The Wocko Sessions

This was a very interesting project to work on. In fact, this was probably the first video JAPES did before it was even named JAPES. I filmed all footage for this video two years ago. It originally consisted of a folk band plus Wocko playing their songs in a whole suite of studio recordings and also an intimate gig. As months went by and various factors got involved the footage got forgotten about.

Two years past and we now find a perfect reason to make it and the time to complete it. Unfortunately, due to logistical problems and time past, a lot of the footage was missing.

I was tasked with creating a memorable video dedication to Wocko, the recently retired groundskeeper. With what I had I created the video you see below. Enjoy.

I am pleased with the outcome of this video considering the time restraints and the unlucky circumstances of lost footage. Also would like to thank Jim for the opportunity to film my first film! And also I’d like to give a special thanks to Wocko who this is dedicated to.
