Once in awhile we like to make videos in line with holidays that are approaching. We’re all in the mood, why not make a short about it? This year we had an idea ready to go since last April! When Phil was having lunch with our intern Sam, Sam shared a funny observation, as a drummer himself, that it’s not a romantic instrument that woo’s girls. (But I thought all girls wanted to date drummers!) Phil decided right there that we’d hold onto that idea for next Valentine’s (almost a whole year). And so that time has come!

We know we have a lot of musician fans out there, you think what the band mates said is accurate? Do you feel “obligated”? We’d just assume music is your default way to express feelings!

Enjoy the outtakes from the night. Everyone was so fun to work with!

Fun Facts:

  • The band’s garage belongs to a friend of Chris’ which fit perfect for the purposes of this short. We didn’t have to change a thing
  • All of AJ’s songs were improvised on the spot!
  • Almost 100 candles, 1000 rose petals, and 14 balloons were used for the “BE MY VALENTINE” scene
  • Angela is Sam’s real life girlfriend (awwwww!) This is both of their acting debuts!
  • Sam improvised his drum love song
  • Angela doesn’t actually know how to play the trombone… obviously.
  • Corridor Digital (Sam and Niko) are known online for their amazing special effects videos… yet this video had none, haha.
  • Sam and Niko are actually part of a band called “The Keep”. They’re awesome.
