These are snaps of behind the scenes during the MFLS 12 hour video shoot. It took a production crew of 6 to make this happen with most people volunteering their time. Oliver de Lantsheere and I produced this music video.We brainstormed a week before the shoot and a couple of days before the shoot I collected 50 vases, 2 wedding dresses, copious amounts of white fabric/lace, tables and chairs while Oliver filmed, crushed, froze, burned flowers I had gifted him. The night before we set up most of the backdrop at the Super Natural Factory in West Oakland. On Friday Feb 6 we began to unload at 3 pm. The party started with mimosas and snacks. Jalua and Donna spent hours on my make up and hair while Max, Noah and Oliver finished the set dressing. Max stepped in to finish off my recycled wedding dress and head piece and then at 8 pm I was ready to go on set. We began to discuss and improvise what I would do up there. We began rehearsing while Oliver continued to projection map and experiment with new images. Around 1 am, after many rehearsals, we began filming live takes. I was allowed to do everything except break the vases so I had to pretend that until the last take. At 330 am, hours later, excited, blistered and exhausted, we opened the last bottle of champagne, toasted to the fun and insanity that comes with being creative and then took the last take. This time I was allowed to break glass which was exhilarating except I kicked my shoe off half way through the take and the floor was covered in broken class so I had to hop on one foot for the dancing scene. We ended up prefering the last take, no edits, and chose it for the music video. Thanks to Oliver de Lantsheere, Jalua Dell, Max Neuman, Donna Wood and Noizy Ark for helping me make this happen!!!

All the Best,
Here’s a message from Renee Della Prade founder of the Calendar:
Dear friends and family and fans,
2014, what a year. I’ve had metaphorical flaming hoops to jump through, geysers to contain, and mountains to climb. I’ve realized that I can’t really handle the work-load, travel, and couch-surfing lifestyle which I adopted this year as a long-term plan. My body is starting to say, “Oh hell no! When do I get a break?” There is little rest for this ambitious, time-crunched Accordion Babe.
So, once again, I’m sending out an email to ask for your help. I have a huge stack of really sexy Accordion Babes Calendars standing by, and they need homes! This year’s calendar is the best one yet; the first year we’ve had a Brazilian artist (Adriana Sanchez); and the first time I get to collaborate with a celebrated fantasy novelist (Peter S. Beagle) to produce a song together for the album. The calendar is also very sleek-looking because it’s ad-free this year. I love the CD and I love our art.
The 2015 Accordion Babes Calendar release got delayed for a number of reasons this year; but what’s bad for me is good for you because I am having an AWESOME HOLIDAY SALE which is going to last through December 25th. You can take advantage of great wholesale prices; and you can give the gift of Accordion Babes to your nearest and dearest. (Please order ASAP to ensure your delivery in time for Christmas; the post office is always slower this time of year.)
5 copies = $60 ($12 each)
