My Las Vegas Music Video!!!!!
Feb. 28, 2009


SO HERE'S THE SCOOP on my latest going ons. I just shot my first music video and it took us all to Las Vegas. My video is for an original song called "Violet Sky". The story of the song that lead the team of videographers and photographers to take on this project is very detailed but also not all so plainly put. In short, a young woman is swept up by a 2-sided guy who romantically takes her away but once headed south, there is a sudden and consistenly stronger change in the wind. As a violet sky meets her on an empty road, she is overwhelmed by the peaceful sensation it brings after having lived a day of no fear, pure desperation and absolutely no turning back.

Hannah Violet musicShooting the video was such an experience. It started with a 16 hour travel period just trying to get to Las Vegas. Luckily I had the company of my good friend and fellow musician, Jeremiah James. I am so glad he agreed to be in the video and portray someone very different from his own character. And thank you Jeremy for letting me kill you after you chased me down. I had to. He helped in many ways, especially in making the traveling and hard work with no sleep at all, actually fun. After meeting Sean Penn in the Las Angeles Airport, we landed in Vegas and instantly got ready for the shoot. It was -80 degrees, well a little warmer but I was in a dress and trying to look my best with rain and ostrich egg sized goosebumps . But man did we have a sweet car to drive. A 58 Pontiac StarChief convertable with hot red leather interior came with an Elvis cd in the cd player. Thank Joe for helping us decide. I knew you would pick the greatest car. We had the top down and my sister Sarah was driving. That hot blonde in a leather jacket and behind that pur, absolutely turned heads all day and night. Jeremy finally got to drive it for the video. We did several different scenes and eventually ended up on the strip of vegas driving with the top down and a camera planted on the front of the car. With the freezing Hannah Violet musicwind through my hair at 2am the next morning, Dave Williams, the head videographer was running down the blocks making sure is camera was ok and directing us. Jeremy and I have now been awake for over 48 hours but it was all worth it. Looking back I am full of gratitude and excitement. I was so blessed to see so many well respected professionals working so creatively and passionately on my video. On top of that they were so fun and very sweet holding the blanket for me between shots. Thanks guys. There was an awesome professional team behind the cameras who all came from philadelphia.

THE TEAM: My project director and photographer is Sarah DiCicco of Sarah DiCicco Photography, who made this all really happen in a matter of 10 minutes (two weeks before Vegas Time). Also Tony DiCicco of DiCicco Advertising Group kept us all sain and covered the areas of marketing, and photography. He also manages and designed my website. I love you both and never would have attempted this dream without either of you. You are both brilliant and inspiring. The next hugely important team member is the wonderful and highly acknowledged Videography director Dave Williams and his supportive, very creative and energetic crew Jordan Oplinger Matt Jeppsen, and Abad Rosa. All were a vital part of the project and I absolutely needed you all. Thank you.

Dave talked more about the shooting of the video in his blog. Further updates on the video and music will be posted asap in the next couple of months. We are still looking forward to the last shoot where we blow up a car. All of the pictures are by Sarah Dicicco Photography from the video shoots. The music is written by myself Hannah Violet and engineered and produced by Mike Myers, from Philadelphia. Thank you Mike for going head to head with me and staying in tune with what I was looking for. Your friendship and awesome beautiful talent continue to take my music to higher places. Thank you to Rhea Turningheart who designed and made me my turquiose cross necklace that I donft travel anywhere with out. She also beaded the guitar strap in the video. It is so awesome!

Thank you to my family and friends who truly support me and this project.
" love yous"!
