Sometimes you get lucky and the right people and circumstances converge and the magic happens. Sunday the 18th was one of those days. I had the incredible good fortune of having an amazing cast anchored by the one and only Patton Oswalt and a crew of some of the best and coolest cats around come together to make a video for a new song, Cannonball. We shot it at LA Circus in Riverside, CA. The good folks there were gracious enough to let us come in and do our thing and in the process made us look like we spent a million bucks rather than the peanuts I had to throw at this. I can't wait to share the end result with you as soon as we have it ready to go. In the meantime, here's the snap of the day. More soon. CB
