The Anderson Council ~ Dont You Think? ~ Music Video

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

New Brunswick, NJ has been a breeding ground for some amazing original music acts – and The Anderson Council is definitely high up on the list.  When the garage/psychedelic rock quartet needed a video to support their upcoming album release, they called on Ironbird Studios to direct the production.  The band wanted a high-energy video based around their quaint basement rehearsal space.  We made the most of the room through the use of colorful lighting and powerful camera angles and movement.   To heighten the visual energy, we intentionally broke continuity with a constant rotation of wardrobe changes.   Ironbird Studios had a great time working on this music video with The Anderson Council, and wishes them the best of luck with the album release.

Big Wake ~ Live at The Bitter End, NYC

Jersey City band Big Wake teamed up with Ironbird Studios once again to produce video for their debut show at The Bitter End.  The 3 camera production was edited and mixed by Angelo Ucciferri at Ironbird Studios.  The legendary venue is NYC’s longest running rock club – and provides multitrack recording services to the bands. This allows us to fine tune the mix during post production and provide a much better soundtrack than a standard soundboard feed.
