My Bible and My Gun (2020 Director's Cut)
This new song by Douglas Greer is a twist on "the bring your gun to church" thing. His character from the 19th century is going to bring his bible to a gun fight, reasoning that whoever wins will be the one who needs the bible. Sound track produced by Mark Hallman (Carole King, Ani DiFranco) at Congress House Studio. Featuring some nice guitar work by David Grissom (Dixie Chicks, John Mellencamp). Licensing by Pond5, Videvo, Shutterstock, and Artgrid.
The Safe Word (2019)
Video produced for the band These Fine Moments. Jason Scott from B-Sides & Badlands sums it up pretty well: Consequences for our actions can hit us hard. We try to make amends, but life’s paybacks are inescapable. Texas duo These Fine Moments – of Robert Watts and Hilary Kaufmann – are a self-prescribed mix of folk, pop, and depression. That’s not more evident than with their new song/video called “The Safe Word,” wrought of acoustic guitar, piano, and a somber shroud of darkness. “Another lesson hard learned / Lay down while you created a diversion,” Kaufmann’s quivering vocal cords icy and heavy. The video navigates over-exposed reds and blues, pools both grainy and smooth, as their mental states reach full capacity and they contend with what they’ve done.
Ok To Drive (2019)
Another from These Fine Moments. Footage shot around These Fine Moments Headquarters, paired with stock footage from Pond5 and misc. b-roll provided by the band. Has an organic, d.y.i. feel to it, with a great sounding audio track produced by Mark Hallman, Congress House Studios in Austin.
The Big Lie (2019)
Audio track written, performed, recorded and mixed by Robert Watts. Back in the 40's, the U.S. Government did a psychological analysis on Adolf Hitler to figure out how he manipulated so many people. The same tactics he used are now being used by Trump's handlers to sow discourse and spread lies and misinformation. Stock footage licensed by Pond5, along with protest footage shot by Robert Watts.
My Bad Brain (2017)
This was the first video undertaking for These Fine Moments, using a variety of tools including green screen. We just jumped right in there with an epic production. Uses mostly footage provided by These Fine Moments with a few stock clips from Pond5. Barry Dorfman filmed the studio footage. Audio track produced by Mark Hallman, Congress House Studios in Austin.
