It seems like only yesterday, Bruce was filming Shelby Lynne record her Christmas album in Hollywood, CA. The album is printed and we received our advance copy a couple weeks ago when Bruce went out to shoot Shelby for a music video for "Why Didn't You Call Me" off her new album - a catchy tune. The Christmas album, "Merry Christmas!" includes some holiday classics as well as original Shelby Lynne recordings.
The music video, edited on Final Cut Pro, includes shots from our documentary - a little sneak peek of her tour performances and guest appearances- as well as the footage shot of Ms. Lynne in the desert. Soon to play on a network near you!
That's not all! Bruce just edited footage of her singing "O Holy Night" - on her new Christmas album- for Starbucks. Bruce has an amazing eye for capturing life as it happens. Though not meant to be a music video, the video speaks to the effect the actual room has on the recording! It was shot in the recording studio's bathroom!! He gets Lynne preparing and closes in as she soulfully pours herself into the music and her satisfaction of recording a perfect 'one-take'. In mixing the sound, he layers the original camera sound with the official song recording to produce a fuller, live rendition of the performance with the video. Great job, Bruce!
