Thank You Nonpoint!

Nonpoint Video Shoot in Madison, WI

Last night, Nonpoint filmed the music video for one of their songs off their new self-titled album, "I Said It". When I arrived around 7:00 pm, there was already quite a line going and by the time they let us in (much later than expected), there was even more of a line. To film the video, they used the track playback and played the song a few times to get different shots and position people differently. At one point, Elias was down in the crowd and at another time, a bunch of people were invited on stage with them.

After listening to the same song repeatedly, it was awesome to hear that they were going to play us a few live songs for taking the time to come out. They played "Hands Off" and "What a Day" and even though the crowd was tired, sweaty, and drunk, there was still a ton of energy in the room. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I'm happy that I went down there on a Tuesday night.

So, I really just wanted to say thank you to Elias, Robb and all of Nonpoint for choosing Madison, WI to shoot this video. Madison loves you and we were honored that of all of the places to shoot this video, you chose to do it here. There was apparently even a mini pre-party going on in line (based on the pizza boxes and empty beer cans and cases).

Check out the interview that the 94.1 WJJO morning crew with Elias talking about the video shoot.

And don't forget to go to Band Camp on Saturday, July 28th to check out Nonpoint (and Korn and other great bands).
