WE DID IT!!
Yesterday, I finished shooting my first film project with one of my best friends, Mehmet Aksoy, and my super wonderful and charming fiance, Tyler Russell. I directed the project as well as acted in and edited it, Mehmet starred in the video, and Tyler operated as our cinematographer and assisted me with the editing. I haven’t quite finished putting the final touches on it, but I would be lying if I didn’t say I was stoked about this. The project consists of a music video to the song “The Night We Met” by Lord Huron (I do not in any way own the rights to this song. This video was not produced for monetary gain, but for the final for the On Camera class I am taking). Within the video, we see as a man walks back in time through his relationship with his ex-lover, all the way back to the night they met.
Getting to direct/produce my own film project was a very new, but exciting, experience. I of course had an awesome team to work with, but I learned a lot about the different shots and kinds of things that are necessary to make a music video successful. If you are interested in checking out some behind the scenes photos, go stop by my Upcoming Projects page where the video will be posted in the next few days.
