Angus and Julia Stone "Big Jet Plane" Directed by CJ Vinson

We found out that Angus and Julia Stone would be in town for Austin City Limits so we cold called their manager and asked if we could have 2 hours of their time while they were in town to film a video with us. We weren't really expecting them to say yes, so when they did, we were now faced with the task of coming up with a concept that we could pull off (from band pick up to drop off) in under 2 hours. 

We came up with the idea of shooting the band on a rooftop on 6th street. A task that seemed much better on paper than in execution because we didn't know how to secure the location. We had a friend that worked in a co-working space on 6th street and there was a conference room in the office with access to the roof. Once we were on the roof we hopped from rooftop to rooftop with the band and all their equipment for almost an entire block to get to the roof we all decided had the best view. This led us to another issue, since we needed power for the bass rig but we were over 200 feet from the outlet in the office that we started out from. We managed to daisy chain numerous extension cords together and by the grace of god it reached the bass rig.

Through the entire experience Angus, Julia and everyone else on their team was incredible and totally down for the unusual adventure. It was one of those shoots where just about everything should have gone wrong, but everything worked out and we all left with some amazing footage and an incredible story. 

Cowboy and Indian "Troubled Tracks" (The Sessions) Directed by CJ Vinson

Shakey Graves "Tommorow" Directed by CJ Vinson & Aaron Brown

The video for "Tomorrow" was shot live at The Sessions Factory in Austin TX. Produced by Lauren Bucherie and CJ Vinson The Sessions Factory was a one of a kind music video set that lasted several days in a converted warehouse space that had been transformed to look like a 1960s Andy Warhol Factory party. The Factory was equipped with a wardrobe department run by Gypsy Sun Vintage, a portrait photography studio run by Holly Bronko, a full performance stage run by The WERD Company, an onsite recording engineer (Travis Kennedy) with mics and gear ready for any recording situation, and a fully equipped video production team led by Aaron Brown (Director of Photography). 

Over the course of several days, over 20 artists came through the Factory where CJ, Lauren and Aaron brainstormed music video concepts with the artists, then would immediately set up and record the videos live in front of an audience of Factory attendees. 

For "Tomorrow", Shakey Graves was first asked to play the song for the live recording (footage from the original recording can be seen near the end of the video). The audio was then played back for Shakey Graves over a speaker who acted out each of the three parts (vocals, guitar, and percussion). The footage was then seamlessly stitched together to create a "deconstructed" Shakey Graves performance.
