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)

Andrew Austin

My favourite Renata Kaveh took these gorgeous photos of my other favourite Andrew Austin at the Berkeley Church. We’ve got lots of really great ones, but they’re not being released all at once. Soon though!! Exciting! Amazing job by art director and yet another favourite, Jen Thomas. Andrew is rolling out a bunch of artsy-fun stuff under the umbrella of a new collective called “Glowpoke”… It’s a neat little bow to wrap up all the coolness that’s going on lately, like… the video we made and we’re releasing at the Drake Underground on December 2!! I know, I know, that was a lot of information at once and I am breaking a lot of PR tenets, but try to stay with me. We’ve been so busy doing all this fun stuff that I didn’t even have time to mention it here yet!!


Who: Andrew Austin and the Fuss with special guests Ron Hawkins (Lowest of the Low), Everlea Acoustic and DJs Slow Clap
What: No Flowers single release and video world premiere
When: Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009, 8pm
Where: The Drake Underground, 1150 Queen Street West, Toronto

Teaser for “No Flowers”:

P.S. What do you think of the name “Glowpoke”??

Renata Kaveh in WOMEN x WOMEN Exhibit

From Renata Kaveh photography

blogTO features an interview with the co-founders of the WOMEN x WOMEN photography exhibit on this week during Toronto Fashion week. It’s at The Fashion House at 560 King St. West. on March 21-22. The article mentions my friend Renata towards the end. Says one of the co-founders, Alice:

I’m happy for some of the other emerging artists whose visions really solidified in their submission piece for WOMEN x WOMEN, Renata Kaveh and Mila Victoria in particular, who are showing really different but fantastic pieces.

(I had to correct misspellings “peice” and “peices” up there… ugh… anyway.)

So  go support this great show and talented emerging photographers. I’m excited to see!
