Electric Six

Detroit’s Electric Six recruited Wieden + Kennedy’s Justin Lowe to direct and Jason Roark to shoot this clip for “Psychic Visions.” It crams [in] an ambitious amount of action—underwater fight scene, Singing in the Rainhomage, and more. Yes, that’s Chris Funk (of the Decemberists and Black Prairie) officiating the wedding. Yes, that’s local actress and choreographer Haley Talbot. Yes, that’s the Someday Lounge and Holocene. Yes, that’s Paws Aquatics, the doggie swim center. Wait, we have a doggie swim center?”

– Portland Mercury’s Ned Lannamann on the music video for Electric Six’s “Psychic Visions”

Duran Duran

“Very well cast and executed – and holds up to repeated viewing!” – Duran Duran on the Runway Runaway contest video directed by Justin Lowe

“It’s an awesome piece of art and the story is fantastic. I hope you make more.”  – Portland’s Leigh Feldman of [LifeisaParty] on Runway Runaway

“No, Duran Duran have made no announcement of relocation plans to Portland, but director Justin J. Lowe‘s video for their song “Runway Runaway” was selected as a finalist in their contest (and was far superior to the winner) to create the song’s official video. I appreciate not only the novel take on the song’s story, but the video also taps into the wonderfully magical thinking children are capable of.” – from Dave Cusick’s Favorite Music Videos of 2011 via OPB
