Heads or Tails

Wed 12.15.10

Early in 2010, LA-based band Shaimus approached me and asked if I would be willing to animate a music video for them. I was honored to do so. It took me about 8 months, hundreds of photos, a cross country flight, gallons of Jamesons, and no less than 50 crashed Flash sessions, but I did it. Without further build up, here is the fun stuff:

This was an incredible learning experience. Shaimus, thanks for the opportunity! I’ll be billing you soon.


I Loves Youse, Shaimus

Tue 09.21.10

Keeping on my Shaimus theme from last week, here’s a little ditty I made for them at the start of 2010. The band wanted to give their fans a chance to shine, so Shaimus offered a free song to anyone who submitted a fan photo or video. I had just gotten a video camera, so I had to do something.

Here is the final Shaimus’ Fan Tribute, so be sure to check it out.

Here is my entry:

Hanging with Shaimus

Tue 09.14.10

A few weeks ago I went out to LA to hang out with my cousins, who just so happen to be in the band Shaimus. You may have heard of them, as they were featured in such games as Guitar Hero and Rock Band 2. With Shaimus I drank a bunch, barely slept, and ate terribly. Suffice it to say, it was a great vacation.

While in LA I joined Shaimus on two gigs. I took the opportunity to snap a gang of photos. Here are a select few:
