'The Italian Bus Ride' is a music video I created for the song 'Don't Play With Dinosaurs' performed by jazz band TickleJuice led by James Merenda, from their 2014 album 'Roots To The Stars.' The footage was taken on a bus ride through Italy, and the continuous motion matches well with the high-energy sound. Humorously, and unbeknownst to me, Merenda had previously scrawled notes about Italy on his original music sheets for this composition! Watch the video embedded below, or directly on Vimeo.
Last year I premiered this video as a projection on a gallery wall at the TickleJuice 'Roots To The Stars' CD Release party! Check out my post with photos to see more about the event, held at the Zullo Gallery for the Arts in Medfield, MA.
I also captured a lot of great images from this 'Italian Bus Ride,' and prints are available for purchase. See more on the 'Don't Play With Dinosaurs' project page!
