I have a bit of a problem falling asleep. Strangely enough it is when I can’t sleep that I tend to find most inspiration. I was up late and in the basement one night when I wrote ‘Fireflies’. I was sitting at the keyboard just fooling around, not really trying to write anything. Over the next couple of hours that song came together in the most natural way. I can’t explain it but it almost wrote itself. I didn’t have any idea that moment that I had written a hit. — Adam Young

Fireflies || Owl City

hello im @transcuber and i really hate to ask this and this sounds really pathetic but youtube has this new fucking annoying rule (starting yesterday, apparently) where you cant monetize your videos until you have 10,000 total views and i dont so im !! not making any fuckin money !!!! and it’s annoying as fuck because i need it !!!!!!!!!

so if you could please just watch my youtube videos thatd be great? theyre pretty satisfying i guess? plus there’s no ads! pls. it’s free to watch and maybe if you want you can also subscribe for more rubik’s cube and/or trans related videos? i upload the best quality videos i can!

theyre very short. like 3 minutes long.

Owl City - Fireflies Videoshoot

dannyyourd: Back in 2009 myself and @stevehvr were asked to shoot a music video for a song called Fireflies by a new artist at Universal Records who went by the name of Owl City. I had no clue who he was. We wrote a treatment and were awarded the job and somehow the video is currently nearing 200 million views. We went on to shoot for more videos with Owl City following this. The idea for Fireflies - the musician is playing in a bedroom set when all the toys start to come to life. Shopping for the art direction on this job was the most fun I’ve ever had gathering props. Armed with a decent prop budget we set out with our art director, Merissa Lombardo, and we hit up flea markets and toy stores to gather unique toys to add to the set. The photo you see of the back of a minivan is the result of one of those trips. We built a small bedroom set in the middle of a big sound stage in Pittsburgh, PA. Our friend Jay Morrisey took an old electric organ and rewired it so that when keys were hit, lights he installed on the top would light up. We had all hands on deck before each take. Everyone would run on to set winding up and turning on toys and then on action lay them down and run off set. My favorite part is when the blimp comes out of the closet. The closet went directly into the studio and the clothes were just hanging off a c-stand. We had someone from our crew back there just shoving the blimp into the set and Steve was controlling it with a remote. Movie magic. Ha.
