MUSIC VIDEO PRODUCTION

The Animist name is most notable in the Carolina region for Music Video Production. Music Videos typically take 1-2 days to film and 1-2 weeks to edit. I have shot and directed many different genres and different styles of videos for local and regional musicians. Here are a few of the most notable Music Videos Directed, Shot and Edited by Ethan Neville.

BAND PERFORMANCE WITH CINEMATIC NARRATIVE

Feature 1

This film was shot in China Grove, Salisbury and on location at Catawba College starring Adam Corriher, Kurt Corriher and Raynie Mercer.  The film is about a man who struggled with addiction watching the last 24 hours of his life on a VHS, having to realize how the pain he inflicted on himself was also inflicted on others.
