Peppermint "Excuse My Beauty" Day 2 Director Brendan Cochrane DP Matt Workman

Peppermint "Excuse My Beauty" Day 2 Director Brendan Cochrane DP Matt Workman. Great shoot at HK Lounge. Once again the crew delivered big besides being thrown curve balls at the last minute. Twenty extras didn't show - the Fire Department came by after the hazer set off the club alarm and we had to deal with getting a select number of shots in a small window. Big thanks to Frank who came through even though the budget didn't, Matt for dealing with the location and doing a great job lighting, Tracy for staying on top of the schedule and managing a multitude of tasks, Osaliki, for bartending and rigging, Tony, JP and Greame who did a great job with G&E, Diana for set photo and cameo and Marc Miller & Marc Levine for all their support while I'm at work trying to put this together. Looking forward to some big projects in 09 and I definitely want these guys on the crew. Thank you.

Peppermint "Excuse My Beauty" Director Brendan Cochrane DP Matt Workman

Peppermint "Excuse My Beauty" Directed by Brendan Cochrane DP Matt Workman Production Manager Tracy Utley. A glamorous shoot at Splash and HK Lounge with less glamorous production obstacles but the crew delivered despite the schedule and fly decision making that is now common to the music video business. My second directorial foray and I am really looking to carve out some good work. Good work comes with a good crew and I could never do it without these guys. Big thanks to Peppermint, Tracy, Matt, Diana, Frank, Tony, Sorin, Julie, Roger and Nathan. Thanks to the Chinese manufacturers of the kick ass play back system that has wheels and a self contained battery that charges and runs on an ipod - technology man!! RED soon to be replaced by a camera you buy from a vending machine.
