From the 38th Floor

Last thursday was a night of fortuitous accidents. While scouting music video locations with StraightValue, a series of one-time opportunties lead us to an outside balcony on the 38th floor of the Cathedral of Learning. While, unfortunately too dark to shoot a scene for the video, I seized the moment to take some time-lapse footage and put together a short video. The view from there is incredible.

A Perfect Moment with Lindsay Ferguson

Lindsay Ferguson came through Zürich and after her show at the best cafe in Zürich we filmed two videos for the Presented by Cafe Henrici video series. The way the people in the street reacted to her and what happens at the beginning of part II made for a perfect, real life moment for me. Enjoy!

Octoberman in November

Octoberman returned to Zürich with with a full band. After their show at Cafe Henrici, lead-man Mark hit the streets by himself and performed his song "Eddie and Rita". I love the lens flares in this video:

Cafe Henrici is the best cafe in Zürich -- no contest. Karla and I discovered it several months ago and I have been hooked ever since. Not only is their coffee delicious and amazing, but the people who run it are super nice as well as passionate about coffee. They have recently began live music sessions in the evenings and when Will Sartain came to play on Dec 12, we made this video.
