This summer I went to Nashville with Paul Shannon of
Real Arts Media to work on a tribute video to Chet Atkins and the 60th anniversary of Gretsch guitars.
We shot at the famous RCA Studio B and it was a real privilege to be there. Great people, from the artists to everyone involved behind the scenes.
A project I am very proud to have been a part of; many thanks to the always smiling
Joe Carducci of Gretsch!

I recorded the location dialog and music performances as well as the post audio mix. Hope you like it!
