The Difference

Director: Music Video

 Friends Like These


Swinging into Minneapolis this summer, I directed this music video for the up and coming local band, Friends Like These.


This was all done with the fantastic support of the Minneapolis College of Art + Design and their summer high school  college program called SES.


The point of the summer program was to learn to make music videos, so I had the class of teenagers shoot and edit this music video, under my direction.


Since none of us had done this before, I figured that shooting a live music video would be the most simple first step (assuming we will ever try this madness again). It was knocked out in just two weeks -- with only one week to edit, and premiered gloriously on the final day of the SES program with a great theatrical screening.
