“New Day” by Shaun P.

No screenplay needed for this music video. I started with an idea for masked men and built around that. The homage to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly that opens the video followed. Then maybe a sequence in an old school car. And let’s end it with a fire. And we were off. We filmed it all over two evenings. Shaun P. had the idea to switch the soundtrack to another song on his album in the middle of the video, an ode to hip-hop music videos from a decade ago. He also suggested the behind-the-scenes tag that appears after we fade to black. As of this writing, I consider this and Alumni’s “(Take A Walk On) My Side” to feature my cleanest and most confident camerawork.
