BTS – “Arrows”

Here’s a glimpse behind the scenes of the Fences “Arrows” shoot. We were in a top secret location in South Seattle for most of the shoot.

The Big Payback

Romaro Franceswa is one tough kid.  He’s takin’ a crack at the big names in the rap game.  Scrappy, confident and very personable… he’s gonna make it.  Matt shot this video for local director Johan Liedgren with help from Producer Paul Breslin.  What a crazy weekend of shooting.  Now, we’re getting the props from a…

StraightEIGHT Films got the call from Ryan Lewis in early May of 2014 to work with the guys to create the video.  We hit the ground running in early June getting things ready for the shoot.  With eight days of shooting with lions, tigers, underwater work, wire work, tons of green screen, huge sets and…

Dave Matthews “ehhee”

This was a self-produced, self-released track that Dave Matthews did independently of the label. It was initially given away on iTunes. This was a fun project to shoot and a great team to work with here in Seattle. Working with Dave was a very collaborative endeavor. Director: Dave Matthews DP: Matthew J. Clark

Beads “Evil”

The open road beckons providing the opportunity to find old memories and make new ones. Things don’t seem to always be like we remember them, though. Is it progress or destruction or just the way it is? We shot this video over three days in Central and Western Washington, Santa Monica and just outside of…

TheMakers_thumb_00

The Makers “Matter of Degrees”

Full on rock ‘n roll from Seattle glam rockers, The Makers. We shot on Super35 and Super8, oh and some Super16 too. All the same stock, just different formats. They cut together surprisingly well to create a sense of evolution. Director: Matthew J. Clark DP: Doug Hostetter Design and Animation: Bobby Hougham/ The New Blank…

Space Cowgirl

Guns and a Cowgirl in the depths of outer space, all the fixings for something interesting.  We did extensive testing to truly understand the ballistics of galactic gunfire…ok, we didn’t, but how cool would that have been?
