The New Office!

Ayyeee so let’s get you guys in the loop on the new office space! About a month ago I made a trip up to Cleveland to look at different office spaces for God Media. The last one I looked at stuck out pretty much immediately and I knew it was going to be the new crib lol. I went ahead and signed the lease a couple days later and just got moved in last week. I had so much stuff to order and get in line for it so I had to have my buddy’s help me move and carry it all into the space. There’s still one more “photo” section I want to put up, but other than it’s all put together.

It all came together pretty well (at least I think lol). I am definitely looking forward to creating to my fullest potential here and working on all f the things that I’ve always wanted to. You guys are going to be seeing A LOT more of God Media from this point forward. I have a lot of ideas to move God Media in the right direction and I plan on taking advantage of this space as much as I possibly can in order to build the brand and the movement.


I can’t wait for you guys to see what I have on the way. This is just the first step in a very big move. I’m also holding a link up open house get together type deal so make sure you what out for that on August 4th. Come check out the space and say what’s up. I’m booking visuals at a discounted rate that day so get with me for the address.

The future has a lot in store and I’m ready for you guys to see it and experience it with me. I appreciate everybody that’s been supporting and following God Media. This is just the beginning and we got a long way to go lol.

Behind The Scenes "Stargazing"

Alright so I wanted to give you guys an inside look into a video I just shot called “Stargazing”.

So it started snowing I think around noon on the day of the shoot and we were shooting in Columbus which is about an hour and a half drive for me. I was on my way there and I had to go like 35 on the highway, by the time I finally got down there the roads were even worse.

We went ahead and shot the first scene at J.A.I.’s apartment. I lit it with a Viltrox portable LED light to backlight him, and a quasar science tube as the key light. We brought in a smoke machine and it ended up adding a lot of depth to the couch scenes and overall made it look more cinematic.

The second scene was just right outside the apartment, we ended up kind of getting the scene together on the fly and I had J.A.I. stand in the bed of an F-150 while my friend Scene waved the LED back and forth for a pretty unique look. After that we headed to the final location which was a completely empty parking lot. It ended up being perfect for what I had in mind because we had the space to do it. I got the generator out and held up two quasar science tubes behind the car to act as a backlight and just for style. I made sure to keep the generator behind the car so you couldn’t see it in the shot, and I used the Portable LED on a light stand to act as a keylight for J.A.I.

We got a few shots here, I got a wide shot and then I switched lenses to my Sigma 30mm f1.4 and got some close ups to cut between in editing. I color graded the whole video in Premiere Pro as well I’ve been really impressed with the color develop module as they’ve released updates it’s just gotten way better. I made most of the effects in this video with after effects I’ve definitely been sleeping on it but I’m glad I started utilizing AE into my workflow.

J.A.I. Stargazing Music Video

Yo yoooo so I had the chance to shoot for an artist down in Columbus that goes by the name J.A.I. He’s got some dope music and we ended up shooting a visual for one of his tracks called “Stargazing”. It’s an amazing track with solid flow and a lot of talent behind it so if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet watch it below!

I am super proud of this video even though we only had two hours to shoot it. My buddy Scene ended up comin’ through as well and shot some BTS but that’ll be a for another blog. This whole shoot was an awesome time with good people and good vibes and I hope you guys enjoy the visual.

Check out J.A.I. on IG @j.a.i614 he’s a really talented artist and we’ll definitely have more visuals out in the future!
