ImLazarus

A (more) naive me in 2015 shooting a music video as ninjas with my bandmate Jeremy. I actually remember thinking the face covering was kind of fun for playing the role. Little did he know… All joking aside, this was a fun day (or two?) of shooting. We saved manpower by doubling up on our roles and also played the antagonist ninjas when possible. It was a very Reno 911-esq reusing of our cast lol. We also had a few extra friends dress up for the larger shots when they weren’t helping as a crew.

Maybe it’s because I was lucky enough to grow up during the apex of professional wrestling, but for some reason everyone on-set thought I looked especially believable being beaten up by someone half my size. I can only hope it was a sign of my ability to sell a hit to the head, and not how stiff the rest of my “acting” is. Either way I got to have a few extra close-ups as a ninja, I’m told my eyes give it away when you’re watching the video.

@KlashDrums was remodeled not long after we shot this so it’s a fun snapshot of both time and place since this is also where we rehearsed. I had the outfit from this video shoot for like four years and then finally got rid of it thinking there was never again going to be a use for a black tactical suit and mask. Nowadays I don’t look much different leaving the house. And I know what you’re thinking but don’t worry, we were making sure to stay hydrated. As is clearly indicated by the water in our hands.

All credit goes to Jeff Noller for the quality of the music and the video. I learned a lot about how to lead a band from him and I’ll always value the time and experience I got in the 2-ish years I was there. Another Easter Egg is that part about me dropping my pick. Up until then in shooting I had no idea that was a plot point, so I had been playing all the shots leading up to it with just my fingers... Since I commonly switched between pick and finger styles in that band. It took me a good 10 minutes of convincing Jeff that people wouldn’t notice. Even now he might not be crazy about me telling people, but if you’re looking for it you can see it.

I’ll put the video link in the comments.
