I’m scouting locations for an upcoming music video, and I need your help!
I’m looking for working and operational factories, plants, and other manufacturing facilities in the Seattle, Portland, or the broader Southern California area in which to shoot a music video over the next few months. I want to see things actually being made.
If you have any tips on places in those areas wherein (1) stuff is currently being made and (2) I could possibly shoot a section of a music video, please please fill out the form below. I might email you to follow up with more questions, or just geek out about factories and industrial design.
I’m part of NERD FOLK MEGABOOTH with The Doubleclicks, Marian Call, and Alaska Robotics. There will be fabulous prizes! I personally love nothing more than sitting in a chair and watching the cosplayers on parade, so I’ll probably be parked there unless otherwise stated.
HERE IT IS OTHERWISE STATED:
Joseph Scrimshaw’s “Comedy Of Doom” panel show
Friday 1:10pm @ Hall B (608-609)
Late Night Nerds (SOLD THE HECK OUT)
Friday 10:30pm @ Raygun Lounge
501 E Pine St (just up the hill from the con)
I’m also trying a new thing for Emerald City, and if it works I’ll expand its use to other cons I do. We’ve all had the experience of being at a con and the data doesn’t work because all the smartphones in town are in the same building, right? And then cool impromptu stuff gets announced on Twitter and I miss it because I couldn’t get Twitter to load. At DragonCon this year I found a workaround, where I turned on SMS alerts for my twitter account, and subscribed just to the tweets of friends who were at the con. The data network was bogged down but the PCS network was fine.
So this year for ECCC I’m trying a service called Remind 101 (meant for teachers to text reminders to their students, but there’s nothing in the terms that says you HAVE to be a teacher) to send out a few text messages throughout the day when cool stuff happens. Maybe I’ll be invited on a panel last minute, or maybe I’ll do a ninja gig with my booth-mates – I don’t know yet! You can keep in the know by texting the phrase “@mollycon” to (425) 440-3209. At the end of the week the list will be wiped clean and I’ll never bug you again (unless you sign up for alerts for the next con).
I also spruced up my website!
I moved my domain to a newer better host, and moved from WordPress.com to WordPress.ORG. And if you’re reading this post right now, it means it worked! I’m particularly excited about the kitted out shows page.
NEW VIDEO! My first For Reals Music Video-type video!
This song’s an oldie but a goodie, called “The Year Of The Beard,” written for my (exceptionally beardly) friend Atom Moore‘s birthday a couple years ago.
He and Mikey Neumann helped me shoot this video during JoCo Cruise Crazy IV, and we enlisted the help of dozens of bearded individuals – who not only lent us use of their beards, but also sorted themselves into groups by beard shape, and then sorted themselves by height within the beard shape groups. Geeks! They are the best!
The end result is something that I am super proud of, because not only does it look pretty good, but I got to work with a lot of new and old friends and we had a great heap of fun making it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
I’m attending GeekGirlCon again this year, and (most excitingly) I forked over money to have a table! at a real con! It’s very exciting for me because it’s my first time officially Tabling At A Con and now I’m not afraid to fork over money for tables at other cons— and plan to do so soon! I actually have a form on this site where you can nominate a con (or any other venue) near you for having 100% more Molly Lewis at them in the future.
The Friday before GeekGirlCon kicks off, I’m also doing a show with The Doubleclicks at Wayward Coffeehouse (the only Whedonverse-themed coffee house as far as I know, though I’d love to hear if there are more). More info here.
I’ll also be at OryCon in Portland next month, more info on that later.
It’s been a productive couple of months. My secret(ish) Batcave shows in Seattle have been doing really well so far, and I’ve gotten a LOT of new songs out of them (which will probably be cobbled into an album by next summer). I wrote a song for Joseph Scrimshaw’s Flaw Fest kickstarter (which you can hear as part of his album) about issuing lethal karate chops to people’s butts.
EDIT: Oh, hullo, one more thing. On November 2nd (and maybe going into November 3rd a little, who knows,) I’ll be taking part in the Extra Life charity drive. I’ll be playing D&D with some friends, and your donation can actually help determine what my character will be, and how well I’ll do!
