Music Video Shoot

This past weekend I had the opportunity to be on set for a music video with directors Jeremy Alter and Meiert Avis. Both are well-known directors in the world of music videos, commercials and films. It was a real pleasure to "talk film" with Meiert and Jeremy, who now primarily shoot on digital with the changing times of technology in the entertainment industry.

(On Location --- Jeremy Alters, Melissa and Meiert Avis)

Meiert has directed music videos for some big names in music, which include: Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Avril Lavigne, Jennifer Lopez, Evanescence, Matchbox 20, H.I.M, and U2 to name a few. His work has won multiple awards an nominations including a Grammy Award for U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name."

Jeremy has worked on numerous motion pictures as well as directed and produced music videos for Social Distortion, Halestorm, New Found Glory, Chris Cornell, and Mishon.

I am not at liberty to discuss the details of the music video at this time, so be sure to check back soon for an update!
