Best of 2009 Video Productions

As 2009 comes to a close I want to reflect on what a great year we had at Big Box Pro Video Productions.  We loved working with all the new newly weds and all of our corporate clients.

Here is a short list of some of my favorite videos from the 2009 production year.

Use Somebody, Kings of Leon Cover Video, Like Paramore

hanks to all of our viewers on day one. After launching our video “Use Somebody” we have had some great results. In-fact, we were blown away by over 200 views in the first 20 hours.

Here are some of the comments from YouTube
Wow! Great vocals and audio mix.
I also like the single lighting source – makes it very dramatic

Absolutely better than any other cover out there.

Amazing…… love it, love it LOVE IT!!!

Sharon, Eric, Tony, and Tim — You guys did a wonderful job!!!! Time for a reunion show!!!!

What a great take on this song! Absolutely love the cover version of Kins of Leon.

Basically what we are hearing is that people are liking this video better than the Paramore version of Use Somebody done at the BBC. We hope that is true, but that is not what we were going for. We produced this music video for a good friend of ours. Her name is Kim. Due to a medical condition Kim’s life had dramatically changed. So for her 35th birthday she requested that Eric and Sharon Burriola make a video similar to the Paramore video of them covering Kings of Leon’s song Use Somebody.
It can be viewed here:

We recorded this in a few separate locations. Most of the audio recording was done at Metropolis Recording Studios in Corpus Christi, Texas. Various other tracks were recorded in Denver, Colorado and some at Big Box Pro in Corpus Christi. The video was shot at the studios here at Big Box Pro. Oh, except for the drums, Tim Husmann tracked those in Denver. We tried to get as many members of our old band, UPC, involved as possible. We missed Rich Caldwell so Eric had to double up on his duties and play the lead and rhythm guitar parts. Tony Valdez paid us a visit from Austin so he could put his special touch on the bass parts. As always Sharon owned this song when it was all said and done.

Once audio tracking was complete, the files were FTPed up to Jacket Weather studios so David Dreesen could put his special touch on it. He did a wonderful job on the mix and master. At first I thought the mix was too much, too many effects for my likings, but once it settled in I’m really starting to love the mix David put on it.

We hope you enjoy the video as much at we enjoined making it. And for those of you who would like to know… yes, Kim absolutely loved her birthday present. I had a blast working with the old UPC band-mates. We will be working on some other tracks soon.

Use Somebody, Kings of Leon Cover, Paramore-ish Music video

This was produced as a birthday present for a dear friend of ours.

Our friend, Kim, liked what Paramore had done to the Kings of Leon’s song “Use Somebody” so she asked Eric and Sharon to make a video for that song. They contacted me and asked if I was up for it. I told them, “I’m all in!” Over three weeks we worked on this project in our off time, which seemed like the planets had to align just properly for that to happen.

Along with myself, Sharon, and Eric we had help from Tim Husmann, and Tony Valdez. These two were old band mates when we were know as UPC (disbanded in 1999).

Most of the audio recording was done at Michael Funtes’, Metropolis Recording Studios, and at Big Box Pro Video Productions. Tim was able to cut his audio and drums in Denver. Most of the other video was shot in studio at Big Box Pro.

Nolte Farms Wedding Highlight

Chaliis and Jason had an enchanting wedding at Nolte Farms in Seguin, Texas. Chaliis was very involved in every detail of her wedding planning. She designed her dress, bouquet, the bird nest that held the rings, and countless other elements which all came together beautifully. We are pleased and honored to be able to preserve the memories of this most important day for this great couple.
