Once in a lifetime experience for the locals who were part of music video shoot
The rap band “Atmosphere,” based in Minneapolis, was in Houston County to film a video for their upcoming single “Seismic Waves” during this past week.
A production company hired by the band hired several locals who served as extras during the production of the music video, which was filmed in the historic jail.
An actress, who was chosen for the song, was portrayed trying to “escape from her vices, things like her cell phone and other things that dictate so much about our lives.”
Locals like Adam Forrester, a senior at Caledonia High School, were given the chance to learn first hand about the process.
Forrester got the gig thanks to his boss, Elsie Babler.
“It was awesome,” he said of the experience. “Some of the guys came in and she asked them what they were in town for and they told her they were shooting a music video,” he said. “She told them I’m really interested in film and music and a couple days later they called me and asked me if I would be a junior producer.”
