Just finished directing the 2nd music video of KDJ entitled “I Like The Way” on Majesty 44 Yacht from Royal Blue Coast.

I was slightly worried at the start because of the big waves and the strong wind, the first hour was a struggle trying our best to stabilize the camera but because of the wind and waves we were all over the place.

Then after an hour, we manage to have a good footing to set up the camera, but because of the weather and humidity all our cameras were having their moist on all lenses, we then have to wait for more time until the moist cleared up.

By this time our DOP Mj Madrideo has vomited, his assistant Mike also felt dizzy and decided to have a nap and I hold on well and drunk lots of soda, by the time we reached the Palm Jumeirah area the waves went down a bit, Mj and Mike was better and we started rolling.

During all these our cast headed by Mico Angles, JCJKI Dancers, Ariel Diaz Cativo, Arlene Diaz Cativo, Hyd’z Zehcnas, Olugna Beberly Verana Cativo, were having a great time doing their selfie and rehearsing the shoot, we also would like to thank Francesz Elyssah Marie for the sumptuous cake she made.

While these things are happening, our singer KDJ had all the patience waiting, cajoling, anticipating for everyone’s next move and was so happy on the final result.

As the saying goes “If you have patience it always work out at the end” and that is certainly what happened, the last 30 minutes with the beautiful sunset and that magic hour gave us a mesmerizing time and came out with the magical music video.

It is now under post production and will definitely share it to all of you guys later on.

Nature on RED camera..

This is one of the most inspiring films of nature and time but there are times when I asked myself which came first nature or time?

Creation as we all know it came from words, powerful words, that created the universe I’m sure a lot of you who believes in Darwin’s or Stephen Hawking’s theory will not agree with me, but I am speaking for those who are with me with the simple truth of God’s creation and this film gives us an outlook how marvelous the world and beyond that we are inhabiting.

Colors of awesome hues, captivated in this marvelous camera style by Terence Malick, one of the few directors that I admire, the frames captured seem to breathe on its own, have its own poetic vision, and all I want is to watch it over and over and over again just to make sure it stays on my mind.

Frames so beautiful, it brings tears to my eyes and wants to tell my stories with this work in the background, its also fascinating to know that a lot of these are shot on RED, I was expecting those old PANORAMIC cameras of special gear that can only capture such scenes, but RED, I’ve used RED in a lot of my TVC shoots and I never realize how powerful this camera can go, but after seeing this film, it only reconfirmed my obsession to buy my own RED and make all my films in this camera.

So if you want to see the ethereal beauty of creation, the real colors, the harmony of nature, and the poetic view of life, watch this film.
