I made this video in the fall for my oft-mentioned friend Brent Jordan for the Babelgum Music Video contest. We made it to the semi-finals but no further, but I am just remembering that this video isn’t available anywhere else on the web besides Babelgum.com.
Now, however, you are welcome to check it out here. I’m definitely proud of this. I think it’s a good first video–first video for me as a filmmaker, and first video for Brent as a musician. It focuses primarily on him, and there is no real narrative to the video to distract from the song. It’s nothing ground-breaking but I think it’s an assortment of beautiful images set to a great song. We’re planning on collaborating again soon, and next time around I really want to push the envelope. But for now, I am quite happy with what we got here. So I give you the video for “John Song” off the new Brent Jordan album (which you can buy here) “Blue Shout Blind.”
