I co-produced a live music takeaway show series called “Batcave Sessions.” It evolved as a video correspondent to the artist and band profiles written in the Artsweek section of UCSB’s campus newspaper, The Daily Nexus. The Nexus office had this fantastic dark room covered in chalk writing from journalists of the papers’ past. The dark room had been rendered obsolete since nowadays photos are digitalized onscreen, and so the Batcave sat unused for many years.
We thought it would be a good idea to throw bands and artists in there with a cameraman and see what happened. Here’s our session with alternative rockers The Crash Landings. Photo by Lorenzo Basilio, camera operation by Emily Rogers.
