Wow, recently I was turned on to a great music video by some guy I had never heard of named “Chris Dane Owens“. A friend of mine sent me this video as a joke and I have to say it is pretty funny. But then I took a closer look at it and all of a sudden I was really into it and borderline obsessing over it. I watched the video over and over. The catchy faux funk baseline over some epic, drawn out guitar lines and vocal melodies had me hooked. But what had me more hooked was the story-line, A FANTASY ADVENTURE starring himself, a lady, a Dr. Doom type villain, several groups of 3 hot ladies, his knife throwing buddy, another buddy, an older buddy, and a fleet of fire welding dragons. Take a look for yourself.
This video now gets me all stoked like watching Lord of the Rings. But what can I say, I’m a sucker for fantasy adventure stories, especially when they involve medieval funk grooves. Who is this “Chris Dane Owens”? I did a little research and this is what I found out.
According to the IMDB, Mr. Owens is a 6’1″ tall Film Producer who has worked with such greats as Jonathan Silverman of Weekend at Bernie’s fame and Rue McClanahan who played the ever sassy Blanche Devereaux on the hit sitcom The Golden Girls. In addition to being a successful film producer, he co-owns a business, Biederman/Owens Television, which develops Reality Television concepts and has several projects in the works with large production companies such as Lions Gate Entertainment. He has a successful father as well, so it looks like he is doing good. More info is available on his IMDB Page.
So what do you do when you have some extra cash lying around and ravishing blue eyes, you make a fantasy based music video, that’s what you do. And it appears his experience as a producer has served him well. I would even consider this video a mini-movie more than just some boring ol’ music video. His full length album is called “Blue Stone”. Godspeed Adventurer Owens, Godspeed.
