Shoot: Behind the Scenes Music Video Shoot
Artist: Kardinal Offishall
Song: Baby It’s U
Location: Chic Hotel, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Last week I had the pleasure of being invited to shoot behind the scenes for Kardinal Offishall’s Music Video for his latest single “Baby It’s U”.
I met some great people, got to ride shotgun in a dune buggy with the director, eat delicious food, experience the most CHIC hotel… a lot of fun was packed in to those 4 days. But I must say the most rewarding part of this experience was witnessing the force that is Kardinal Offishall. His hip hop ambassador status aside, I felt I was in the presence of an extraordinarily generous & compassionate individual with lots of love & happiness to spread. His positive energy was crazy contagious & I would jump very far & fast at the opportunity to work around him again. Here is just one of the many ways he spreads the good- http://www.freethechildren.com/ I have BIG LOVE for Kardi & all that he puts out in the world!
I am so very grateful to have had the chance to once again see Director Cazhmere do her thing. Making over 100 videos in 10 years, every second around this superwoman is a chance to learn & I do hope she’ll bring me along on more of her adventures!! ( plus she’s a bad ass dune buggy driver!)
BIG Thanks to CHIC Hotel in Punta Cana & the sexy Sunwing Vacations for all of the luxury, comfort, delicious food, incredible customer service & for being the most exciting vacation company of all!
Here are some of our favourite frames from the making of “Baby It’s U”, edited by my partner in crime, Tennille Heinonen.
