Music Monday No. 3

Look at me still sticking to my new blog series! I’m so proud of me ūüėČ Well today’s musical¬†Monday¬†recommendation¬†is for a rather epic music video! As some of you may know, during the summer I was able to take part in a music video of Family Force 5’s through Kickstarter. The music video is Cray Button, and it was released a couple of weeks ago. Isaac Deitz was the videographer/director for this whole thing, and let me tell you he¬†absolutely¬†out did himself, the music is without a doubt one of best I have ever seen! So give it a watch/listen and prepare to have your mind blown ūüėČ

also I thought I might as well throw in the link to the behind the scenes footage. Nathan Mowery was the behind the scenes videographer, and I feel compelled to tell you all that the behind the scenes footage truly captures the awesomeness of the shoots, and I love it just as much as I love the actual music video!

If you ever have the opportunity to take part in a Family Force 5 music video do it! It could very well be one of the best decisions you ever make. You get to brag that you took part in something positively epic, and you will walk away with some amazing new friends, I know I did. I hope all of you enjoyed this post and that you all have a happy musical Monday!

Check One Off The Bucket List

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.

Party People

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!

The lightboxes!

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 ūüėČ

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!

Bucket List!

Hey guys so one of the things on my bucket list is to be in a music video! No I’m no singer, I¬†just want¬†to be somebody in the background you know? Well I may actually get to cross that off my list, but only if this really awesome band Family Force 5 gets enough funding to do this music video…And if you live near Dallas or can travel here you can also be a part of the video, if you pledge enough. Pretty amazing right? Well here’s the link to pledge they only have¬†8 days left to raise¬†just over¬†$6000 so¬†can we all make this happen?
