When I read he a went from features back into music videos, I was very surprised. This guy had a passion for storytelling I thought. Then I watched all of them - and at first was so happy others thought his stuff was amazing too. He now gets millions of people watching his stuff. And no, his music videos aren't traditional. You rarely see someone singing. They are AMAZING short films and he did one after another after another. And his film THE BANG BANG BROKERS is scheduled for release at end of the year. Crazy Mr. Donihue, you never lost your heart and your stillaa fucking bad ass. Like, more badass now, than ever.
So apprently this micro budget big action film took him years to make but is now coming out. I saw a preview three months ago as part of a test he sent out to a few on his mailing list. It's mind blowingly smart, inspiring and hilarious. Here's the trailer:
Here's a few of his other short forms that have been released as music videos. The number of these is alarming. Some are tiny budgets but some look huge. I can't believe the rest of the world found the kid in the basements of sea town.
The video above is the best music video I have ever seen in my life. Seemed more like his early plays that THE BANG BANG BROKERS. Just really human stuff. So good.
Not long after he made a video called SOLDIER for Breathe Carolina and Blasterjaxx that takes on a topic that is very real today. Kelly Hughes interviewed Donihue for The Huffington Post.
