This is still one of my favorite videos. I’ll be honest and say that I’m not really that fond of travelling anywhere, but it was really great to talk with everyone involved. I have a lot of memories attached to Release the Bats (some good and some bad), and I’m glad I got a chance to try and document what it was really like.
This actually took a lot of time to edit together. I filmed the interview footage in May of 2018 and I didn’t release the video until October 2018. It’s always difficult to do these types of videos because I try to tell the history of the subject while also giving my impressions of social event. It’s not quite as straightforward as an album or book review.
I lived in Orange County for a number of years and you would always see those tiny flyers or posts online about Release the Bats. Your friend would call you up and ask if we were all going and how could you possibly say no? It’s weird that we can’t go to Bats anymore, but I’m glad that as of writing this post, Dave and Jenn are organizing other great events.
