I’ve recorded a new dinosaur music video. This time it’s for ‘Dino Blues’, a song describing a strange day when I woke up and there was a dinosaur at my door. It was my first pet dinosaur and it wasn’t long before it began tearing up the house.
To shoot the video I borrowed a dollhouse from the seven-year-old girl of one of my friends. They were going away on vacation to Thailand so I had plenty of time to play around with the dinosaurs in the dollhouse. But I procrastinated too long and one day I got a text message saying they were on their way home and that the girl wanted her dollhouse back right away. I only had about two hours to scramble, set everything up and shoot the video. I was angry with myself because I had imagined taking a whole day filming and doing it right. But then, my other videos for kids have been done very much on the spur of the moment and they turned out all right.
Anyway, I got all the scenes I wanted, but afterwards I was dissapointed to see that one of the best scenes I shot never got filmed. It was a brachiousaurs munching on a Christmas tree, flipping it over, banging a door open to reveal the terrified owner of the house and then just pulling the Christmas tree out of the door. I must have hit pause when I was supposed to hit the record button (it’s the same button). Well, well. That’s how it goes when you are making kids music videos Daddy Donut style. Just grab the camera and go! I hope to get some time to edit the music video for ‘Dino Blues’ soon. It’s gonna be so much fun and I can’t wait to let you kids watch it.
UPDATE! Here it is.
