Weeks ago a friend of mine who is also a film maker suggested making a music video for one of the songs off my new CD. We set up a brainstorming session and came up with a concept for the video right away and sketched up some basic ideas.

It’s an ambitious endeavor and I am a bit nervous about getting it all together. He suggested that we come up with something outlandish at first and scale back if we did not have the resources to pull it off. I went ahead and sketched out the concepts as story boards…which took about five full days of sketching, coloring and finishing each panel. I abandoned the coloring as it was taking too long to complete…the last third are just black and white sketches…but I am very happy with how they came out. It’s my first experience with story boarding for a film project, however I’ve always known I have the skill for it.

Here are the boards. I’ll leave it to you to guess which song the video will be for.
