Director Statement

This was the first episode of The Metronome, my Song Blog at YouTube. And since I'd made this song about autotune and pitch correction, I decided to work with an unusual and difficult to autotune co-star on my song and video - an actual ass!!! This was possibly one of the funniest and most difficult shoot CB and I have done, since its nearly impossible to actually "direct" a donkey :) And working with the kind of severely limited budgets we had, we could only afford one hour with the donkey!!! We were pretty happy with the end result :)
