Zotti - "U" Break Down

  While looking for music to make visuals with I stumbled across this song. It just grabbed me by the neck and immediately after hearing it I knew I had to make a full length video.  I emailed the artists asking if I could do it, and with his consent I began conceptualising the music video.

Preproduction

 The story is based off a reoccurring dream I used to have when I was a kid. After listening to the song a countless number of times, I mapped when exactly in the video movement would occur with certain beats, cuts, and blocking.

Production

It was shot over the course of four days with a crew of 3 and a cast of 5 in December 2016.

Postproduction

The postproduction work would end up taking a little over a year to finish as I would have to reshoot some of the end shots.
Finally in march of 2018 I would publish the video finishing a fifteen month long process.
