Meet Mighteor: Producer Kelly Lueke

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

Hi, I’m Kelly!  I do a lot of stuff, and most of it revolves around making things, so it only makes sense I have come on board with Mighteor to produce my little heart out.  I love the process of creating something from nothing, of pushing ideas into reality and dreaming up new ideas. I received a Media Studies degree from Ohio University  though I’m still trying to figure out what exactly that means. I spent a lot of those four years writing, playing shows with my band or curating the perfect playlist for my radio show.

Over the years, I’ve worked for talent agencies, advertising and digital media agencies and production companies. I’ve worked on shoots for local clients, popular YouTube channels and companies such as WalMart, Unilever and Coors. Aside from production, I have spent time casting, talent coordinating and conceptualizing/managing music video shoots and just about anything else pertaining to music. I’ve even supplied my voice to numerous commercial spots and web campaigns that have been featured on Huffington Post, CBS News, Outside Magazine and network and cable television.

I’m still making music, with my band South of France, which is the most frustrating and exciting thing I’ve ever done. Not only do I get to do what I love in front of thousands of people, but I have been able to travel around the country and share the stage with bands I love and admire. I also like to get way too into my dogs and conduct vegan cooking experiments in my kitchen.

FAVORITE INTERNET VIDEO RIGHT NOW:
This answer always changes, and sometimes I’m ashamed of my answers, but behold, Dave Grohl teaching lessons on hit writing:

 

WTF? Yes please.I’m also partial to compilations of dogs not being able to catch stuff and young kids not understanding old music.

WHAT MAKES A GREAT INTERNET VIDEO:
A quick grab of my attention, no matter how you grab it. If I’m not intrigued right away, there are billions of other videos I can choose from instead.

DREAM SHOOT LOCATION:
Ice caves are so unreal to me and could set so many moods – I would love to shoot in the Skaftafell ice cave in Iceland or the ice caves at Mount Rainier.

FAVORITE DIRECTOR:
I love love love Michel Gondry- he has a way of making me want to cry all the time, but in a really good way.  I feel like I’m in his brain when I watch his films and music videos.  Wes Anderson is a close second, for very similar reasons.

FAVORITE PIECE OF GEAR IN THE GEAR BAG:
Notebook/pen and my iPhone voice memos.
