I have been fortunate enough to be introduced to the band Olassa. They are, in my best description, an Indie folk band with roots to 30’s era Americana music. I may be way off on that, but I think not. We also were lucky enough to be able to work with Olassa and produce a couple of videos for them. One of the songs was “Where Will I Live.”
To me the song is a haunting introspective look at our eternal existence Our location was the Masonic Center in Salina, Kansas. We felt the long corridors filled with group photos of men long since passed would provide the ideal backdrop. We also wanted to create an “out of body” feel to the performance. We did this by mounting a long board on a doorway dolly and having each of the band members perform while “on the plank.” Chad operated steadicam on the opposite end of the dolly.
I am quite pleased at how it came out.
Here are a few clips of the doorway dolly with the plank.
