Jeff Younger's Devil Loops

I'm doing my first live improvised visual performance with Jeff Younger and some amazing dancers and performers tomorrow night at the Orpheum Annex!

TICKETS HERE

I'll be playing with video from Ukraine, with live animation, and VJ-type live cams.  I feel like someone has taken a DJ and said "here's a guitar!" which is pretty fun but also terrifying.  Come see me triumph or crash!  It will be a great event!

The event is produced by the Railtown Cultural Eclective...

So a couple of great music videos I shot for the Loose Affiliation of Millionaires are now online!

I shot David Newberry and Jenny Ritter at the museum, singing songs that were inspired by the museum's collection.

I had a great time.  I love music vids because even after editing them over and over, I still feel like watching them again.

There's a live show with all the millionaires at the MOV this Saturday, February 1 at 7pm.  But meanwhile, you can listen to these...

Cleaning out the cupboards, I found this video of wacky musical genius Elliot... enjoy...

One of my missions in St John's was to record as much live music as possible, for sharing with my friends and colleagues and for possible use in a future video installation / exhibition.  After two visits to Newfoundland over the decades, the amount of live music was what stuck with me the most.  Like, without leaving downtown, I shot 9 bands in a week and a half.

There's something for everyone so by all means, skip through if something's not to your taste...

This is my new music video for Rodney Decroo!

A good review in the Georgia Straight:

"Let’s hope this collaboration between acclaimed (but not acclaimed enough) singer-songwriter Rodney DeCroo and filmmaker Flick Harrison isn’t the last. "

When I first heard this song, I thought it was a fictional story about Iraq. But it's actually the true story of Rodney's dad after the Vietnam war.

I used the Collateral Murder video as my model for this, and I suppose I was thinking of the video for Brothers In Arms by the Dire Straits as well.

Instead of linking the horrible video of a guy driving through Critical Mass in Brazil,

Here's a wicked counter-punch from the Wafalme kids in Nairobi.

I haven't posted this yet, so with their new CD release it's probably a good time.

Music Video for The Strange Magic, from their new album "Songs to Burn."

Shot at the Railway Club and Lamplighter Pub in Vancouver. The amazing archival footage comes from Archive.org.

Wreckless Eric reading from his book in Seattle.

I shot this for my upcoming W.E. concert video.

He sez: 'I didn't want to write a showbiz biography, the sort that chronicles the early struggle for fame, works through a successful middle period, and chronicles the downfall via a collection of lurid drug-related episodes and boring contractual details, finally fizzling out in a collection of lame anecdotes designed to demonstrate what a great guy I am now that life's being good to me and I'm on the straight and narrow. WH Smith is already full of crap like that.'
