Director Danny Ocean Aims Far Beyond BET Uncut

Each Wednesday, Rocks Off arbitrarily appoints one lucky local performer or group "Artist of the Week," bestowing upon them all the fame and grandeur such a lofty title implies. Know a band or artist that isn't awful? Email their particulars to [email protected].

It's time for the Artist of the Week to expand its brand a bit.

We have all sorts of musicians in our cupboard - jazz singers, blues musicians, Spanish folk, rappers, erotic poets, Christian singers, all of it. One thing that we don't have, though, is someone to shoot our massive Artist of the Week-only mega music video we're filming soon (it'll be like "We Are The World," except with more breakdancing and cussing).

So we reached out to local director Danny Ocean, most famous for his work under the Evesborough Films tab that pops up on various videos and interviews, and asked him a few things. Keep it moving to read about Shawn Bradley, booty-popping on a handstand and the worst music video made since 2005.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
