Slothpop calls it quits!

I heard a rumor that Slothpop was calling it quits last week. I was crushed. To make things worse, it was just after I had spent an evening enjoying Slothpop’s lead singer/writer Ko performing with the Indianapolis Symphony.

It’s a real shame. Slothpop was easily one of Indy’s most accesible and amazing bands.

Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow Though

Know No Stranger (and a handful of my favorite local videographers/photographers) put together a video from their last show – an epic end to the Slothpop era. It’s a video of my favorite song, “One,” a bouncy major key celebration of love (or something) with a bouncing bassline and driving disco beat, splashes of violin and many, many glorious harmonies.

Enjoy!

The Magic Bowl

To continue to promote Cookie Me! I storyboarded and shot this 30 second spot, titled “Magic Bowl!”

It should have been a 4HourProject but I started playing with animated type in AfterEffects and that sucked the majority of my four hours.

I look forward to learning more AfterEffects in the next two months.
