What I've been up to lately...

Ayee hope y’all are doin’ good it’s been a minute since I’ve written a blog so I wanted to update you guys on what I’ve been up to as of late! First off if you haven’t seen my IG stories I got the chance to shoot with Adi Rei from Nvasion Records. Super dope artist to be able to link with he brought good vibes and energy on set and we killed it. We had a lot of things going on with 3 different set designs to shoot in the studio and a scene on top of a parking garage at golden hour and everything turned out really well. We pulled off the vibe we were going for with a high energetic, fun visual with bright blues and oranges to compliment the mood. Pre-Production was a b*tch it took me hours to build the stuff you see in the video lol.

Check out the screenshots below to see the kind of sets we built and and the overall vibe we were aimin’ for. This shoot was a blast hopefully you guys get to see more visuals from us on the future.

The following weekend I had another shoot with an artist named Congrez up in Cleveland just a little more on the west side this time. Congrez is also the CEO of Avalanche Records. This song included several other artists from the label including but not limited to, BamFranx, Jiggy Ju, and Tilla Duula. This visual was made with the idea of just making it look really f**king cool lol. It’s a flex track no doubt so we wanted a vibe that would represent that which ended up with some cool set design ideas that you guys can check out below.

Get Creative

Yo yooo hope y'all have been doing great and killin it at life lol. I just wanted to go over some things for the creatives today and talk about the importance of props and set design! Personally, I think building a set that's dedicated to the specific mood and feel that you're after can really be the home run of the whole visual. Taking the time to build props and pieces and go the extra mile to make everything stand out. Getting more involved in this part of the visual is something I've been trying to get better at and the only way you'll get better at it is by doing it.

With that being said I wanted to give you guys an example of what I mean. Currently, I'm working on ideas and plans for a music video shoot in the future. I decided to take it upon myself to build my own props because I had some really creative ideas I thought would match the song.

Let's Go...

Yoo how's it goin guys!? I hope you're all doing fantastic lol. I haven't jumped on here in a minute and I have some things I would like to share with you 👌. Lately I haven't really been feeling too inspired with creating. I feel like I need a nice change in pace. I've been thinking about exploring other avenues of this whole director thing and maybe try out some more local / small business work.

For example, I've always thought it'd be cool to shoot videos for local coffee shops or promo videos for barbers, stuff of that nature. The music video business is pretty flaky, not that I don't love it but I also feel like I have a lot of other ideas that want to explore and try out. I don't want to lock myself in to just one thing especially when there's so much more to explore. With that being said you will probably see a lot more content from me that's more relevant to my personal life.

I don't know about vlogs but I think I want to start a short adventure series of short films from different places. I want to incorporate a unique storyline to each place and try and create something different every time. I don't know, stay tuned in and you might see it pop up in the near future lol. 

Also, I just ordered a Boosted Board Mini X and I can't f***ing wait lol. Thats definitely going to open up a whole new way to explore and find cool spots to shoot all this sh*t. I will definitely be making a video when I get it in the mail and I might just make a review video for fun lol. 

 I really just feel like having fun and enjoying things in life. I want to create things just to create. I want to have new experiences and I want you guys to be able to watch what's on my mind. I can't wait to bring you guys some sh*t you've never seen before. It's gonna be awesome. Catch y'all in the next blog

Sorry I've Been Gone...

As the video below will explain, I’m not having the best luck ordering my new camera lol. I explain everything in detail in the video so be sure to give it a watch long story short I will never be ordering a camera from Amazon ever again.

Yeah so I placed the order for the GH5s and got next day shipping, two days later the order still hadn’t shipped so I was told to cancel it and order it again. I did that and the same thing happened and the order was delayed but it did eventually end up getting shipped to which I opened it and discovered they had sent me the GH5 and not the GH5s. There is a pretty big difference between the two so I wasn’t very happy to say the least lol. I hope you guys enjoyed this video I got some shoots coming up this weekend so stay on the lookout for some behind the scenes stuff!

I’ll also be in Detroit to shoot a music video on the 23rd so I’ll probably make a vlog type video for that so you guys can see what it’s like to travel and shoot with some BTS. Situations like this can definitely get you down but it is what it is so the best thing to do is to just move forward and deal with it sh*t happens and sometimes there’s nothing you can do. Keep creating I”ll catch you guys again soon!
