CREATIVE MUSIC VIDEOS

Carolyn Sills Combo • "Big Canoe" [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]
A slapstick tale of a band on the run inspired by the silent cinema humor of Charlie Chaplin & Buster Keaton, this song was an instant favorite after being recorded at Gadgetbox for Carolyn Sills Combo's 2016 release, "Dime Stories Vol. 2."  Directed by Shawheen Keyani. Filmed and Edited by Andy Zenczak. Production assistance and logistics by Ellie Stayner. Shot on location at Wilder Ranch State Park, Santa Cruz.

Kathleen Murray • "Fallen Branches" [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]
Songwriter Kathleen Murray had some very clear ideas on how she wanted to showcase this intimate and introspective song about finding one's self.  After an intense preproduction storyboarding process and numerous location scoutings around Santa Cruz county, we shot Fallen Branches in five different sunrise/sunset sessions over the summer of 2014.  Produced/directed by Andy Zenczak and Kathleen Murray. DP: Julian Faras.  Additional cinematography: Andy Zenczak.  Edited by Julian Faras and Andy Zenczak. Preproduction artwork/AD: Jason Hatfield. Assisted by Collin Atkinson. Starring Maddie Hill. From the 2014 album "Woodland Voices" by Kathleen Murray. Produced by Andy Zenczak.

Tammi Brown • "That's How It Goes" [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]
Vocalist/Songwriter Tammi Brown had a vision of relating the memories of several poignant moments of her life through the lyrics of her song "That's How It Goes"- the Gadgetbox crew worked with her to explore these moments and weave them into an unforgettable video for this fantastic original song featuring pianist Tom Schumann of Spyro Gyra.  Produced by Tammi Brown and Andy Zenczak. Directed and edited by George Chadwick. Cinematographers: Eric Ressler, Andy Zenczak, Scott Haupenthal, George Chadwick, Patrick Brede.

Coffis Brothers • "Trouble Town" [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]
Filmed on location at the band's rehearsal room, the Coffis Brothers requested a simple, 'down-to-earth' rendition of them performing the lead track from their 2014 release "Wrong Side of the Road".  Cinematography by Andy Zenczak and Julian Faras. Editing by Julian Faras.

Project Pete Ford • "One Love"  [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]
Songwriter Pete Ford approached us with the basic idea of his song "One Love" - and how he wanted to share it with the world.  By handling the logistics and defining the vision of the meaning of the song, the Gadgetbox team brought the meaning of the song to life.
Shot and recorded on location at St. Joseph's Cathedral Basilica, San Jose, CA. Directed by Andy Zenczak. Cinematography by Julian Faras, Patrick Brede and Andy Zenczak.  Editing by Julian Faras.

People of the Sun • "Red Sun" [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]
Powerful psychedlic progressive rock music needs a powerful psychedelic music video that blows your mind and rocks your world. Sit back and strap in. Filmed and edited by Shawheen Keyani.

Angela Brito • "Barco Negro"  [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO] Portuguese folk singer Angela Brito's modernized interpretation of a classic tragic Fado song. Shot in two sessions during fall of 2013, the video ties together stories of love (shot at the Boom Boom Room in San Francisco) and a tale of tragedy (shot on the beach near Pescadero, CA,).
