This summer we'll be filming the fourth anniversary special for the PogieJoe channel...and I want it to be big. We're making a 45-minute musical comedy and we want you to help! As a reward we will be offering PogieJoe merchandise for the first time ever. Lots more info below in the video! Let's make this incredible!
Well, the last time I made an AdvisorJoe was July of 2012. Now thanks to high demand from my girlfriend and lack of other ideas I brought it back! I spent the day filming around Elyria before work and this is the result. Enjoy!
I, not even being a very good musician, could be inspired to write a whole album of songs just based off misinterpretations of my favorite They Might Be Giants tunes. Being that they are one of my favorite bands, I listen to them obsessively while driving and I so happened to wildly misinterpret the song I was listening to as about a tree lamenting itself being there. But then I thought, in perfectly insane Joe-thought: well I would actually listen to that song.
So in collaboration with several animators I worked with and found on Fiverr, some creative commons licensed videos, my dad's guitar, and GarageBand I created the following video. I admit the music video itself is kinda meh and rushed, but I'm pretty satisfied for the most part with how the song turned out! So maybe you could just close your eyes and listen or something. I won't judge.
I actually had the chance to film this video with two very good friends of mine, Mike and Tyler, because we all work on The Outdoor Option together. We had some extra time and knocked it out in about an hour. At the recent premiere for the show, I also met Kristy Lee Cook, who was in the Top 10 for American Idol in the seventh season of American Idol, and is a well-respected country singer as well as a once reality TV star of her own show. She seemed utterly confused as to what she was participating in but she had fun!
I know I said that I'd make a video only every two weeks but I had this ready to go already! Plus it's short and it was just featured on the awesome YouTube channel The Good Stuff, both below!
Huzzah! It's the first PogieJoe video of 2014! Can I have another huzzah? HUZZAH. Thank you, fingers typing on my keyboard. That was very kind.
This video was filmed on a day off from work due to the sub-zero degree Fahrenheit temperatures. Originally this video was just going to have the second to last part but results were a bit underwhelming on camera so instead I tried to do as much as I could within the hour before sunset. A mad dash, if you will!
Though chilled to the bones, I hope the results are satisfactory. It was probably about -10 degrees Fahrenheit with the wind chill so you better! I suffer for your enjoyment! Special thanks to my brother Ben for being so excited about going out in deadly weather.
Friendly reminder that the Outdoor Option will be premiering on Sportsman tonight at 7:30 PM EST if you're interested in seeing my name zip by at the end! *slowly twists knife further into your back* You know...if you want!
Happy New Year to you all. Here's to an incredible 2014! Watch the video below for a recap and some news...
I deeply apologize for my lack of video last week. Between semester finals, working on The Outdoor Option TV show for Sportsman, and helping out with an upcoming film called Colony 52, I had absolutely no time! Still pretty busy this week, but I had time to whip up something for y'all. Happy holidays!
