Florida Production Company Photographs Band: Come Back Alice

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

The Litewave Media team has had some great opportunities to work with musicians over the years– from filming with Grammy-Award-Winning jazz musician Chick Corea in our studio, to classic rock legends Foreigner, and the country chart-topping Band Perry, we’ve worked with a great variety of talent. We recently finished a pre-concert publicity video with No Limits, a dance video with hip-hop artist Isis Sonatra, and even our very own 60′s zombie-themed Tampa music video production.

But one band our Florida production company has partnered with on numerous occasions is Tampa Bay’s own Come Back Alice… and this week we got to do a photoshoot with them!

Come Back Alice formed in 2011 and have been performing live ever since. They love to be on stage and bring their funky rock style to every city they tour in. They’ve also been called “Tampa Bay’s Hottest Rock N Roll Band” by Advisor Magazine.

With the popularity of the band growing, they plan to expand into new markets this year. They enlisted Litewave Media for our photography and creative services. We photographed the rock band for their upcoming publicity and music releases and captured their unique, eclectic style right here in our Tampa photography studio.

Photographer and photo shoot director Christian Cashmir and our Tampa video production crew captured the photos using a variety of different lighting set-ups. Our team photographed the band with gear from our Tampa photography equipment rental package, including our Canon 5D MkIII, Canon L-Series Lenses (24mm L f/1.4 II, 50mm L f/1.2), and Profoto D2 photo strobes.

After the shoot, our team processed and re-touched the photos back in our Florida post production suite to match the band’s stylistic vision.

Music Video World Premier of Come Back Alice’s “Coraline”

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Our Tampa video production company had the pleasure of working with one of the most exciting live bands in the Southeast, Come Back Alice. The self-proclaimed Southern Gypsy Funk rockers had a distinct vision for their song Coraline: a Tim Burton-inspired dark mystical journey set in the late 1800′s. Our creative team was excited to write the script and turn the project into a reality with the band.

After completing the script, Litewave Media’s Tampa music video production crew scouted locations in the area. The historic Don Vicente Hotel in Ybor and Edward Medard Park in Plant City were selected as the shooting locations. These unique locales would bring the 19th century theme to life.

Filming took place over 2 days, in the hot Florida summer. All four band members, including lead guitarist/vocalist Tony Tyler, fiddle player/vocalist Dani Jaye, bassist Big Bad John, and drummer Yral Morris, made cameos in the video as a band of traveling gypsy musicians who the main character Coraline meets on her journey. Christian Cashmir, Florida music video director, led the Litewave Media video production team with a cast and crew of nearly 30 people.
