Its been a while. Updates, a bunch of them, coming soon.
So I feel like everyone in the world is jamming this track right now …and they should be. It’s such a great pop song and the video compliments it so damn well. The video was directed by the great Melina Matsoukas.
Anyway I did some digging and found these little gems. Mood boards from the conceptualizing stage of the video. It’s great to look at it and to see how it translated to the video.
Heyo, I am going to try my best to update this as I am working and not just to post things that are done.
What have I been up to? Well… adjusting to my recent move to the city of LA. And I do mean adjusting. Holy hell it’s crazy over here…but in the best way possible. Aside from that, I shot a short film back in Austin before I left so I am finishing that up with my partner in crime Max K. over at NEATO. Currently it’s called “Bus Fair” but I am terrible with titles so I am sure it will change. Below are some quick screen grabs of the short. It was challenging to shoot on a bus that was still in use for two days but man, intense and so much fun.
