Nightflyer Releases First Video!

Image635697389975159661The Ohio band Nightflyer has completed their first professional video for the Hazel Dickens’ tune “Old River” off their recent CD, “RAIL, RIVER AND ROAD.”

It’s safe to say that it isn’t your average bluegrass video.

The video was filmed over two days along the banks of the Ohio River in the quaint little town of New Richmond, Ohio, just east of Cincinnati; and an additional day in a Northern Kentucky swimming pool.

Yes, swimming pool!

The underwater footage took a full day of submerged shooting to get just the right shots. Director/Editor Shanon Rice and videographer Matthew O’Pry flew in special under-water camera equipment from New York just for the shoot.
Scuba gear was also used so that videographers could remain submerged for long periods to capture the footage.

The project was a collaborative effort between the band and a talented new video production house, SNM Films, owned and operated by Rice and O’Pry. Rick Hayes, Nightflyer’s mandolinist, is working with Rice and O’Pry, providing some background music for a coal-mining short film they currently have in production.

Rick had this to say:
“All the guys thoroughly enjoyed the experience, are thrilled with the results and can’t wait to do the next one. We hope you enjoy it.”
