Hey all. Things have been hectic in the best way possible as of late. I haven't been able to post much of what I'm up to on the blog but I saw this video today and thought it would be a good share. It's really refreshing to hear directors adapting to change and figuring out ways to work with it rather than against it. I love the positive vibe this video has. Not many people know the amount of work that goes into a video and not many know that most directors don't make hardly anything on music videos. We do it because we like them. It's a way to to express our art along with someone else's. My favorite quote from this video was "In New York, you take a wide shot and you have a billion dollars in the frame." Well spoken.Read More
A while back my buddy Scribes asked me to shoot some behind the scenes footage for a music video being directed by Jon Jon. They were working on several different concepts and ended up really featuring Scribes' unknown skills in the boxing gym. I had the opportunity to help shoot some of the music video as well and I'm really happy with how the shots look. Jon did a great job editing the whole project and making Scribes look like a young Balboa. We had a great boxing gym to work out of which had tons of character and all the tools necessary for a great video. I still need to get Scribes to teach me how to do the crossover with the jumprope. He's got it down!

That's right folks, we traveled back in time for this one. I've been working with OL' Small for over a year now and this marks our third project together. When we first met up he showed me this song and referred to it as "his baby". Well "his baby" is finally growing up! Here's a quick teaser of what's soon to come. Official Back the the Future music video dropping in October! How do you like these teasers? Are they too short? Too long? Just right?
I'm sure you've all seen the movie The Hurt Locker. If not, what you're about to see may not make much sense. I'm also sure most of you have seen the promo videos I've put together for Ripynt over the last six months promoting his two Ep's "On Second Thought" Vol 1 and 2. If not, you can watch them here and here. This is Ripynt's third EP release which
raps wraps up his 3 EP plan for 2011. All really solid projects and all FREE! You can download them here.
It's always a pleasure working with this dude because he's super open to my creative direction. He juiced up the dialogue while I focused on making this as Hollywood as possible and I think this is my favorite of the three.

Oh and if you can name the two people who are on the radios in the beginning, I'll hook you up with a framed surprise photo and a disposable camera! Go! I'll give you a hint, they both rap.
