Last week I headed to Chicago to hang with my buddy, Jimmie Deeghan, on the Bedroom to Stage Tour. As always, it was great catching up and capturing some songs. I ended up getting to know the Sparks The Rescue guys, and filmed a live session with them as well. If you get a chance, head out and support the tour!! They are killer musicians and even better dudes.
Happy New Years! I’m back, (alive) from the Every Avenue Last Call Tour. In all truth, this may have been my favorite tour I’ve ever been a part of. There are only a few times in life when friendships feel more like family, and this was the case with the EA guys. I really love those dudes, and I feel very honored to help send them off right. I can’t wait to show everyone the footage. In the meantime, here is my tour photo blog, part one. I’ll release part two next week. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@bryanbuchelt), this will be a repeat. Sorry bout that.
Also coming next week is the second song from the Rebel N’ Rose Snaproll Session. I think everyone will be really stoked on it. Have a great week!
Here is another long overdue hodgepodge post to catch everyone up on my recent adventures. While I’ve not done much filming in the last two months, (which has been a welcome break) I have able to spend a lot of time with old friends, and listen to a lot of killer music. That’s not to say there isn’t a lot on the calender. Expect some new project announcements very soon!

Ok, so this is my long overdue hodgepodge post. The last two months have been a complete blur. Here are just a few photographs from my adventures. I don’t normally caption pictures, but in this case I really need to.

There are certain milestones, or “bucket-list” items, that you don’t preemptively add to your list, simply because you didn’t realize they were even possible. This weekend can best be summed up like that. I flew out with MxPx, to New York and Philly, to celebrate the band’s 20th anniversary. I watched my music video playing on Times Square, (video to come), and to the cheers of fans, grinned as my 20th Anniversary doc was projected on a movie screen before the band took the stage. Both were so humbling, and moved me emotionally. I could literally write you 50 pages on how and why this band has impacted my life, but I’ll spare you. I’ll simply say that being a part of this band’s creative team over the last 3 years has been nothing short of an honor, and the only thing I cherish more than the music is the friendships.
I love when my friends are in town. It generally means I will get very little sleep, listen to a LOT of music, fly some airplanes, and have late night talks about our shared passion for the bands we grew up listening to. This week’s visit was no exception. I had a great time getting to know the guys in New Found Glory, Set Your Goals, and The Wonder Years, as well as catching up with the guys and crew in The Devil Wears Prada. I need a month of sleep to make up for it, but it was well worth it. As a bonus to this post, I’ve included a video I shot (on my iPhone 4S, ignore the quality) of New Found Glory performing My Friends Over You acoustic at the JBTV Studios.

I spent the last three days with the guys in Anberlin and crew. We had some great times bowling, flying airplanes, and discussing the finer points of Terrance Malick films. It provided a much needed mental break from editing. Expect some big news in the near future regarding the MxPx film!
