The driven Jorge and and Edgar asked Misha and I to be P.A.’s for an upcoming project.
and I was excited, how could I say no?
The talented Danny Hastings from Atomicus Films would be shooting, for all you spanish music lovers out there, bachatero Toby Love ‘s new music video, Lejos.
The first day we started to set up, I was up and ready to go by like 10 p,m Yes, we were working at night.
Once we got to the location, everything was covered in dust. We had so much work to do.
We needed to make a bar, work on the stage, remove many furniture that just doesnt fit, clean, paint, add lights, and so on.
So we got started.
After all the work we did, we still were not finished. Day two rolled around and we got started right away. Jorge started to paint his speak easy sign while I got a hold of the curtains that are on stage. I have to say, with the limited fabric I had, I think I did them enough justice. ♥
Day three, time to shoot.
I had to go to work, and couldn’t be there by 5am like everyone else. I got to work at 5 am and left by 9am.
I couldn’t miss this. I finally arrived by 10:30am ( long way to Brooklyn ) and everyone was already set up.
I was glad I didn’t miss much.
The wonderful Pia was doing wardrobe and I have to say she did great!
I’ve seen her strut her fashion senses when we were in High School together, in our fashion illustration classes together, and even in our annual fashion talent shows, but things like that are never really the same once you’re rushed and being put under pressure because of timing and one horrible person you have to deal with and answer to.
Yes, I went there. hahaha
Any way, to back to our behind the scenes posts, enough drama.
Toby Love was actually a very chill person.
You could tell he was loved by many , not just because of his twitter stats, but because he was very down to earth, cracking jokes and such kind of dude.
I cannot express enough how much I was glad he was just him and nothing to extravagant.
Hooray for celebrities that aren’t douche-bags!
Can you believe this awesome dress that the female lead Sally was wearing for the Flash back shot was Pia’s High school Prom dress!
It looked amazing on her.
Sally’s acting was on point, especially her face expressions.
Well, I hope you guys enjoyed a sneak peak into this video. I have been holding this post hostage until Gabriel was finished editing all the clips together, so you guys can have everything at once.
Everyone was absolutely fantastic to work with. I had such a great time and experience and I definitely hope it’s not the last.
So enough stalling, here’s the end result. Enjoy, and please don’t forget to visit all the links below that take it back to those who made it happen.
