Music Videos
When we said short shorts, we were surprised to see several music video entries, but happily surprised! These submissions ranged from animated to high art and showcase not only local filmmaking talent, but incredible local musical talent. These entries are a feast for the eyes and ears!

To see all the films, visit the Arts Council website. Here’s a sneak peek:

(I Wanna Meet) Bill Nye
Directed by Amanda Drewniak
Written/Performed by Jon Yoon

Amanda Drewniak is a multi-media artist, filmmaker, producer, and artistic curator, currently living in Seattle, Wa. She has artistic desire and passion, and an insatiable appetite to create.

Goon Years
Directed by Chris Mathews Jr
Performed by Light Thieves

Future Colors focuses on the conflicting ideas of living for the moment versus wondering what the future holds. In a narrative fashion, the lyrics are a reflection of life moving forward, whether or not we are ready for it. Channeling a harmonious sound somewhere in the realm of The Dirty Projectors, Chris Mathews Jr. brings an astral display of vibrant colors and dreamy swirls with the video for “Goon Years”. Perhaps because Mathews also is responsible for the recording and mixing of the newest LP, the visuals flow organically with the fluid, mellow and yet still effervescent quality of the music, in symbiosis with its lyrics: “A nest of dreaming fools, just leave me with my eyes closed.”

Night Walk
Directed by Neely Goniodsky
Written by Benjamin Verdouse
Produced by Brick Lane Records and Northwest Film Forum

‘Night Walk’ illustrates the innards of a relationship of a couple living in New York. This is a somewhat autobiographical piece for the songwriter Benjamin Verdouse. The storyline for the film is from his recent album The One and The Other, set to the sound track of ‘Night Walk’

Real Right Now
Directed and Produced by Sam Cahill
Written by Ryan Caraveo

Music Video directed by Sam Cahill for Ryan Caraveo’s song “Real Right Now” off the album “Maybe They Were Wrong”.  Director’s Satement:  “My goal with this music video was to give Ryan Caraveo a different look in the Hip-Hop industry. We really wanted to add an adventurous edge to this video and make it relatable to more people than your typical trapped out music video. It was a lot of fun to make (other than the rain) and hope that it brings in different eyes from all around.”
