One day. One song. One killer music video.

Tallgrass Pictures recently collaborated with musician and friend Joshua Danyel to create our very first music video for his song “Leave With Me”. With the vision of a Shakespearean world,our director and crew headed to Santa Barbara to make music video magic!

Santa Barbara High School (our musician’s alma mater) generously gave us access to their grand theater as well as their fantastical props, wardrobe & stellar fog machines. The team was armed and ready for the one day production! Our director JB along with Jordan, Keith & Josh crafted a Midsummer Night set better than we could have dreamed up. From sunrise until midnight, they captured ethereal images creating a visual story for Joshua's passionate song.

When they got back, it was our champion editors’ Nico & Gavin’s turn! Mixing together the images and sound, they finished the story in time for Josh’s album release party.

And now we’re so excited to hear that our music video has been selected to be screened at the inaugural San Diego Fall Film Festival! Cheers to a beautiful collaboration coming together on the silver screen.

Congratulations to Jennifer de Poyen!

Tallgrass’ UNDER MY ROOF has just been selected for the 2013 Oaxaca Film Festival!  Written by the lovely Jennifer de Poyen, UNDER MY ROOF is the story of a young boy who, with his father, builds a nuclear weapon in order to secede from the United States.  The screenplay is based on the satirical novel of the same name written by author Nick Mamatas.  Jen has created a messy dystopian future full of complex characters that will translate to the screen beautifully.

We’re so proud of what Jen has done and could not be more thrilled to have UNDER MY ROOF recognized by the Oaxaca Film Festival.  As this is Tallgrass' first feature, we're looking forward to the opportunity to meet potential collaborators for the project.

Check out our ‘Meet the Screenwriter’ segment and stay tuned for more information as we continue developing UNDER MY ROOF!
