Is there anything more satisfying than crossing something off a list? Honestly it doesn’t matter what kind of list, grocery, packing, honey do, but the top has to be crossing something off the ole bucket list. As some of you may know I wrote about how on my bucket list taking part in a music video was one of my goals, and how much I wanted to be in the music video Cray Button with Family Force 5. Well they reached their funding goal for the video to take place, and I was able to be apart of it. So on Sunday morning armed with directions to the warehouse where we were filming, loads of water/Gatorade, and a whole bundle of nerves I set off. I was fairly nervous because I didn’t exactly know what to expect and I wasn’t able to talk a friend into going with me, but about 15 minutes into signing in I made some friends, and the nerves went away thank goodness. The day consisted of waiting about mostly (like any film project does), dancing like a mad person, running, sweating, and oh ya more sweating! Who needs a sauna when you can party in a warehouse with no AC in the middle of a July Texas day? I think I did enough sweating and working out to last me a year, here it is Tuesday and I’m still sore.
We also did a bit of filming outside, for some crowd rafting. Let me tell you Solomon (lead vocals) is one brave man, I don’t know that I would ever hop onto a little inflatable boat a top of my fans and have them pass me back and forth. In case you are wondering no he didn’t fall…well on the ground that is.
Solomon crowd rafting!
That’s Isaac Deitz up there on the american flag drapped building. He was the videographer/director for this whole thing. My hats off to him!
The whole band of Family Force 5!
After all the filming had taken place as a thank you/wrap party the band held a concert, and let me tell you they were absolutely killin it! I have no idea how they put on such a great show considering how hard they had been working all day! But is was amazing!
His face paint did not last long, sweat will do that 😉
Just in case playing an incredible show wasn’t enough the boys stuck around to take pictures and sign things for the fans! So naturally I had to get some pics…sorry for the low quality but I was too scared to bring my Canon.
Me and Josh (bassist) poor guy was so tired but he was such a trooper!
Me and Jacob (drummer) this guy is such a goofball I love him!
Me and Derek (guitarist) This guy is always so polite and makes time for his fans gotta love that!
Nathan, Solomon, my lil sis, me, Jacob, Derek, and Josh after a long eventful day.
I had the best time ever and I can’t wait to see the video, they showed us a few clips of what it will look like and I know we are in for quite an incredible video! So if you ever have the opportunity to see Family Force 5 or if you’re lucky enough to be in one of their videos do so! You will have a blast. Oh and you can bet I will post Music Video once its finished and released! Happy Tuesday guys!
