The Big Idea…Lindsey Wade Was Right
Today we were in the studio with The Wade Brothers shooting a new spot featuring the leadership at Pendulum. Devan was the first to go so I had a little fun shadowing the man behind the camera. It’s funny to me how often people take for granted the skill required to be a successful photographer/director/business owner at the top of your game. The time that I’ve spent with these guys has taught me that it takes a lot – charm, charisma, vision, impeccable taste, and hustle, to name a few. The really funny take away from all of this is the fact that It’s obvious we’re having a good time even though we hate getting our pictures taken…”Respect The Shooter”.
In answer to your questions:
1. Yes, that’s a skateboard half-pipe in the background
2. Music – Dwele “Greater Than One” LP – Track #9 “Swank”
3. I know, I know – shooting video with my iPhone in portrait orientation messed the whole thing up.
4. To be continued? Yeah, I’m next…
