Sorne "Ego Altar" Directed by: Lobo Sucio
SORNE sings from the collective perspectives of five siblings and their desire to be loved unconditionally by their late father. The characters are part of the narrative, House of Stone, a story that is told through the visual art, writing, and sonic soundscapes of SORNE. 

With the invaluable help of Greenheart Creative, we were able to blend creative lighting, narrative through dance, and acting by SORNE into a special video that is a strong pillar in the SORNE universe. 

Wolf Triangle "Frog Legs" Directed by: Allie Lane
A visual discovery of otherworldly ritual and occult practices, Wolf Triangle and Allie Lane present "Frog Legs".

Riverboat Gamblers "Heart Conditions" Directed by: Justin Wilson 
This is the sequel & prequel to Blue Ghosts. Stuck in an infinite loop, Mike and the boys repeatedly scatter amongst a ghost town looking for reprieve.  

Adam Carmichael "Self Destruction" Directed by: Adam Carmichael, Bad JohnPaul
The concept for "Self Destruction" began at the very heart of the song. Adam wrote the song to represent the need in human nature to destroy something when it is good or to self destruct, whether it be in life or relationships. 

With that in mind, Adam Carmichael and Bad JohnPaul wrote out the concept and story board for the video. They created an idealized and glamorous version of a musician's life, creating almost a characture of Adam's own life. They incorporated all aspects that could be considered destructive. Some plot points were fictitious and some were autobiographical to Adam's life. One interesting detail was the homage to the Robert Palmer video "Addicted to Love" which ties the video together.

The cast was comprised of friends, artists, actors, and musicians that were all Austin locals. Tina Rodriguez who is the sister or Director Robert Rodriguez, and who's resume includes films like "Inglorious Bastards" and "Death Proof" played a staring role. Every actor completely immersed themselves in the roles. At times Adam would take real punches from Lead actress Rita Buhler. One interesting fact is that the actress Jessica who played the role of the photographer, later turned out to be a notorious ex federal con-artist who was wanted all over the country. 

The production took place over two weeks with little to no budget. All locations, sets, styling, makeup, and hair were generously donated to the production by friends and fellow artists. The filming would take place all day and long into the night. There was an ominous cloud lingering over the production with all of the negative emotions having to be portrayed.

All of the post production was completed by Adam Carmichael, from the mixing to the editing of the film.

This film is a piece of our hearts and was created with blood, sweat, tears, and the passion of a family coming together to create something larger than themselves. 

Toadies "Rattler's Revival" Directed by: Justin Wilson
The Toadies are the house band for this twisted tent revival that goes from hallucinogenic to completely awry. 50 extras with one day to build and one day to shoot. The Making Of Video: https://vimeo.com/67666518

The Polyphonic Spree "Hold Yourself Up" Directed by: Justin Wilson
There are worst fates than the one offered in The Polyphonic Spree's new video for the song "Hold Yourself Up." A man dies and wakes to find himself in another realm where beautiful women, beaming with joy, dance and sing, uninhibited, alongside their charismatic leader Tim DeLaughter. By the end of the short story that unfolds, the dead man is either brought back to life, where the world is relatively dull, or he emerges on the other side of the afterlife only to find death isn't the celebration he thought it was.Either way, watch and you'll want to join the band. The video was directed by Justin Wilson. "Hold Yourself Up" appears on the Polyphonic Spree album Yes It's True. - Robert Hilton, NPR

Night Drive "After Dark" Produced by Lobo Sucio
This third collaboration between Lobo Sucio and Night Drive was the first in narrative format. Members of both groups met and realized a world only populated by women was where their interests and the mood of the song fell in line.

From a gorgeous modern house in Barton Hills, to the steps of the newly-built, downtown courthouse, the production team braved winter nights full of fast company moves, missing equipment accessories, motorcycle stunts, and late-night pizza.

Tele Novella "Trouble in Paradise" Directed by: Tina Rivera
Trouble in Paradise 'Tele Novella'

Magna Carda "Game Like Jimmy" Directed by Megan Cardwell
The director found inspiration within lyrics of the song Game Like Jimmy that called upon the deranged cult leader Jim Jones and created a new age Jonestown that would be called Cardatown. The vocalist Megz and the beatmeister Dougie lead the cult and captivate their followers with the music of their band Magna Carda. As the cult spreads, Cardatown begins to attract international attention causing an agent to investigate and soon the wronged members come out of hiding, leading to a fatal end for everyone.
