PHOTOSHOOT: The Monsters

A while back it was decided that I was going to be the lucky photographer (out of around 40 applicants I heard) to shoot the new promo photo for the world famous, Monsters of the Morning. A radio show that has offended audiences in the Central Florida market (and now world market thanks to XM Radio, IHeartRadio & The Internet) for years. When booked to shoot the new promo photos for Host, Russ Rollins, I was asked to shoot the whole Monster crew. Here is the new "Movie Poster" design that we went with. I understand that they will be printed into full 24x36 posters and distributed around Orlando to fans.

Also, here is a video that Daniel shot while everyone hung out in my Kitchen, waiting for Drunky The Bear to arrive...

Interview with Indie Cinema Showcase

Our good buddies John Thiesen, Tim Anderson, and Gerry Godbout run a local Orlando television show called Indie Cinema Showcase, that focuses on local filmmakers and gives advice and information on the film industry. I had the pleasure of sitting down as a (last minute) interviewee on their episode themed around Music Videos. The show screens our "2:22 (It's Time To Die)" video we had done for the band Cryptidz, as well as work from our friends Adam ArNali & David Bermejo. I'll let it speak for itself below...

Our buddies in Empyrean, a very popular Orlando Metal group, had called upon me once again to shoot a new promotional photo for the band. Last time we shot was in a darkened corner of the Fiddler's Green Tavern, so this time we decided to kick it up a notch. After the controversial Music Video I directed for them, it was mandatory.

I shot each of the members individually with the plans to composite them into this Vatican-ish dungeon bathhouse room deal. I like to think it came out fairly metal.

Check out the band on their Official Website.
