Chimaira Crown of Phantoms LIVE video
Screen Shot 2015-05-11 at 9.33.19 AM

I have been a fan of the metal band Chimaira since their first record “Pass out of Existence” on Roadrunner Records. Around Christmas time I was hired to shoot two videos for the band. This one was at their annual Chimaira Christmas show. I think it was their 13th year in a row for this. The decision wasn’t completely made at first that this was going to be the song chosen for the video, but luckily all the shooters had footage from it so I could put it together. I’m pretty darn happy with the results as a live vid. All of the footage was synced up to the studio recording which was quite a challenge. But since I am a musician myself, it had to be done. Unfortunately, the band broke up before this video was released. But it was received quite well by the global audience and blogs as a final farewell to the band. I was happy to be a part of their legacy.
