Do you think this is the start of creating more music videos?
Haha, great question! I’ve been telling my wife that the plan is not to build a career around making music videos at which she just chuckles, saying that “well, it seems like you’re going the opposite direction”.
Personally, I love doing music videos. They are the kinds of projects that allow you to be as expressive as you like and push you to experiment with little more than what’s usually needed to pull off miracles! They don’t always make you good cash, but the memories, experiences, friendships and products birthed from these projects are worth more than all the money. I believe in the journey and if music videos become my thing, heck I’m in!
What challenges did you face producing this music video?
Challenges come in unique shapes and sizes! There weren’t many hick-ups as we took a lot of time with the pre-production of the process. The things we found most challenging we couldn’t have predicted… like the Skyline’s alarm: when we left for the shoot at 04:00, the car’s immobiliser went off and we couldn’t stop it! Mad funny! Safe to say, a few of those neighbours I mentioned earlier are still not sure why we were trying to rob a Skyline early morning!
The other crazy one was the chair we had planted in the water, which was holding up just fine until it decided to plonk sideways as Tresor was standing on the chair wearing a very expensive styled outfit. Fortunately, Marguerite was right in front of Tresor at that moment to catch him… PRICELESS!!
