Behind The Scene: Episode 004 – The Making of BLACKWATER DROWNING – “Violent Ends”

In our last episode of “The Making of Violent Ends”, we dive into the creative process behind the music video. Director/videographer James Geiser takes us deeper into his thought process as he created the structure for the video and how the vision came to life. We also hear from the voice behind the camera, Sabrina Lee, about her experience capturing the moments behind the scenes.

We hope that you have enjoyed this exclusive miniseries. A special thank you to Blackwater Drowning for allowing us to be a part of their first music video. The video was filmed at the historic Milestone in Charlotte, NC.
