I directed, produced and co-edited this entire project. With a limited budget, I created the props and wardrobe while casting and location scouting.
When Mario Rubalcaba from Earthless approached me to make their first music video, he played the track Volt Rush and I instantly visualized someone bombing a hill on a skateboard with a cape flapping in the wind. From there a story was built encompassing the band's roots and native surrounds of San Diego.
THE PICTUREBOOKS-"I NEED THAT OOH"
I was the assistant director, working with a team to create a story-board, conceptualize, and location scout.
The premise for this music video was to capture the Americana essence. Picture Books, a two piece band hailing from Germany, love the motorcycle “Easy Rider” life style. Naturally, the video was set on the open roads of Yucca Valley.
INNERVISION ELEMENT SKATEBOARDS
I directed, produced, co-edited and co-filmed this entire project. Working with a team in Japan to event coordinate and location scout opened up a new change for me.
As opposed to traditional product collaborations that often focus on the artist, creative process, or finished product, the idea behind INNERVISION is to capture a new perspective between the artist and the brand, by creating a unique dialogue that opens the campaign up to more than just skateboarders and invites the viewer to join in on the creative process. Accompanied by Element team riders, Mason Silva, Evan Smith, and Sascha Daley, BB traveled to Japan for the global premiere of the INNERVISION deck series and to host the INNERVISION art show featuring collaborative works by him and Hiroyuki Uemera. The deck series features art for the spirit animals of Mason Silva and Sascha Daley, along with a Wolfpack team edition.
