Flash Action Films Returns! "Baby Libertine"

Good friend Stefan Sigerson of Flash Action Films has just completed his second video this month, this time for Secret Agent Records recording artists The Vampire Bats.  Having seen this one develop over that past few months it seems that S.J. Sigerson has outdone himself yet again.

In an homage to Edie Sedgwick, Stefan and Marc Godfrey (singer of the Vampire Bats, and also assistant editor on this video and well as Smoke and Choke by Combine the Victorious) have recreated several famous photos from the Andy Warhol days of Factory Studio, all cut together with some very glamorous images of the Vampire Bats performing with special guest Jordy Birch (Guilty About Girls).  Special mention must also go to Julia Mauro who is playing the Edie Sedgwick role in the video. 

I think it's safe to say that Stefan has added video director/editor to his resume: have a look! 
Baby Libertine.

Well you smoke and you choke on the air
and you laugh as you say you don't care
'cause we smile as you play with your hair
'cause you're doing your best

in the car that you park in the drive
and the job that you need to survive
in the friends that you've come to rely on
but you're doing your best

in the dirt in your hair and your eyes
and the sweat on your back and your thighs
and the way you tell truth from the lies
'cause you're doing your best

and this world that you hold in your mind
on whose back will your pyramids rise
by whose god will your fortunes divide
'cause you're doing your best

everybody's trying to do their own thing
but maybe we could do it better
instead of trying to figure it out on your own
we should put out heads together

Well you smoke and you choke on the air
and you laugh as you say you don't care
'cause we smile as you play with your hair
'cause you're doing your best
