Fort Worth is a pretty bitchin’ town. In fact, it’s my favorite city in Texas (yeah, I said it, Austin). We seem to have the best of every world. From museums to bars to restaurants to the history and architecture, we have all the charm of a small town with all the conveniences of a big city. Even if you can’t find what you’re looking for, Dallas is only 30 minutes away.
The music scene in Fort Worth seems to never get the credit it deserves. After all we’re home to greats like Roger Miller, The Toadies, T-Bone Burnett, and Van Cliburn to name a few.
If you’re from Fort Worth, you’ve no doubt heard of Green River Ordinance. They’re arguably the most popular band from Fort Worth on the scene right now and it’s no accident. They are some of the most talented, nicest guy’s you’ll meet. Recently we had the opportunity to help on the set for their latest music video.
This was the first music video I’ve worked on and I really enjoyed it. We had a great space, great subjects, and two great directors (Eric Ryan Anderson and Andrew Shepherd). The best part for me was getting to light the band. Music videos allow for more dramatic light setups so we got to have some fun with the Arri kit. The video turned out amazing and I’m proud to say that we were able to help with it. Without further adieu, here is Green River Ordinance’s Heart of Me.
