Storage 24 Music Video Shoot (part 2 of 2) (6.7.09)

Posted in 2009, Behind The Scenes, black and white, Color, Digital, One to One Studios, Photo Post, rock and roll, Storage 24 by William Patrick Butler on June 17, 2009

picking up right where we left off with part one, the Storage 24 music video shoot for their single “No Surrender” continues!

we pick back up as the crew gets ready to film Courtney’s scene.

i just had to leave this one in color.  i love all the contrast of Clay’s brown shirt, Sam’s orange shirt, Daniel’s black shirt, and Courtney’s pink dress against the back drop of that blue building.

yep.  we still have Talon running.

remember, it’s still 90+ degrees out there!

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (136 of 263)

getting set up for take two.

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (137 of 263)

and take two goes off without a hitch.

oh, and the “storyline” of this scene is, Talon is running down the street, bumps into Courtney who asks if he’s ok, he starts freaking out and takes off running again.

and that was that.

me and Clay weren’t the only ones doing some behind the scenes shooting.

Tom Wright from StateStreetPosts.com was also there filming scenes for his website and for his wife’s “Bunny’s Fashion Report” (in which i was interviewed showing off my “hip” street fashion.  and by hip i mean my blue jeans and t-shirt) 😉

if you wanna check out the video of his shoot, just click here 🙂

while Tom was filming, the rest of us were pretty much just waiting around, trying to beat the heat, while the next scene was being set-up.

Courtney had to leave shortly after i got this shot, so i’m glad i got it.

the next set-up we’re waiting on is the second part of the car scene. (yeah, the one that was giving us so much trouble before)

i always like shooting other photographers, while they’re shooting.  always like seeing how they approach stuff.

and this was the point that we all started heading for the building to get ready for the last scene of the day on Farish St.

the big band scene!

…and as if in a dream, like a moth to the flame, he has to discover the source.

so through the door he walks.

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (201 of 263)

the band doesn’t see him…

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (202 of 263)

and what camera 3 saw of the exit.

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (206 of 263)

that pretty much wrapped up Farish St.

after that it was break time in front of the only fan on the set and and killing time, making sure we had all the shots we needed before we started breaking everything down.

April and Baby Phred joking around.

April was our angel (who would later transform into a demon) for this part of the shoot.

(trust me, it’ll all make sense when you see the video) 🙂

by this point, we were having to kinda speed up because we kept blowing fuses and losing power.

so we jury rigged and managed to keep power flowing by running extension cords to other parts of One to One and kept it going. LoL

NO SURRENDER! 😉

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (247 of 263)

another shot i really like

Talon, as he finally sees what’s on the other side of the light.

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (248 of 263)

and the loving embrace.

this is pretty much how the video ends.

but before we get to that point!

YEAH!! GET ‘EM!!! GET ‘EM!!

GO AFTER HIM!! YEAH!! REALLY GET AFTER HIM!!!

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (256 of 263)

YEAH!!! YEAH!!!

April: but what if i tear his shirt…?

TEAR HIS SHIRT!!! YEAH!!!  GO FOR IT!!!

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (257 of 263)

YEAH!!! TEAR HIS SHIRT!!! THAT’S IT!!!

LoL!

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (258 of 263)

and that’s that.

Storage 24's music video shoot (No Surrender!) (6.7.09) (259 of 263)

Initial filming of Storage 24’s “No Surrender” music video is done!

it was a long, hot, humid day and a blown fuse, jury rigged trying to keep the power on night, but we were all in it together and that made it great!

can’t wait to see the video guys!!
