NIN – 20 Ghosts III

With the release of the new NIN CD(s) comes the Nine Inch Nails Ghosts Film Festival. You can read/hear about the announcement here. I’m sure I was one of the first million to buy the new CD online, (only $5!), and it’s quite a collection. So when I heard about the open call for videos, well, I just jumped on that!
Together with Nina McEvoy and Raquel Nevado we set out to make something powerful, something that could breath life into the music. Also, keep it simple was also the goal. So with Nina and Raquel laying naked on my lighting table with pieces of machinery between them, well, what could be more effective!
In order to keep the video as with the realm of copyrights as possible, the original footage is helped along with various film clips from 1897 – 1902.
Full video can be viewed HERE. And feel free to comment or rate it.

Sound – Part One.

2034396669_92ee5ac63f_f.jpgThis set of pictures is the first in a two part series shot back in January of 2007 with Lindsay Ferguson. Lindsay and I had been trying to find a break in our schedules for what seemed like years. So we finally just said “let’s spend the day together out in the country!”. What we didn’t plan for was the amazingly warm weather. So we wondered around the beautiful town of Wakefield Quebec for the afternoon shooting all over the place. In front of the lake, around the Mill, etc. So many amazing locations. We cut it short to head back to a house she was babysitting to relax and eat. Nothing makes food taste better than working in the country! We had a spontaneous idea to do a Lindsay Unplugged video. So Lindsay grabs her guitar, I grab my video camera, and we shoot this video here.
Then we head into the bathroom to take some shoots of Lindsay that people weren’t expecting. In the bath! Is she nude? I’ll never tell! heh.
So head on over HERE to check out the full set of part one pictures.
And on a side note, seeing pictures of the gorgeous Lindsay is one thing, but you just have to hear her incredible voice and music to really appreciate the wonder of Lindsay. She’s just released her first full length Album, so you can either go to her web site and check out some tracks, or go to the iTunes Store for previews.
And of course it’s available on iTunes HERE.

Best of Ottawa Readers Poll 2007

The Ottawa Xpress has finally acknowledged the existence of a much ignored musician here in Canada’s capital, by including Lindsay Ferguson in their “Best of 2007 Ottawa” Survey!!
There are a couple of Categories that I think Lindsay’s new Album ‘Sound‘ should have been included in & they are as follows: Best Rock/Pop/Dance/Other Album & Best New Musical Artist or Group. I know she’s not “new” but she sort of is, now that Lindsay has her new album ‘Sound‘ out people are starting to create a buzz!!
Also there is a “Best Live Show in 2007″ category & seeing as Lindsay had a record-breaking attendance for her Cd Release Party, I thought it too could be classified as a “Best of”…
The one that Lindsay is up for is “Best Folk/Country Album” so be sure to check her name on that one.
Another close friend of mine, Rob Mclennan is also up for a ‘Best of…” for his writing in the fiction/non-fiction/poetry work.
All of the categories have an “other” box, where I suggest you fill in whenever necessary.
SO! lets get Lindsay Ferguson on the map in the “BEST OF 2007″ for the Ottawa Xpress!
And yes, many thanks in advance for taking the time to fill the survey out.
Please continue…

Lindsay’s new Album “Sound” is available on iTunes.
Rob’s writings can found on Chaudere Books.
