This past week, my dudes OPTION//CONTROL won a video contest to open for Maroon 5 this Sunday at Fair Saint Louis. After 50 bands entered their videos into the contest, Saw Her There was one of the top three chosen to play July 4th weekend.
The band even got a very sexy write up in the Saint Louis Post-Dispatch by writer Kevin C. Johnson. In it, lead singer Steven Thomas Neske talks about the experiences of making the Saw Her There video...directed by yours truly.
"The winning video was for Saw Her There. Neske calls the video, filmed ina downtown loft, simple in concept, but it allows people to see what OPTION//CONTROL looks and sounds like. 'We didn't want to be overcomplicated with a story line and actors and actresses, so we rounded up a handful of friends and shot a performance video of us performing in a party atmosphere,' he says."
