Well it's finally out! "Slick Disaster", the first of many videos we hope to create in support of the new album. I'm particularly proud of it because it was made on a very small budget with help from close friends and family (Less than $100). I can honestly say it turned out exactly as I had hoped. I'm not interested in presenting myself as a big budget artist. I want my videos to have an indie, gorilla shot feel. I'm very proud of the fact that I'm putting together all this work without any label support. In many ways it is my badge of honor to be an entirely independent music artist so I want all my videos to reflect this.
With Slick Disaster I wanted to croon into the camera while also reinforcing the feel and aesthetics of the entire Television Graveyard album concept. Sort of a pirate TV station feel where the technology is old and unstable. I wanted to try to capture the charm of videos from the early days of MTV and the 80's. So far the response has been amazing and I want to thank everyone who's taken the time to watch it, share and comment on in.
Beyond the visuals in the video there are deeper ideas there. As an independent artist it's very easy to feel lost in the sea of static of the internet age. I wanted the video to reflect that. This is what has lead to the TV imagery and visual interference throughout the video. My "look" is what I call "Renegade Zo" a figure relegated to this monochromatic static wasteland. Only the song brings color to this world because only the song really matters. After it is over he is pulled back into the video lines and white static noise. This all ends up being a very visual metaphor for where independent artists live in our fast paced, rapidly consuming culture. Lost between the cracks of obscurity but still with a deep love and passion for the craft. -Enzo
