On March 2nd, 2009 I was hired by the Funk/Rock/Reggae band WhoGas to do a promotional shoot with them for a press kit. It took place at Ex’pression College for the Digital Arts in Emeryville, CA (drummer Chris Paxton is a graduate of the school, and I contact I had from the Funk/Hip Hop/Rock group Nexus).
The school is not only a learning institute, but houses a high-end recording facility that has captured the sounds of artists such as: Dave Grohl (of the Foo Fighters), Sammy Hagar, 3 Doors Down, Jack Johnson, Jimmy Eat World, Bon Jovi, Tears for Fears, Dave Gahan (of Depeche Mode), Tori Amos, and Train to name a few.
Many of these artists performed in Ex’pression’s Meyer Performance Hall, which is where this shoot took place. The room contains a 20ft. green screen that we used as a backdrop.
This was my first experience shooting on a green screen, which was a lot of fun. The guys brought a few changes of clothing and we shot for about an hour or so. Below are a few finished shots from the night, as well as a video montage of the entire shoot.
