Music Biz Award Russ SolomonI had pleasure to put together a video to honor the late great and fabulous Russ Solomon, founder of Tower Records. Not only that but as he was inducted into the Music Biz Hall of Fame. I worked like a dog to get this job done. I only had 1 1/2 weeks to complete it. The script was already written and the photos were already picked out. My job was to record the voice over, edit the photos, add motion graphics, add music and bring it together into a mini documentary.

The video was shown at the Music Biz Award Ceremony in Nashville on May 17, 2018. Afterwards, Collin Hanks presented the Hall of Fame Award to Russ Solomon’s family.  So Awesome!!
