Hey fine folks. Check out the making-of-video for the Son Lux album. What an amazing project to be a part of!!!
NPR* has just officially released The Making of Son Lux’s ‘We Are Rising’ Artwork video on their All Songs Considered page. As I mentioned before we did the entire project in 28 hours (actually a little under) and this video shows the whole process: buying the fireworks, building the set, the photo shoot, and then the full time-lapsed design and layout process, complete with Skype video-chats with Ryan in New York.
It was shot and edited by Michael Chiarelli, who’s one of my favorite editors, and we are so happy with it. It was such a fun, elaborate, and beautiful process. Hope you enjoy this little glimpse behind the scenes.
It’s worth watching full-screen, and—not to be presumptuous—but if you’ve got some headphones nearby, why not put those on as well :)
*I’ve gotta say that being featured on NPR has actually been a life-long dream. Some people might want their work in Rolling Stone or something like that, but for me, it’s always been NPR.
