It was clear upon my first listen of Trever Veilleux’s fantastic album, Professor T and the East Side Shredders, that PANGEA was the standout track. I knew Trever was keen to have a music video for the song. I also understood that doing this song justice would be a huge undertaking, simply because of the epic feel that the track conveys. I wanted the video to match the richness, scale and emotion of the song, while also showcasing the incredible live talent that makes up this Big Island band.  Planning the shoot for PANGEA began last August, with filming taking place over two nights at the University of Hawaii at Hilo in January. As with every shoot I’ve experienced in Hawaii, it was a complete blast of creativity and insanity, with so many memorable moments. I’ve been editing away steadily since February with things really coming together over the last month, strangely timed with the spectacular eruption of Kilauea.  We rented a house on Kapoho Bay while on the Big Island for the Pangea shoot. That property was covered by lava in June. My previous project on the Big Island was the film GREEN LAKE. The lake was evaporated by Pele a week prior. I’m still trying to make sense of it all, and knowing the beauty that has been erased in Puna is much to bear. I do know that PANGEA was a labor of love and I can’t thank everyone enough for their hard work and dedication to this project. I hope this video serves as a positive distraction to the hardship and heartbreak many are experiencing on the Big Island.
