Welcome to my world! My name is Jeff Southwick, and I am a teacher (23 years this year), a producer, a writer, a musician, a photographer, and a filmmaker. I am a lover of digital media. Film, photography, animation, and music production... if it involves a computer and creativity, I do it. The old adage, "Jack of all trades, master of none." is something I work hard everyday to prove wrong. I take great pride in advancing my repertoire of skills. From early days of four track tape recorders and 35mm film, I quickly realized the advantages of digital forms of these mediums. Below are some examples of my work. All the images and videos you see below are mine. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 623-203-0979 for more information about working with me.
Music & Music Video Production
A track I created that started from a simple group of samples and ended up as the largest recording I've had to date. The track features my student Maisy Nolan (see Arsonist's Lullaby below) and my school's choir. I set up recording sessions at multiple locations and brought everything back together at Singe Man Studios. ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS TRACK ARE BEING DONATED TO MY HOMETOWN OF DUNEDIN, Florida. They were hit hard by the hurricane Irma. "Let the music make us one!"
Creating a cover to such a great song as “Arsonist’s Lullaby” by Hozier was a challenge in and of itself. While I am sure that my vision and the metaphors I used throughout the video are probably nothing Andrew Hozier-Byrne had in mind when writing it; interpretation is the beauty of art in the end.
