"Damn, yous a sexy mutha uhuh, baby, would you be my lover?"
One day. One gimbal. One soul singer with one hell of an afro, and one fine mamacita with eyes that one couldn't despise. Such are the components of the Femi Onas video I shot for his banger "Would you be my Lover?".
What did I learn from this shoot? that I'd like to do more music videos. Some of the first content that inspired me to pick up a camera were music videos from the likes of The Weeknd and Young Thug, and being able to be behind the camera on that sort of project was quite the ride.
We dashed around Brooklyn in a Suburban from 8 am to 7 pm, and truthfully the whole day felt like a few hours. The director kept the schedule tight and the production moving with poise. We used primarily natural light, which was fitting for this video, but left me daydreaming about what I could do in a studio.
