A Silver Look With An Aluminum Foil Budget

As The Joans continue to explore the world of visual imagery and plan for our inevitable first video, we often wonder how it will look when it's all done. We don't have the biggest budget in the world, after all, but we want it to look professional and nice...

However, I recently discovered that you CAN be glamorous and sexy on a budget. Witness this gem from 1976:

It's amazing what one can do with some strategically placed Christmas tree lights and tinsel, one camera and a video screen splitter.

I'm sure the Joans Video will be fabulous. I loved the picture in the last Blogpost. You clean up very well and the gangster car fit the scene just right. You needed a Tommy Gun and a cigar! ed

The car was a lucky accident...the owner happened to be coming to see the show and he parked it right by the door. He graciously allowed us to hang all over it while Gary snapped pics.

The DVD of Milwaukee did turn out rather well...I can't post it on YouTube, because my computer can't do that, but they recorded everything--even the tornado siren interrupting us! So perhaps a clip of one of the songs from that performance will end up in the video. We shall see...
