Jeremy Clyde: Willow Weep for Me

The Chad and Jeremy tour scheduled in May 2015 was cut short by an emergency which left Chad unable to travel. Jeremy sang four songs on his own at the Cannery in North Las Vegas.

Chad has since had a successful knee replacement and we are all very happy for that.

This video was shot on my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with a 7.5mm F/3.5 fisheye lens and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 with effects created in Adobe After Effects.

Mike Pender’s Searchers: When You Walk In The Room

Through my work with Chad and Jeremy, I’ve been fortunate to know other artists from the 1960s. In March 2015, I joined several dates of the British Invasion Tour, which included the artists: Terry Sylvester, Mike Pender, Chad and Jeremy, Billy J Kramer, Denny Laine and Peter Asher.

Vlad and Jeremy Album Joke Poster

Vlad & Jeremy Album PosterAfter working with Rick Jones and Valerie Neale, friends of Chad and Jeremy’s, we began to joke about the (fictional) older, darker music group “Vlad and Jeremy”. Inspired by the album art Rick created, I developed a publicity poster for the album’s resurrection, complete with tracks spun-off from Chad and Jeremy hits. The poster was posted on Chad and Jeremy social media channels in time for Halloween 2014

The Bottom Drawer Sessions Website and Graphic Design

Bottom Drawer Sessions No 1

Bottom Drawer Sessions No 1

Jeremy Clyde, who Alma does ongoing work with in the context of Chad and Jeremy, approached her in February of 2014 to work collaboratively on the graphic design of his solo album project. After a few rounds of conceptual art based on the name he’d chosen, The Bottom Drawer Sessions, Alma created a simple line art sketch. That sketch became the cornerstone of the entire graphics and marketing package, including album art.

Given the scope of the music project – Jeremy is simultaneously creating in-studio music videos and producing album tracks – Alma began to construct a robust and modern website, capitalizing on responsive design in HTML5 and CSS3 and providing a more immersive experience.

Chad and Jeremy Artwork Restoration

The first task Alma undertook during her work with Chad and Jeremy was to restore a piece of vintage promotional artwork from a show in the mid-sixties.

The original artwork was not accessible and was scanned at a low resolution, the resulting image looked heavily distressed. Alma used what remained of the image and the promotional photos used by the original artist to restore the image and make it high resolution enough for use in promotional materials. At the request of Chad and Jeremy, Alma also removed the cigarette from Jeremy’s hand.

Alma created a cameo alternate logo without the filigree edging for use in smaller items.

Snell Wedding videos and DVD

Snell Wedding DVD Cover (Mockup)Alma had never shot video at a wedding before, so to be asked by her two close friends Courtney and Andy not only set a precedent, but it set goals at a very high level. Alma was present for much of their relationship, and she wanted to use this opportunity to show them how much they meant to her.

Alma used the video camera they received as a shower gift, so they could watch the footage and continue adding footage while on their honeymoon. This added an additional need for some speedy transferring of video during the reception, but Alma was able to give them the wonderful surprise of two short (snapshot) videos and a full DVD. Alma designed the DVD case to look like a feature film, complete with a plot, guided by the story of how they met and fell in love.

Always Productions Memorial DVD Slideshows

From 2008 to 2009, Alma worked with two local funeral homes to provide a simple photo restoration and display service for memorial services and funerals. Families who elected to use the service submitted photos in whatever form were available. She put them in to a high resolution digital format, restored photos with damage and created looping DVD slideshows. The DVDs were played on a large TV display in the back of the room. When put in to a computer, all images were available for download in their full-sized digital format.

When one of the funeral directors was celebrating a wedding anniversary, Alma coordinated with his children to make a DVD for their surprise party.
