given that our friends in CHARMING DISASTER will be returning to blessed shores of STATEN ISLAND next month for a secret-ish gig (check HERE for details), it seemed a good time to look back at the shoot we collaborated with them on for their "BLACKSNAKE" video (embedded below) at the KREISCHER MANSION on a bitterly frigid night last winter.
if my memory serves me correct, we shot from sunset to sunrise in that dilapidated old 19th century victorian structure that, not surprisingly, did not have central heating. it was intense.
they were familiar with the space as we had shot them a few months before as part of our KREISCHER MANSION SESSIONS live performance video series (embedded below) and had a written a script that took visual advantage of various rooms, corridors and foyers throughout. i've learned that it is always enjoyable to work with people who know what they want, as it narrows the gig to executing a common vision. this was an exhausting but fun shoot and we were excited about the final project they edited together. special thanks to ELIA, JEFF & JOSH.
come see them play next month and check out their latest single "Longest Night of the Year."
