We were excited to find out that “Newfound View” was featured in a Twin-Cities PBS show called MN Originalback in February. The video features Ernest Miller who alters his ceramic vessels and uses custom glazes, creating signature pieces that bridge modern and traditional design. You can check out or buy some of his work at http://www.ernestmiller.com/ as well as sign up for pottery classes. Check out the video and expect to see some cool pottery technique and listen for “Newfound View” at about 2:55.
Watch the animated music video by Emily Fritze for “Newfound View” below.
After about a year in the making of frame-by-frame animation, the music video for “Newfound View” is complete! A big thanks to Emily Fritze for all the hard work. It’s not easy being a freelancer in the city. Enjoy!
As you may have recalled in one of my previous posts from last year, the ever so talented Emily Fritze of Minneapolis is working hard on creating a music video for “Newfound View.” We are both very excited about it and can’t wait to share it with the world. We both crafted a cool story that will unfold throughout this imaginary world where strange creatures exists.
Emily has really outdone herself and has spent numerous hours crafting the art and animation being used and I always tell her “I wish I had your artistic drawing ability.” You can say I am a fan of her style and originality. The thing is, when I draw something that I am thinking about, no matter how hard I try, it NEVER looks right. Even after trying for almost 2 years as a kid growing up. She has a talent that’s for sure, one that she works on constantly and all the hard work / hours she puts in shows it. In fact, she created my band logo, helped with my album art and most of the art seen throughout this site.
Below shows a transition scene for the work-in-progress video, “Newfound View.”
Yesterday my debut album titled “Can’t Steal Soul” was finally released! The excitement, anticipation and encouragement from family, friends and fans has been extremely supportive and uplifting, thank you all.
I will be spending the next year or more playing out and promoting this album as much as I can. There is an animated video already in the works that Emily Fritze is working on for “Newfound View” and is looking very promising, we sat and talked for quite a while about the story-line for it and we are so excited to share it with the world in the next few months.
Again, thank you all for giving my album a listen and sharing it, the response has been amazing so far.
