CO-FOUNDER / PRODUCER / DIRECTOR / EDITOR / CAMERA / ART DIRECTOR
Sideshow Alley is an improvised live music video series bringing together the finest new and established artists and filmmakers at unexpected locations in New York City and Melbourne.
TYPE: MUSIC VIDEO SERIES PRODUCTION COMPANY: SIDESHOW ALLEY
We collaborate in alleyways and on rooftops, recording each artist performing one song, one take, with no fixed agenda and no rehearsal. By imposing location, time and technological restrictions this informal approach brings out a unique and honest take on each artists’ music.
Founded by myself, Dave Budge and Selwyn Cozens, the series collaborates with many talented filmmakers, photographers and sound engineers.
