Acoustic Pursuit | "Forever Young" Music Video & Release Party

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.

Some custom t-shirts we designed for Acoustic Pursuit. The design features all the lyrics to "Forever Young".

 We also designed two different stickers to sell at the event. A basic logo sticker and one vintage design featuring the Hornet.

Acoustic Pursuit - Forever Young (Original Music Video)

Our first Photography workshop was a success!

Teaching has always been a passion for Christian and I. We knew right away when we started Prevailed Studios that we wanted to someday host a photography workshop to teach people the basics of photography and how to begin using their camera. Well, our first photography workshop took place last weekend and it was a hit! 

We created workbooks and taught everyone about aperture, shutter speed, ISO, composition and photo gear! Participants even got to work with a model, Kierrah to put their skills to the test at the end of the workshop. Christian and I felt like proud parents that day! Haha! It was so awesome to see that they actually learned something from our workshop. These ladies each have their own unique style of shooting and it's pretty stinkin' cool! Check out some behind the scenes shots and photos taken by some of our participants.

Thank you so much to Patti, Alex, Khadijah, Jollette and Kierrah! We're so glad you came!
