Oxygen - Journey of an Artist

Wooo!  This project is finally seeing the light of day.

Janey had wanted a little "mini-doc" of her trip to Orange Studios to re-record some vocals for an updated version of one of her collaborative songs.  I was starting to get into video at the time and thought it would be a good project to start out with.

Neither of us really had a clear idea of what the scope of the video was beyond the time she would be in the studio recording, so we recorded a good narrative about the stuff she has been through, and then a good days worth of video to cut together.  A storyboard probably would have been helpful, but we were just making it up as we went.  For off the cuff, we were both very happy with how it turned out.

A big thanks to Jason @ The Orange Lounge studio for letting me in there while he was working with Janey, and letting me stick my camera wherever I wanted.  I had no idea so many high profile artists had been through there until I started seeing all the things on the walls.

Due to some legal issues, the release of this had to wait until now because Janey was under some sort of contractual obligations that needs to be sorted out.  But finally, after so many months of just sitting on this, waiting for the day to come, its finally here!  Considering it was my first attempt at video, Im very happy with it (technical limitations of the camera aside).  Some of the things I learned while doing this video I was able to apply and correct to the next project, which was Isabell and Stephen's engagement video.

Im enjoying doing video, and while its alot more work than photography, I hope to keep doing it and helping people bring some great stories to a wider audience.
