The Project

We were hired on to produce a creative video to premiere the Portland artist, No1’s public debut as a local icon and experiential artist. We filmed the main video over the course of a few months and visited dozens of locations across Oregon to show a story of a zany TV avatar explore what it means to “Be Weird”. 

Our Approach

The project involved coordination of permits with city organizations, getting out on the river, tying into rooftops, and directing scenes with some Portland legends like the Unipiper and Darcelle. We started with some basic storyboard concepts and went through a few iterations of storyline before filming. We also helped produce the main song which features more than 30 translations of the phrase “Be Weird” in various languages.

The Result

“Bridge City Media has helped me immensely in not only capturing my ideas and bringing them to life, but also in conceptualizing and creating new ideas.

We filmed my first music video last year and I had an incredible time learning/creating with their team. We filmed at many diverse locations! I was able to convey my message about overcoming inner conflicts such as anxiety, depression, fear and doubt with our first video. I am looking forward to filming more with them this year!”
