A few of my favourites
Working on the BTV series for the Billy Talent boys since 2015 has been an honour and a privilege but also a massive learning experience. Travelling the world with my friends capturing shows and backstage adventures was something I have always done for them since the early days of band practices in the Dsa basement. When it came to touring I started off as a part-time videographer/T-Shirt vendor. My pal Miska Csepreghi and I have been off and on the road with them since 2002.
I dove head-on into this with little editing experience. They bought a really nice camera and laptop and let me run wild. Many ups and downs in regards to storage and technology but we were learning about it as we went. We’ve seen other bands do a web series but none of us had actually made one before this. Not a series. It was a series of firsts for me.
One of the first Afraid of Heights record related projects outside of filming the recording process was their Manifesto Album Trailer
Ended up working on promo pieces for outside other BT related projects like their Rush 2112 cover, Klipsch headphones, several guitar promos and countless radio bumpers. All in all, we squeezed out just over 40 videos.
Will be adding to this as time goes on. I literally have 10s of thousands of photos to sort through.
