Andrew Austin – Two More Time

Monday, July 5th, 2010

So Andrew wrote a song that Ritz Crackers really liked and so they put it on their cute commercial. Or that’s the short version of the story anyway. The commercial is about an enterprising little girl who bribes a line up of kids with buttery crackers to get to the front where her crush is waiting. However, when she finally gets to sit with the object of her affection, she has run out of crackers to share with him! What happens next? You’ll have to watch the spot to find out:

So the response to the commercial has been phenomenal. People are going crazy for this song, searching for it on the internet and they are really into it. Makes sense cause it is a really great song. Andrew is releasing it on his next CD so it’s not ready yet… but people want to hear it! So I made a recording of it to tide people over. The real recording of it is going to be way better than this one of course. Remember that.

Also, we shot a video for it and that was really fun! We’re releasing it with the song. The people I have shown think that it is “cute” and “funny,” and even though they are all my friends, I think that is a good sign! Can’t wait to show people and see what strangers think. I hope it’s done soon and I hope people are still excited about the song and to see it by that time!

Two More Time Video Shoot

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

It was my bday and it was a video shoot and here are some teaser pictures! Oh, it makes you so interested right? One take video, no cuts! Very fun.

jay and jon shooting
Jon was the DP and Jay was the focus puller and a whole lot more as crew was tight. We only got everyone down to the beach and started rehearsing as the sun was going down so… Miraculous that it went off ok. (Photo credit: Elizabeth Kerim)

prepping the shot
Jon looked really cool wearing his steady cam equipment. I want to show you the other tonnes of people in the video and the set, but that would spoil everything. EVERYTHING. (photo credit: Angèle Morgan)

Me directing
This is my debut directing look I’m giving Andrew Austin! Can you tell I practice it often? (Photo credit: Elizabeth Kerim)

Andrew Austin Two More Time
Andrew is totally in character here. He’s a real acting talent. We asked the dog politely to leave and luckily he agreed that he didn’t want to ruin our shoot. How big of him. (photo credit: Angèle Morgan)

Amazing song called “Choke” by Andrew Austin being played live in the video below. Jay Shuster did an incredible job filming too. I love the simple, but extremely cool concept! I think it was all Jay’s idea. Watch til the end!!

Amazing what can be done at a cottage long weekend with talented folks.

Yay Hot Dog Garbage for directing this super cool, well-thought out low budj video for the amazing SHAD that looks like it could have been shot behind my old house or most of the people-I-know’s houses!

Going to a play

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Here is a video that I took a while ago after a fun weekend in London, but never posted on this here website. I like this new song by Andrew, but the harmony singing by the Fuss during the bridge leaves a little to be desired. It’s ok for me to say that, they already know. Oh the correct title is “I’m on a Lake.” My bad, No, sarah is not cool.

I’m excited about seeing a play tonight with my dear Lori and Owen Pallett tomorrow with my new friend Jason but part of me just wants to chill out and play Plants vs. Zombies on my iPhone all night. Nay, for the rest of my life.
