Allow us to present this music film we put together for our friends in Portland’s Bombay Beach. We used motion graphics, rephotographed footage and original footage to create this beast—we hope it only serves to make the band that much more mysterious than their music…
Seattle area producer and musical collaborator Phinisey is striking out on his own and releasing solo music—doing Something New…starting with this music film we created for him. We wanted him to exist in a dreamy blank slate miasma of color about to take shape into “Something New”—like the dawn of the universe or the morning sky. It’s Phinisey’s heartfelt delivery, though, that makes the visuals pop!
We teamed up again with the beautiful V. Contreras on this single-take, dusky, beachy film for her song Burn.
Put us in a roller skating rink with cameras and we’re going to dive in quads first. The Moondoggies asked us to use the footage to put together a music film for their b-side Roll Away and we were happy to oblige.

Working with time-lapse footage, projections, a unique setting (the—possibly haunted—cavernous basement of Seattle’s legendary Moore Theater) and fractured editing, we created a music film that we think captures the “crazy” simmering within the song.
“I have this idea for a music film that involves kids riding around on bikes,” said Rockwell Powers. “I’m in!” said Peter. True story.
The air was charged. It was the Friday before Superbowl Sunday in Tacoma, Washington. After a victorious Stadium High School basketball game, Elk & Boar and friends took over the Stadium gymnasium where an all ages party ensued.
We’re proud to present the official music film we created for Elk & Boar’s “Ten Steps”—directed by our own Sarah in collaboration with Kirsten from Elk & Boar
