Music Videos I have performed in or have been a part of in some way.
Deadstar Assembly - Send Me an Angel (2003)
"Send Me An Angel", the debut music video from Deadstar Assembly. Somatic Recordings 2002.
This was one of the first serious music videos I got to be a part of and the experience was amazing. At the time I felt like DSA was larger than life and going from 0-100mph in a second. There was a full crew for this video shoot and it was done in this huge warehouse that was run down and no longer being used. The Director Rip Odebralski had some awesome leftover pieces for a movie he shot and we got to use it for the video shoot. We also spray painted that huge DSA logo on the floor for the shoot and it took about 3 days of shooting to complete. Most of it was done with a green screen background and we were able to get some students from the art institute to help out with the animations and I believe the instructor let them do it as an extra credit project. It was really fun and a crazy experience I'll never forget.

We ended up getting to shoot inside this cool school auditorium that was under construction at the time. We went on a day when no one was there and quickly set up shop to shoot the video and get out as fast as possible. It was extremely hot since the AC was off in the building during the shoot and I remember dripping wet with sweat and having to keep stopping for us to fix our makeup. lol. This music video does hit home for many people as well as myself. I've always been glad to be a part of it.
Deadstar Assembly - Dejected (2006)
"Dejected" Music Video from our Dark Hole Sessions Vol. 2 DVD. "Dejected" is also featured on the re-release of our international sophomore effort Unsaved (Bonus Tracks Version). Filmed live in Concert in Orlando, FL.
We got to do a bad ass 3-camera shoot at the Hardrock LIVE! in Orlando Florida. This was during the halloween horror nights weekend and we got to play a sick show to a packed house. I believe I was told there was about 3k people there that night. I have the full live show on my youtube channel here
) if you would like to watch this performance.
Deadstar Assembly - Killing Myself Again (2006)
"Killing Myself Again" Video from Deadstar Assembly's "Unsaved" (Bonus Tracks Version). Shot on location in Miami Beach, FL July 2006. Lensed and edited by Darkhak.
This video shoot was a lot of fun to do as well. Lets face it, they were all fun to do! We actually documented the whole process of shooting this video and released it on our second DVD called Dark Hole Sessions Vol II

For some reason I decided to stay up the night before and party with my friends not realizing this music video was going to go on all day and all night. I thought it was going to be an easy shoot and unfortunately halfway through the night the lens fell off the really expensive camera during some of the quick shaky motion shots so we had to take a long break to see if it was fixable. The camera was being flung around to get the effects you see in the video and it slipped.... the worst part was that it was a borrowed camera!! Luckily DB was able to take care of the cost to repair the camera but hey, the video came out pretty cool!
