I’m excited! I think this is the best Magic Bullet yet! And I’m not just saying that cause I have a Black Magic Tales story titled “The Old Gang” and is illustrated by the amazing cartoonist Carolyn Belefski and is the very first ever full colored Black Magic Tales story. It’s also the closing story to Magic Bullet #9. No, I’m not just saying that. I’m also saying its the biggest Magic Bullet to date. Carolyn Belefski put together another amazing issue.- Joe Carabeo

HOUSE STUDIO DC / $5 MUSIC VIDEO presents LIMELIGHT episode 4: JOE CARABEO

It’s here! Check out my episode of LIMELIGHT.

Here’s the copy I’ve been posting everywhere with it…
Produced by House Studio and 5$ Music Video, check out a rare glimpse into the mind of Astray Productions and Curls Studio Director/Photographer/Writer Joe Carabeo. Not only that but it also features the amazing talents of model/stylist Carrie Cornwell / Carrie Jo - Official and make up work of Jessie Campbell / Jessie Campbell Mua

Share, Enjoy, Share your thoughts.

(Note: NONE of the photos shown are the final images from the shoot with Carrie Jo, THOSE FINISHED photos can be seen HERE)

My thoughts.
I dig it. You’re never too sure how these pieces are gonna ever come out, or how you’re gonna end up looking. Putting yourself in another producers hands is always a challenge. Cause at least for me I’m so used to being behind the camera and in the directors seat that it’s hard to let that go. We are where we are for a reason. But one thing I always say is, “How are you supposed to direct someone in front of the camera if you your self don’t know how it feels to be in front of the camera being directed”

Overall I enjoyed it. I was also battling my normal vocal issues, but it doesn’t show, at least until you read this and listen back. HA. Also, it was fun to bring out my Mr Bandit music gear. I did play music while on set, but it was wasn’t used, cause really, I don’t think it would have fit in the groove anyway. It was loud, graphic and haunting though. PLUS another interesting thing while on set was that while all my pedals were engaged and I stomped my trusty BOSS DD-5 delay, it started picking up a close by radio station and channeling it through my amp, and it came through crystal clear! BUT it meant I couldn’t do anything with that pedal. It was a bit of a downer, cause I was in the mood to jam with it and make space music. But its all good. Roll with the punches.

Hope you all enjoyed the LIMELIGHT episode and small rare peek into my brain.
