Footage Acquired!

Thanks to the incredible people at MTV/VH1 (Viacom), I now have footage of Brian Tichy “DrumBaggin'” on “That Metal Show”! This is exciting because, as far as any of us know, this is a very first time anything like this has been on National TV. Pretty darn cool.

The footage is outstanding in quality (was there ever a doubt?)…and again, I can’t thank all the people involved enough for their help in getting it to me in a format that I could use. They all went above & beyond. I mean really, I’m just a nobody indie filmmaker, they didn’t even have to answer my emails….but no, thier response was quick and more then helpful. It’s really nice to see this kind of personal service, and genuine care from such a large corporation. Kudos to all involved!

Now… the only bummer is that I can only use 30 seconds of the footage in the film. It’s enough (it will have to be) but damn, it sure is fun to watch Brian work the speed bag into the rhythm he’s playing on the drum kit…all at the same time. I’d post a still, but I’m not allowed to do that either as per our contract, so you’ll all just have to wait for the film to be released to see this awesomeness. That is unless you were watching the shows when they aired or have gone to the VH1 web site to replay them (do it!).

In the above episode you’ll see Alice Cooper watch in amazement as Brian blows his mind!

Here’s another:

I don’t know…maybe it’s just me, but this stuff brings a smile to my face. It’s great to see the speed bag starting to get the recognition that it deserves again. Back to the grind….. 🙂
