A Music Video I Shot and Edited - "Lightning" by Bim Skala Bim

In March of 2018, I travelled to Asheville, NC to see one of my favorite bands, Bim Skala Bim. They're a ska band originally from Boston, who formed around 1983. Nowadays, the members are spread around the globe, but still come together to do shows. At the show, I met the lead signer, Dan Vitale, and later we connected online. I wanted to use one of their songs for a short video, so I asked Dan if it was okay. He said yes, and after seeing the video, he asked me if I'd be interested in doing some art for the band - maybe some album art, a poster, or even a video. This fall, Dan send me this song, and since the budget was low, I just shot things around my studio. I edited all together like I usually do for my short videos.

Here's the video, "Lightning" ---

Let me know what you think. And if you want to get more info on the band, you can go here.

Thanks for looking!
