Band Mechanic is a simple idea – specializing in (but not limited to) filming live music and the creative moments and conversations that happen in between and during performance. As a life-long musician there have been many creative moments during writing, recording or performing where I wished someone was there to document! So many missed opportunities for great social media content. The difficulty in trying to capture these moments from the artists perspective is stressful and takes away from the magic and can often times seem pretentious – I know I’ve felt this way before trying to film myself doing promotional videos or vocal covers! This is why I’ve decided to create a simple package-based service to help build my creative brothers and sisters reach wider audiences by being the silent member, the documentarian.
As a fellow artist and musician, I understand the anxiety that surrounds being creative and performing. My job is to bring a calming and jovial presence to the process while staying out of your way so you can focus on being the bad ass that you are. I have seen and heard it all, so you don’t have to worry about me being a “square”. My goal is to capture the moment in a way that brings out the best of who you are and what you’re about!
