MTV2, to be exact, on Headbangers Ball, Saturday, November 15, 2008. 2am eastern, 11pm pacific. hopefully, they will play it again...
if you'd like to see it online, go here:
the group: Pelican
the song: Lost in the Headlights
director: myself, Kenneth Thomas
the premise: an instrumental metal band tries desperately to elude a delusional fellow that believes they need a singer.
check it out! and if you dig it, please vote for it as "one of the best metal videos of the year"! do that here:
thanks for watching!
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:
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...
