Update 6/24

Posted June 24, 2011 by in Uncategorized

Hello from the 3rd floor.
It has been another crazy week here on the marketing floor. We have singles being added, EPKs being delivered, videos being shot, street week plans being formulated, etc etc.etc.  CRAZY.
I was in Atlanta over the weekend shooting the Downhere video shoot. It is such a cool concept that I can’t wait to see the edit. If you want to see a little behind the scenes and why a really out of tune piano never ceases to elicit a laugh, check out this video.
You should check out the Downhere EPK too. It is HERE.
Then on Tues & Weds I was in Indiana, PA shooting the video for “My Hope Is In You” from Aaron Shust. It looked beautiful. Should have it in the next week or so. Till then check out the EPK that tells the story of Aaron and the struggle he had with his son. Watch it HERE.
And while we are at it, check out the latest episode of CentricityU featuring everyone’s favorite Professor and the lovely Aaron Shust . Check it out HERE.
On to the updates…
