When Covid-19 took over the world, and the entertainment industry came to a screeching halt, my co-workers and I found ourselves not only out of work, but missing the shows we did… the satisfaction in the entertainment that we brought to people.
In March, Jeff Cranfill at Special Event Services began hosting a live show, The Gray Room Sessions, which gave local singer-songwriters and folk musicians an opportunity to perform their original music in front of a beautiful brick wall in the SES warehouse – all for the benefit of the Musicares charity and tips payable to the artists via Venmo or CashApp. I got involved with the project a month or so in once he had enough content for me to edit, and a desire for custom motion graphics.
For our second season we went bigger. More Video wall, more lights, more artists, and more cameras. It was a blast having all these talented artists in the warehouse to record. Check out the work we did at The Clubhouse YouTube Channel here!
We were also able to partner with Push Collective and host a number of their artists on our second day of recording.
