I was invited to a fire spinning session recently at a local deserted warehouse. We didn’t have a lot of time to prep and shoot, but I was able to come away with some very reasonable footage of the fire performers.

It needed to be put to use somehow, so I asked the lovely and talented Wendy Scoggins to sing a version of I’m on Fire that I could mix in with the footage. We ended up shooting and recording the song over the course of an evening. I brought in my friend Will for the violin fills and recorded the rest myself.

Some time mixing, cutting and color-grading later, we have the finished video – FIRE.


Cindy of Cindy Chapter Photography  invited me in the first place and also came away with some great shots:
