City City “Promises” Music Video

It is my absolute pleasure to present the new City City “Promises” music video, finally completed after many months of work.


A special thanks to those who were part of this process. I thank you all for your commitment, dedication, and patience.

Those people include: Noah Baron, Benjamin Brooks, Lei Deng, Omar Gonzalez, Eric Grush, Jessica Hoffman, Ashphord Jacoway, Michael Kelley, Kevin Lee, Chris McKee,Cori McCullough, Ed Munoz, Mandi Neece, Susan Papa, Nicholas Ralbovsky, David Schreiber, Emily Spaulding, Meagan Wilson, Da Zhang, and of course the band: Dan McCollister, Jeff Kirchner, Kyle Minichelli, Valerie Ngai, and Jarrett Portnoy.


It’s funny how you can spend so much time working towards something, all your energy pouring into it, only to blink and find yourself on the other side.

That’s precisely what has happened with the City City music video I’ve been working on.  After many months of work we have finally shot the last of it.  Of course that lands me solidly in post-production, and there is much much more to be done.  But that’s another matter.

Rather than recount typical production war stories about blown fuses, hairy schedules, or abused actors (I sincerely hope they forgive me), I think I’ll just share a few pictures.  Truth is, all said and done my brain is a bit slushy and I’m surprised I’ve been able to string this many coherent sentences together.  Or is the giraffe still contemplating the bowl of oatmeal aboard the 747 to Dubai?  Maybe I should get some rest.

Enjoy the pictures and stay tuned for updates as we get closer to completion.  Fingers crossed that all that keying/compositing won’t drive my editor completely insane.

I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge everyone who has put their all into these last few days on set.  Once again in alphabetical order, they are:

Noah Baron, Benjamin Brooks, Lei Deng, Omar Gonzalez, Eric Grush, Jessica Hoffman, Ashphord Jacoway, Jeff Kirchner, Kevin Lee, Dan McCollister, Kyle Minichelli, Cori McCullough, Ed Munoz, Valerie Ngai, and Jarrett Portnoy.
