After emerging from the Pacific Ocean, not only has Brother Octopus found love for music but discovered passion for the arts.
After growing up and discovering an irrefutable love for synthesizers, a man decides that "farm life" isn't for him. "Synth Cowboy" is all about how this man got to where he is today, and giving recognition to the things he gave up to pursue his passion.
My 15 years of experience in writing, directing, and producing mean I am able to approach any project with a professional, holistic vision.
I have been a huge fan of Brother Octopus for years now, and they have been incredibly supportive of my career in film. I want to take this opportunity to use my skills as a filmmaker to help tell their story and get their music to the masses, because I love it so much!
I love the idea of using this music video to really connect city and country. Too many of us city dwellers are ignorant of the impact local farms have on our lives, and we don't realize there are many farms run by millennials just like us.
This project, as with every project I lead, will be committed to giving opportunities to women in film.
Brother Octopus has been hugely supportive of my film work for years - from promoting what I do to letting me use their music in my work. I love that this project is an opportunity to use my skills to support their music and return the love. And I would love for this video to lead to more.
We're going to have a lot of fun playing with the juxtaposition between modern, electronic rock and cowboy culture in rural Alberta.
No, literally. We're taking Brother Octopus out into the country for a lot of amazing landscapes and fun music video adventures...
Our music video will be set primarily in and around this beautiful barn just outside of Edmonton. We can't wait to show you the atmosphere we create with lighting and set design on the inside.
We had such an amazing support system for nightwalk, our last STORYHIVE endeavour, and hope to continue building that audience and support with this music video project!
Director/Producer/Editor Andrea Beça is a social media strategist, confident that as a team, we will be able to reach many to gather support the creation of the Synth Cowboy music video.
Both Kissing Habit Films and Brother Octopus have separate fan bases that we know will unite to make this music video happen!
