Catching up: THE CHRISTMAS FLIP-FLOP
Boy oh boy do I love Christmas. It seems that every year I get to work on at least one cool project due to the enduring memories that people have of all those fantastic stop motion animated Rankin/Bass holiday specials of yesteryear. One person who cherishes those films is the uber-awesome Dan Finnerty, creator and lead singer of The Dan Band. You may have seen him performing in the hit films OLD SCHOOL or THE HANGOVER, or maybe seen him doing correspondent pieces for Jay Leno. If you've never seen him perform live, you're missing out:
Dan called up last November, acting on a recommendation from our good friends over at Santasia, to see if we could put together a video for Christmas. "THIS Christmas??" I asked, looking at the calendar. "Well, we'd actually need it like December 5th," Dan informed me. I love this business.
The project would be to create a music video for the song, "THE CHRISTMAS FLIP-FLOP" from Dan's spectacular holiday party album, "HO: A Dan Band Christmas".
It was a blast to create mini-version of Dan and his bandmates!
