This summer has already been filled with so many exciting projects, but so far this one tops them all. We finally got to shoot the music video for Forever Young, Acoustic Pursuit's first original song. After weeks of storyboarding and brainstorming, contacting actors, shopping for props and scouting locations... Christian and the crew; Brianna, Dave, Kristen, Clay and Zach spent two days filming.
We started at the Lehigh University Library where we began the story of the young couple meeting for the first time. It was such an awesome location! The rows and rows of books and the architecture gave it so much character. After that we went off to Cedar Beach Park in Allentown to film where the couple had their first date. This park is actually one of our favorite places to take engagement photos. It's filled with weeping willows and a pretty creek. Such a sweet and intimate spot. Our last location was the Spot ice cream stand in Bethlehem, here the couple had their first kiss. Once we had the main scenes at the main locations filmed, we filmed a few shots of Mary and Alex in their home to tie together the beginning and the end of the story with the older couple. Then we also did some driving shots with the Hornet down some back roads in Bethlehem. We got to use our new drone too! It was so much fun!
Although there was soooo much planning that went into this, and it was a lot of work behind the scenes... Prevailed Studios is excited to work on more music video productions like this in the future. We just love to tell stories. We really are so thankful to all of those who contributed to this project. Best of luck to Acoustic Pursuit! This is just the beginning for them. Be sure to follow them on social media, subscribe to their Youtube channel, and purchase their song on iTunes! Check out some behind the scenes photos below.

July 3, 2017 - The Acoustic Pursuit Release Event
After the video was complete, and we spent weeks editing, color correcting, and making final cuts, the video was ready to be released! However... we couldn't just put it on Youtube! So Acoustic Pursuit hosted a release party here in Bethlehem where fans, friends, and family could get an exclusive first look at their new music video. Well the turn out was overwhelming! Prevailed Studios designed some merchandise to be sold at the event too! People loved it! Acoustic Pursuit even played an short setlist featuring some of their new original music.
