Short Circuits

In early February, I directed and edited a bunch of short (extremely short) music videos for SoCal psychedelic punk band Roosterhead, for their new album Short Circuits.

Short Circuits is Roosterhead's exploration into writing captivating sub-minute-length songs, with a lyrical emphasis on relevant social and political commentary. The 14 songs in 12 minutes are a barrage of concise, compact statements that avoid taking even an extra second to get their points across.

All 14 videos were shot over the course of a week on zero budget, and highlighted the band's colorful DIY aesthetic. I directed A Game of Replacement, Apocalyptic SightseeingJune Gloom And The Celestial Loneliness, Rat Race At The End Of The Rainbow and Attitude For Sale. I was DP on The Tribe, MUA on Anthropomorphic Everyday Objects, one pair of arms on Independent Princess, and Chief Cat Wrangler on Don't Fry My Mind.

Check out all 14 videos here (total run-time 12 minutes):
