“Don’t Say You Do” featuring @oohlalola and produced by @obsidiiancollective premieres tomorrow morning! Lola Blanc initially approached me to help her shoot something simple but beautiful...but a few creative brainstorm sessions later, we threw anything resembling simplicity out the window and began plotting how to take over a mansion in Vegas over one long night and began collecting as many elaborate costumes and interesting characters as possible.
I really don’t direct a lot of things, but this video was one of them that I’m particularly proud of, as well as showcasing what I personally consider to be some of the strongest cinematography I achieved last year. This was also the project I took the time to learn proper color grading with @davinciresolve on and it completely changed my approach to shooting and how I “see” color and light on set now, changing my workflow in such a meaningful way.
Really stoked to share this one with you guys, give it a watch tomorrow if you have a minute! And thanks a million bajillion times to all the cast who stuck it out til the sun came up to make our little video project come true! And especially special thanks to @iiziiofficial who helped me light the fuck out of this, to @deathcats who truly brought the production design to life, to @tashalitas who saved the night many a time from coming to a halt, and to @brycerankins who killed him self all night running 5 departments at once ALL WHILE WEARING A TUXEDO!! Man I got some stories. But that’s for another post..... - 48 minutes ago
