Blackheart Records has released the Girl In a Coma video I directed. It should be playing on a music video channel near you soon, until then here's the YouTube version. I love YouTube, it's free, accessible, democratic, and able to disseminate ideas and video instantaneously across the world. Unfortunately, the filmmaker in me hates the way it looks. Especially when it's one of my own pieces. Pixelated, grainy, stuttering. Believe me, the video looks much better in its original HiDef form. For those wanting to see a better version go to the Quicktime here. In fact, I encourage you to watch it there. A much better viewing experience.
The video's exteriors were shot in San Antonio (of course), props to the Mission Drive-In, Whataburger, Flipside Records, and the "devil girl" drawings by Cruz Ortiz. Studio stuff was shot in Austin. Produced by Faith Radle, the studio DP was Steve Acevedo, editing by Peggy Davis, wardrobe by Christine Cantella, hair and makeup by John Burney, my friend Ray Santisteban drove me around as I shot the S.A. footage, oftentimes leaning out the car window (me, not him), and the amazing hand lettering and drawings by artist Vincent Valdez. Nina Diaz is the singer and guitar player, her sister Phannie plays drums, and Jenn Alva is on bass. Girl In a Coma is a San Antonio band.
