REV FOR A DAY! I Play The Officiant For A Wedding Ceremony Scene In The Upcoming Video For Train

Move over Reverand Ed Holt! Actually, my good friend, Ed, was kind enough to loan me his robe for this unbelievable video shoot on Treasure Island. I was lucky enough to be asked by my friend and local wedding designer, Michelle Barrionuevo-Mazzini (aka MB) of MB Wedding Designs & Events to play the part of the officiant for a wedding ceremony scene in the upcoming video for the band, Train. Michelle was hired for her wedding expertise and to design the Chapel at Treasure Island as the set. There was plenty of time to frolic backstage while we waited for production so MB and I posed for this shot in the cast room.

As if this scenario wasn't fun enough I quickly learned that the premise for the video story line was a take on a scene from the classic 1967 Dustin Hoffman film, The Graduate. This crew under the direction of famed rock video director, Bill Fishman was not fooling around. They even secured a red Alfa Romero just like the one in the original movie.

What a setting for the shoot and what an appropriate place for a Train video!

Train is based in San Francisco. This brand new video is for the title cut to their latest album, Save Me, San Francisco. I do not want to ruin the great surprise in the story line but I will give you a little hint with this photo of the bride and groom. I had an absolute blast working with Lauren Fletcher (left) and Katie Logan (right) as they paused for a moment here to take a break from long day of shooting.

As I said the video will be out soon so I am going to say no more. I will say goodbye for now with this shot of Rev. Carl and Pat Monahan of Train who played the starring role. Thanks Pat for letting us all in on your great nod to "The Graduate."


  1. Can't wait to see the video when it comes out! Fantastic :D
