Theoretics take over Seattle

Theoretics is an Emerald City gem like only Seattle seems to produce. Seven musicians trained in classical, jazz, funk, rock and hip-hop have combined to make an amazing sound.


“Higher” by Theoretics (directed by Garrett Gibbons)

Thematically, my main goal was to convey a feeling of ascension: visually, energetically and emotionally. During  the band sequences I move the camera upward, slowly from the start of the song (where the camera was on the ground) through the end where the camera was often soaring above the band members’ heads. The color palette starts cool and gradually gets warmer throughout the song. The dancers’ stories follow a similar theme, and their solos combine into an ideological improv session as the song reaches its climax climaxing with Brian Ung’s airborne power moves during the song’s final hits.

I knew that they would be dancing mostly during the chorus and final outtro but the exact pacing wasn’t set enough to give them musical cues to use for choreography.

Starting at 2pm at the Seattle Center House, Garrett Gibbons will be leading a shoot and discussion about better using the 60p function of recent DSLR cameras for slow-motion.

Our special guests will be breakdancers from the Flying Sneakers Cru, who are coming to battle and break it down so we can have some sweet footage.  Make sure to check out their performances and Garrett’s slow-motion work on the 7D in the Victor Shade “Soothsayer” music video.

Around 3pm at Seattle Center, Jake Chapman will lead a workshop on fashion and wedding photography, emphasizing fusion techniques unique to HDSLRs.  Jake’s one-light strobe photography is practical, versatile and gorgeous.

Bring your strobes, a flash trigger if you have one, or just a pair of listening ears. Your photography will improve as you work through lighting solutions with Jake and the group.
