First Punch Film Productions has been busy rolling tape the last few months (well, rolling digital data). The local film company releases two new videos tonight: one from local band Née and the other for Colombian rap group, Los Calvos. Filmed simultaneously in different parts of the world, the videos take radically contrasting approaches to the notion of music videos. The party kicks off at 9 p.m. at Nebula Coworking (3407 S. Jefferson Ave) with the first movie screening at 9:30.
Née's recent single release "Pretty Girls" translates into a video as a tribute to classic pop videos complete with choreographed dance and a wardrobe changing scene. "Pop videos do that [choreographed dance] and it's so produced and so slick. It's really funny but nobody ever has any humor in it," says Kristin Dennis, lead singer of the band. The video is mostly Dennis' brain child. She came to First Punch with the idea and they were able to make her vision a reality.
Update: After a triumphant debut for both videos, you can now view them right here from the comfort of your computer. The Los Calvos video is on this page and the Née clip is on page two.More »
