Magical Mystery Kind …just for the fun of it
One of my closest friends growing up, Elissa Bogos, came out to visit a few weeks ago. Elissa currently lives and works out of Kabul, Afghanistan as a photographer/journalist/videographer. She is creating & documenting AMAZING subjects, which you can find in these well-known publications. You can see some of her video projects here. I’m endlessly impressed. Not only is she magical behind the camera, but also in front of it. I really was hoping to make a fun video starring Elissa and impulsively she found herself back in the U.S. and we found ourselves in Leadeville, CO. Together we made this music video just for fun (above) using music from Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros “40 Day Dream”. We drove around and filmed Elissa walking in & out of various scenes with random close ups of our surroundings. We had a lot of fun and I wish we could do more fun projects like this. We have a history of being impulsive, random, & innocently mischievous together.
