As all of you know I released my first single “LOVE DANCE” it was something I told myself I would do this year, & I’m one of those type of people when I dream it, I make it into a reality. After I released it alot of people and fans asked if there would be a music video. So because “I CAN” is in my vocabulary I got right on it.
First I talked to my friend R3Y GUTI3RRI3Z, we had directed some projects in the past together and if I was to do anything of my own, the one person I could trust and I believe in was him. He was gamed & that put my gears in motion. I then contacted the owner Greg Hauptner of G-STAR SCHOOL OF ARTS where I had done some other projects in the past with, (Dancing on the Edge) he was okay with me filming my music video on his huge lot but there was a big problem, the whole movie studio lot is being turned into South Florida’s largest Halloween Haunted Experience. So I took a drive up to West Palm to take a look at it. When I first arrived I was like…”WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH ALL THIS HAUNTED BACK DROP & MY SONG LOVE DANCE” but instead of being disappointed and down. I came to a brilliant idea…what is something I love more then any thing? HORROR FILMS! and the fact I had this all available to me I was going to turn LOVE DANCE into a mini horror movie music video! It just was perfect scenario in my eyes.
Next I sat down and put together a treatment and skeleton of the music video and the idea. Next step was asking the dancers and some friends of MIAMI to be part of my dream. My leading lady CELINA BEACH, came over to DANIEL & I home and help plot out all the logistics from contacting & schedules for the 20 plus dancers I wanted to be in the video.
Rehearsals started at Iron FLower Fitness with the dancers and my vision was coming to life….then the day of the shoot was upon us…it seemed like everyone was there and people that are so special in my life were enjoying the moment and sharing in my passion. I got a bit teary eyed a couple times, but not too bad, couldn’t let my guyliner run! lol I got up at 6:00am that day of the shoot and wrapped the video at 3:00am..
Hair and make up from the AVEDA TEAM arrived early to get started on me and the dancers. The amazing BEU SISTERS driving in all the way from NEW SMYRNA BEACH do make a special appearance in the video, The photographers Julie, at the beginning of the day, then Mitchell at the end of the day capturing all the behind the scenes. Friends like Kieran and Ricky(along with a couple KICK-ASS G-STAR students) helping to roll in the equipment, that R3Y and I had packed into my jeep, along with all the wardrobe I got from JOEY RALONE “SEXY FUNKY COUTURE”. And then there was Daniel giving me all the moral support and at the same time helping me out to relax and breathe and enjoy the moment as he himself got ready to be in this music video!
At the end of the day we got all of our shots but 2. But we definitely had enough for the music video. The one thing we didn’t finish was the movie part of the music video, the whole reason why LOVE DANCE becomes a horror music video. But no worries nothing stops me from making it happen! You know Daniel & I, along with a couple of friends will be making a trip up to the BEU SISTERS homes soon because I have a alternate intro to the video that I think will work.
I want to share some of the pics from the shoot that day! I’m a dream maker always making everyone’s dreams come true, but this time it was my turn. All those that helped just had me smiling ear to ear.
Never give up on your dreams and when you want something you go after it and make it become a new chapter in your life! dream BIG
