Sorry its been awhile since our last update, but you know we've been keeping busy with cool projects here at JNP.
First up, "Battered" the 2nd video we did with New Jersey metal heads Ominous was finally released, and received great response right away. If you haven't seen it yet, click HERE. The 3rd video we are doing with these crazy f***ers is set for August at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in W.Virgina. This video is going to feature some "special guests" of the ghostly kind. 3 words on this project...I CANT WAIT!!!
So back in early November, Spaceblues mastermind Charlie Ricks flew in from Denver to help direct and over see his 7th, YES I SAID 7TH video with JNP, "Exile". If you haven't seen it yet, click HERE. We had special help on this one with the great acting of Charley Miller. He made the main character "come to life", and we hope to work with him again in upcoming productions. Spaceblues is hoping to have JNP and Charley Miller head to Denver mid 2011 to do a new short story film, that will tie together all the characters from our previous videos. Can you say "head trip"!??! haha.
In Mid December we finally got to work with San Diego's My Elysian. We were looking forward to this one, and in 2 quick days, we filmed everything we needed to make their debut video for "Break Me Down". After I finished editing this video, we were given a special treat by the band. My Elysian played a big show in Hillcrest where half way through their set, they stopped to debut the video for all their friends and fans on a big screen. The crowd loved it, and it was great way for me to see people react directly to all the hard work I had put into this video. Haven't seen yet? Well click HERE.
VERY EXCITED to say, that as I'm writing this, I am also working on my band, In Every Breath's first video in almost 4 years for the song "Temptress". Initial shooting began in late November in my old hometown, Detroit Michigan. We were honored to film at the Russell Industrial Complex where other famous videos and movies were filmed. With the help of 3 young local actors, we spent the day capturing some cool stuff. Then, in late December, after 2 weather postponements, we finally got the performance footage we needed, shooting in a secret location out near Alpine CA. This video is very special to me, for obvious reasons, and I hope to have it up within a week or two for everyone to see.
With all that we still have been very busy with projects, including filming Keven Porter's "Darklight" debut performance last night at the Poway's Center for Performing Arts for an upcoming video for the title track of Keven's recent album "Darklight". Also on deck for filming next weekend is San Diego's up and coming rapper, Tonic Spray. We're slated to film him January 30th in several San Diego locations. We are real excited about this kid, he is a unique talent, and we are stoked to be doing his first video with him.
AND, we still got the chance to FINALLY move the office for JNP. After years at the crowded beach's, we headed inland to a new building that allowed for more space for gear and a dedicated office for day to day operations and editing. As with all moves, it was hectic, but, it sure feels great to finally be settled in. The new place is amazing and its real proof that all the hard work we've been doing is paying off!!! By the way, the new office number is (619)-303-8440
Well, I think that's about it. I better get going and get back to editing. Thanks again to everyone we've worked with along the way, and going to be working with this year...as I said before...LOOKOUT 2011, Here comes JNP!!!!!!
