INTRONAUT music video

check it out here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZYhDtg31Wc

Sera Timms directed it, and I DP'd it. fuckin epic, should be played in other mediums besides the internet...

it's pretty intense progressive metal, so prepare for both an aural and visual assault.

New Video Promo for Neurosis

check it out on YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBGGjgt0ZcQ

as part of the documentary (still untitled), i interviewed Neurosis and shot one of their concerts. turns out they dug the idea of this doc, so the idea of a mini-doc about their new album was conceived.

folks are diggin it thus far:

1000 hits on the day it was posted, and it was in YouTube's Top 50 Most Viewed Music Videos of that day. right on!

other than that - all of the live shows have been shot for the doc. just 4 more interviews, and the "filming" part of this insanely long process is complete. i'm hoping to have an edit done by the end of august...

The Chameleons DVD finally released!

...on June 26th, that is - just go here for more info:

http://www.ascensiondvd.co.uk/

4 years ago, The Scourge Productions was given the privilege to film The Chameleons in concert, during the California portion of their tour. The footage came out beautifully, so, with the band we decided to produce a double-DVD live set of their two nights in San Francisco.

You can check out the trailer, here:

http://www.thescourge.com/chameleons_trailer

This is a 100-percent Scourge Production, and this is a live DVD that is 100-percent endorsed by the band. Check it out!
