Curtis Eller’s American Circus inaugurates the studio for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest

It’s somehow fitting that our first production was about the last rites, as Curtis Eller brought his American Circus gang to the studio in January to shoot a video for their song “Busby Berkeley Funeral,” embedded below.

Directed by Jaybird O’Berski and photographed by Shadowbox’s Alex Maness, the video is an entry into NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest, which asks entrants to perform with a desk in the shot. It was rated by KITHFOLK as one of their 10 best entries to the contest.

(Alex also took the photo of Curtis to the right at Shadowbox.)
