We decided to push back the video shoot until the spring (April). A couple of reasons for this. This extra couple of months really gives us time to get feedback on the three songs so we can pick the single based on ears other than our own! (These tracks will also be going out to several of David's connections in the industry, as well as radio folks for their feedback.) Once the single is chosen it also allows for time to develop the creative concept for the video, scout locations, decide on wardrobe, and any further casting that might need to be done.
The general branding for this project (look and feel of my website, my bio video, and these first promotional photos), along with my logo should have a similar feel to the video, so knowing which song we're going to focus on will help to inform all of that. Also, Spring allows for many more possibilities for outside filming. In other words, we don't want to rush it, because it is so important to be coordinated and to do this right.
This process is slowing down the rewards to the KS Backers, but no one seems to mind. I keep them in the loop regularly, so I think that helps.
Can't wait to see what the KS Backers choose for the single. The 3 choices were Out Of Tune, Hair Down and In Your Love. My vote is Hair Down. It's hard to choose. This is what we call a good problem to have.
