Friday 27.6.2014- Music Video Session, Kokkola, Finland
Having spent the whole week working hard on the re-recording of Ecliptica amongst other things, I spent the trainride to Kokkola listening to the radio edit of the video song in order not to look too lost when the cameras would be rolling. Before that I’d met up with Hurtsi our new drummer at the trainstation. Around noon we arrived in Kokkola and after a quick lunch we headed towards our location. Since we have no budget-money for doing this music video, we’re pretty much on our own so let’s see how that turns out. Personally I suck at doing video-stuff so I hope some of the other dudes are better at that and we can come up with something at least half-way decent.Be that as it may, I picked up a keyboard (a trusty old DX7) from my parents house to have something to play on the video ;-) We did the guitar,bass & keys parts first and then just after 1500 when Teemu our new singer came off work we did his parts. Being that this was the first time we all came together, we also took some promo pics before it was time to shoot Hurtsi playing the drums….and call it a day. More stories from tomorrow when we play my former hometown Kokkola with Sonata Arctica. As for today, I think the shooting went rather well, let’s see how it turns out….
