Star The Moonlight Music Video

Check out the new music video for 'Good Fight' from Brooklyn-based band Star The Moonlight. Directed by Julia Barrett-Mitchell, 'Good Fight' is a multi-media collaboration from several artists including myself. I shot several scenes on the iPhone 7 Plus in 1080p 120fps slo-mo and compiled the spaceship-in-flight scenes using some still stock photos which were then animated in the Plotagaph app on iOS, imported in to Apple Final Cut X where clear-cut stills of the spaceship were added and animated, and finally some engine trails were rendered in Apple Motion and exported at 4K.

David Bridie "WAKE" album out now

David Bridie's new album "Wake" is out now.
I was lucky enough to contribute some synth/keyboards to a couple of tracks on this album.

David says:
“I wanted to forge my own direction on this record, write the best songs I could, joining together all the various influences, gathering together all the musicians I have an affinity with, to come up with something that I could say I was proud of” he says. “I needed to stop being distracted, to lose myself inside the process, and make the best record I could, a record of substance.”

Check out David on the "Wake" tour in Australia, June through August.
