Rock N Roll (Official Music Video)

Director Chris Marrs Piliero had created a comic book style music video concept which required a Motherplucking “bear-shark” to battle his heroine and we were fortunate to be tapped! Beringar lost his head for Avril Lavigne in this totally fun project shot in the desert outside of Los Angeles with co-stars Danica McKellar and Billy Zane.

Roy Knyrim and his SOTA FX Studio created the practical shark head which was animation enhanced in post. Special thanks go to Chris and his team for one of my most memorable projects ever.

FUN FACT: Co-star Danica McKellar played Winnie Cooper in the well regarded “Wonder Years” with Fred Savage more than 30 years ago
