Wahoo! Spring is finally here in NYC & there's nothing better than dusting off your bike to take a spin around the East Village. Brings me back a couple springs - to shooting this video for Dean & Britta's rendition of a Lee Hazelwood & Ann Margaret tune...
I have to say, am in love with Dean & Britta! They were an absolute dream to work with, as were idea-woman director Sera Rogacki and hair star Andre Gunn.
In addition to "You Turn My Head Around", Sera and Andre and I have done a handful of cool projects together. It takes a good team (plus much fun, flowing coffee & creativity, loads of talent, and excellent editing) to make righteous videos!
See here, the Strokes' Nicolai Fraiture as Nickel Eye.. We made this video for his song "Brandy of the Damned":
Here's another cool concept video for local dolls The Hong Kong. "Tongue Tied" is set to a Bonnie & Clyde story featuring Dean Wareham of - yep, you guess it! - Dean & Britta. The song and album were produced by Ric Ocasek.
