Mad About The Boy
Ava Leigh music video
Produced by Streetgang Films
for Virgin Records

Bar-ish emoting for the shoot.

Okay, I was only a featured extra on this project, but it was my very first music video, and at my age, I thought all opportunity of appearing in one had passed me by. So, I gave it my all, I delved deep into my sense memory, developed my back story, motivation and immediate goal, and made a damned fine bartender, if I do say so myself.

Brit Ava Leigh prances coyly through a bar - restaurant, the Cafe Du Nord in San Francisco, to a ska beat, extolling the virtues of her boy and poetically expressing how she feels about him. "I love him, I love him, I love him, I love him, I love him."

the next shot.

Directed by Vincent Haycock, the shoot was upbeat, friendly, efficiently executed with lots and lots of professional equipment, crew and one mother Panavision 35 mm camera. I'm sure this will be another exquisite music video from Streetgang. Check out their web site for some finely shot videos.

I could easily do this again -- if asked. All us "atmospheric" people were made to feel very comfortable. There were endless craft table goodies, no attitude, fine company, and one 10 hour endless song to which I learned all the words. I love him, I love him, I love him.....

Check out the video by clicking the title, above. Don't blink or you'll miss me. Nonetheless, I repeat, I was a fine music video bartender!
