Jumper… and lots more!

Last weekend, a music video was filmed for the song “Jumper” by Barrens. As with any film project, it was a group effort, and I want to take a moment to thank the folks who helped us out:

Thanks to my fellow band members – J. Slickwood and Clay Smith – for supporting my vision as director. Many thanks to my friends Jeff McKinney and C. DeWayne Cunningham for coming through as assistant director and assistant camera.

Special thanks to the stars of the video – Greg Loggins and V. Serrano. Y’all did a wonderful job.

Thanks to Johnny and Beth Veres and James Weddle for providing locations for the shoot. Y’all be sure to check out Johnny and Beth’s band Electric Blue Yonder and go get some food and beer at Goat Haus Biergarten. (Ooh, their weekend brunch, y’all… so good.)

Thanks to Yvette Hochberg and Glenn Grant for helping us out with props for the shoot. Thanks to Sharon Sanders for coming through for us at the last minute, to Rod Williams for helping us get in the last location, and to Lou Wood for helping out on set.

On behalf of Barrens and Terrible Master Films, thank you all!

Now, since I mentioned Electric Blue Yonder, that happens to be one of the bands – along with our buds in V-8 Death Car – that will be performing with us at our album release show on Friday, Aug. 16. That’s coming up at Commerce Beerworks. Click here to see the Facebook event.

In film news, the Foolish Henry Films short Bad Deal, by writer/director Shane Gillis, is premiering at Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham this month. It’s in the “Alabama Narratives” short film block on Sunday, Aug. 25 at 4:55 p.m. See the full schedule here.

The writer/director of The Song You’ll Never Hear – Stephen Poff – has started an IndieGoGo campaign to raise film festival submission funds. (Any indie filmmaker will tell you – those get expensive.) You can see the campaign and take a look at the perks here.

And Secret Weapon from writer/director Christopher S. Hubbard will be part of the Lanett City Film Festival and the Central Florida Film Festival this year, so congrats to him and the entire cast and crew on that!

And… check out some new music and video performances from my friends in the Abusements and The Last Thing You Remember, courtesy of the Montgomery Advertiser. Links to those below:
