After filming live music for the past three years, Austin Roa is set out to make an official music video before he graduates this May from the University of Texas at Austin. Through his many musician contacts, he was able to approach Oberhofer and pitch his idea for a music video. To his surprise, Oberhofer was very excited and has agreed to let Austin shoot the official music video that will be featured on the artist's Vevo page, as well all over his social media.

With the help of Austin's producer, Alec Ploof, the music video is now seeking to raise $2,500 to help cover the expenses in the cost of this production. By the artist's request, we are shooting on an original Super 8mm camera, in result, film processing/digitalization quickly adds up. The money will also help cover travel expenses, production design, and of course feeding our talented crew for their hard work.

 We figure you may want to listen to the song before we make it so you can love it as much as we do. So here you go! 

 

 Director - Austin Roa

Editor. Filmmaker. And lover of music. Austin Roa thrives for filming musicians and editing anything that tells a good story. From documenting a road journey of over 1,100 miles, to following bands all over SXSW, Austin will do whatever it takes to get backstage to get the perfect shot to tell the perfect story.

 Producer - Alec Ploof

Alec Ploof has been involved in the working film scene since he was 16 years old. While a state champion in film back in high school, he continues his film education at the University of Texas at Austin and plans to graduate May 2018. Alec has always leaned towards producing and is excited to make this music video a reality.

Director of Photography - Mariana Gonzalez

A 4th year film student at the University of Texas with a love for cinematography. Mariana is very experienced with analog formats such as 16mm and is excited to continue working in a world where film is not dead. Along with the numerous amounts of narrative experience Mariana has on her record, she is also very familiar with shooting music videos. After college Mariana plans to continue pursuing cinematography as well directing.

 

Risks and challenges

As you can imagine every production comes with it's own unique risks and challenges. We have plan B's in case of every event possible and we will not stop until this music video gets made. It's our dream and it's time to make it come true.
