Over the past few months, I collaborated with some old college friends to produce a music video for Gabe Cruz.
I met Gabe back during my days at UCSD in the Theatre Department. We took vocal class together, and I remember thinking that his sound was very unique. He reminded me of a present-day Johnny Cash in some regard with his deep voice and Americana songwriting.
Our friend, Sam--who directed my Love of Mine music video--texted me one day asking if I'd help with Gabe's project. It was a group of old friends coming together to support our fellow artist and UCSD alum... how could I say no?
We filmed in North Hollywood, Los Angeles during the course of 1 weekend. After being a San Diegan for 5+ years, I never felt so "LA" as I did while filming this project (in the best way possible). Cheers to a rad project!
Also, I want to give a special thanks to my friends at GoodGaff Productions (Dima & Ly). They were awesome camera crew partners on set. Fun fact: Dima was the editor for my Love of Mine music video and will be collaborating with me again on an upcoming project!
My thoughts, writings, and experiments. Big or small. They're here.
