PROJECT: DAVID BARRETT TRIO – DIVE
WHAT WE DID:
coordinate logo animation
publish in various formats
Music videos are mostly vanity projects, let’s face it.
HotHouse Creative was engaged by David Barrett Trio to develop a music video for an upcoming album release. While not in the purview of big-budget popular music, this progressive rock power trio features sophisticated and prodigious playing that needed to come across to an audience. The multi-level recording includes mandolin and guitar playing simultaneously as well as detailed guitar solos and instrumental nuances from all three band members. Couple these items with a band that is debuting an album within an educated audience that has never heard of David Barrett Trio before. We decided that instead of being obsequiously artsy, we would show the band playing their song – almost plainly. The David Barrett Trio logo is very colourful and the decision to make the video quite jewel-toned was very deliberate.
Filmed on location in Galt, Ontario. David Barrett Trio is an instrumental progressive rock trio from Toronto Canada. Produced, directed, filmed and edited by Paul Reid, with the exceptional gaffer, Peter Genrick.
