind the silver screen. When I think of Victoria Jackson, I think of a woman who really is funny, genuinely kind and she loves my kids.

October is breast cancer awareness month, and we’re sharing this video now not only to honor Victoria, but to share the same message her husband Paul feels about her:

She is so strong and so beautiful.

Victoria, a blonde, lost her hair after cancer treatments. But it didn’t grow back the color she expected.

“Gray,” she lamented to her husband. “My hair is gray.”

He told her, “It’s not gray, you have lavender hair.”

We shot this video beside my front porch, and Victoria was excited about singing while the cows roamed in the background. Our single camera shoot turned into her making up songs on the spot, singing to my kids as they played around her.

“Scout likes lions and lions like Scout….”

My daughter is in love with lions. When Victoria found this out (it didn’t take long), she brought her lion carpet she had purchased at a thrift shop somewhere outside of L.A. years ago, featuring THE WHOLE GIGANTIC LION HEAD to my house so Scout could see a REAL lion.

(The fact that the lion was now an ornate rug did not bother Scout.  Scout named it “Carpet Lion”).

Victoria took pictures of Scout meeting Carpet Lion on her phone, and later surprised us with them blown up on a canvas as a gift. That’s the kind of person she is.

A sweet, quirky woman with lavender hair.

Horses, Arabia, and the 1800s.

While we are about to introduce you to a film in the early stages of funding & pre-production, we will not be introducing you to this one, though I expect we just did…
The Equestrienne is a story of a woman in the late 1860s who attempts to preserve an ancient Arabian horse breed, despite her scandalous behavior. For a little tease of what’s to come, here is the pre-production trailer we recently produced.
