After running into Nick Thorburn at a bar and holding back my voracious fanboyism, a couple of weeks later, I got to direct my first music video. Inspiration? Being dumped prior to writing this treatment.
As opposed to just shooting performances on location, we wanted to amplify it up with some effects to keep up with this high energy track. There's even a dolly shot, can you spot it?

LA is a really wonderful city. What better way to spend it than to shoot a music video, causing a ruckus at our Airbnb, and having a great time.
Who doesn't like a documentary? This day in the life inspired video was all shot on location freestyle. We shot at a club, was on a stage with Killer Mike and GZA, and even got to hang out with the Beatnuts.
