Shug : Summertime

Role : Director of Photography
Location: Tuscan, Arizona

Summary:

I've been a D.P. for many projects; however, I must admit most of the work was lost in time. A video shoot that I enjoyed that stuck around was a fun song called Summertime. We set up a real barbeque party with the client's family and friends and shot the video at the park.  I shot that in Tuscan, Arizona. This was part of a music video project Bigg Sixx and I collaborated in, whereas we made independent music videos of west coast hip-hop artists from the '90s.
