Care for some whiskey? [Official Music Video]

 

A lot of love went into my very first music video. Love + the blood, sweat and tears of Hank Friedmann, director & animator extraordinaire. He built the sets, made the characters, animated and directed the video. Brilliant. I’m his #1 fan.

 

INTRODUCING 

Hank Friedmann – Director & Animator extraordinaire

Hank Friedmann was born in Long Beach, California on Super Bowl Sunday, 1985. Despite being born on Football’s holy day, he had neither the interest in nor the build for pursuing a career in sports. Instead, he became enraptured with the world of film and animation. 

Hank’s foray into the world of filmmaking began in elementary school as a ploy to get easy A’s, and in-so-doing set a new bar for book reports. Then, for his Bar Mitzvah, his parents bought him a top-of-the-line VHS camcorder, securing his place as the kid in the neighborhood with the video camera. 

As the years passed, Hank worked in sound on television & features, created the Transdimensional Short Film Festival, and produced and directed the UCLA sketch comedy program Fireside Chats. He currently works in commercial and music video editorial at Final Cut LA. He stand 5’10”, weighs 150 lbs., and is ready to take on Mr. T’s inspirational charge: to be somebody, rather than being somebody’s fool.

  1. I love the range of your voice; the way it dances is enticing and enchanting. The structure of your music interests me greatly. I can’t quite characterize it- and I adore things that transcend characterization; its has a mystique to it that draws forth one’s curiosity, like a tempting forest calling one in one knows not where- there is the promise of adventure and novelty.
    Thank you, Leerone.

    Blessings.
