WINNER "BEST NEW VIDEO" 2017 Oregon Independent Film Festival-3RD win for Saint Sebastian's music vi

This Oregon Independent Film Festival award, for Best New Video 2017, for the music video and song DOWN, is Saint Sebastian's 3rd win in the film festival circuit.  With 15 more entries, and 4 "in-consideration" at this time.  It's an exciting time for Saint Sebastian as they are in the final stages of finishing their first EP, Melancholy Breakdown. Last minute production additions such as cello and guitar, and playing around with vocal layering instead of using synths.  Plus mixing has begun.

Winning The Oregon Independent Film Festival means a lot and is a major achievement for the band, write Greg Goebelt and the director, Sean Marc Nipper.  Greg has begun writing the 2nd video and is creating the storyboard and concept (more on that later).

Award ceremonies for the Klamath Film Festival and The Oregon Independent Film Festival are in mid to late September.


Thank you to cast, crew, band, and all involved in making this video such a success!

Music Video "DOWN" is doing very well on the Film Festival circuit

Written in 2015 this song & video (2016), "DOWN" is current with its "Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down," shout out at the end of the bridge, reflecting the struggle that's now depicted in Margaret Atwood's book and the new #Hulu Series The Handmaids Tale. The band Saint Sebastian, and #songwriter & #vocalist Greg Goebelt got the quote from its original phrase during WW 1.

It's a quote that's moved around and has been used in different countries for years. Winner of the MEDFF film festival "Best Music Video" and just selected for the 2017 #Coventry LGBTQ Film Festival. This is a preview of Saint Sebastian's up incoming EP "MELANCHOLY BREAKDOWN" due later this year. DOWN is available now on iTunes
