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.

Art Direction for Sports Channel Promo

IMG-2930.JPGIMG-2922.JPGFinished another Art direction for a sports channel football pilot promo and happy with the result as always.

It is always fun to Art direct and builds a set with a team especially once you have something in your mind and vision and see it completed. Also, if you have a good director to work with like Moneer Barakat.

Once again we teamed up with RGB Production and some cast from our last Burger King World Cup shoot and it’s like going back in time but more fun as ever.

The props we used were interesting especially the scarecrow and other items, the whole team is looking forward to shooting the next few series after this wonderful, exciting and commendable pilot.

The camera crew with our DOP Elias and their assistants with Erik and the lighting guys had another wonderful result with ALEXA and the wardrobe, hair & makeup are as always on top of their art form.

Thank you once again, Jibu and Ashwin from RGB Production for another job well done.
