Check out all of Joe’s videos, in chronological order

Change Of Heart

Joe’s first attempt at video. He had an idea to do something cool, but didn’t think it was possible with just a Sony Camcorder and a computer, so he opted for a standard ’80’s style music video. Joe Directed and Performed while Cyndie (his wife) acted as Camera Woman.

Nothin’ In Between

While editing the first video, Joe discovered that his original idea was possible. So he set out to create this second video. Not only did Joe act as Director and Performer, but he also played Camera Man. Watch carefully, every performer in this video is Joe. And check out the part at the end where Joe (the cowbell player) throws the cowbell to Joe (the singer).
