Things may happen, but you get back up.

It all started with me waking up in the morning getting excited for smithery video opportunity. The situation was my wrist was damaged from being over used. I was kind of disappointed because of all the days it had to happen today. Thankfully I was able to find a wrist sprain since this want my first rodeo breaking it messing up my hands. I then packed my car up for the music video shoot and grabbed some food for my musicians because food and hydration is important.

Once we all arrived at the location we had to set up for the day walking up three floors with instruments and props for the video. Everyone was exhausted of course, thankfully we had a couple of hands to help us set up. I then dropped the healthy donuts on the desk and yelled," their it is!!!!" It was quite funny how quick everyone went for the food. It was nice of them to offer money for me getting the snacks, but I declined because hey everyone needs to eat right???

After we were done setting up it was time to get down to business and start directing the music video. We only had a limited time to shoot to compete with the sun through the windows. I was quite impressed by their determination and their desire to want to be on point with the music playing behind camera. I have to say though it was a bit difficult shooting with once hand and barely able to use the other hand. The footage came out phenomenal though.

Things were going really good and we were about to be finished until unfortunately their was a hiccup which made us have to choose a different location. It was no one's fault it's just things happen. As we packed up I could tell the lead singer Andrew Swauger was deeply disappointed. He kept apologising and thought he was water my time. I was trying to tell him that things just happen were all young and learning. I never let the age range away the quality that's the first thing. Maybe this was meant to happen and the next location will be way better. I still plan on using the footage I caught though because it was too good to just let go.

We then meet up at Tracy Miller's studio to discuss a plan B and decided on a new location. I'm proud to see how much they really want this though. This group shows that they want this and not let this hiccup bring them down to hard. As they say though everything happens for a reason, can't edit to shoot more footage with the band!
