Music Videography – Middle Class Ways – Johnno Casson
April 7, 2017 admin

Well that was unexpected.  A message out of the blue from an indie musician who has been on the periphery of a circle of mutual music/arts friends in Essex, asking me if I’d consider making a video for a track on his current album release.  The musician is Johnno Casson aka Snippet, and his album is called Future Melancholy Pop Music.  It is already attracting attention from BBC R6’s Tom Robinson, who has played a couple of tracks from it on his radio show, and has championed Johnno via his  Fresh On The Net independent music blog.

Having previously listened to Johnno’s music with interest, and really liking what I had heard, I considered the request to do the video for about 10 seconds before answering with a firm “YES”.  Just one problem; I had never done anything this involved with film-making before.  I did a stop frame animation a few years ago, featuring a PG Tips Monkey, but that was about the extent of it.  I’m not sure what Johnno felt qualified me enough for him to entrust me with creating a visual representation of his lovely song ‘Middle Class Ways’, but I was very happy to run with it so got my head down and kind of hoped for the best.

Here is the video, and, if you happen to be looking for something to do this Sunday (9th April 2017) then the album that this track is taken from is launched at The Minories in Colchester from 2pm, where Johnno will be performing some of the tracks live, along with a little help from his other musical friends.  It looks like it’s going to be a really good afternoon.   See you there, yeah?

Future Melancholy Pop Music is released today on Folkwit Records
