2013 The year in review!
Well, at the beginning of 2013 I made one of the biggest gambles of my career to stay ahead of the competition. The goal to spend alomost 20,000 on a RED camera and instead of raising my prices with an included huge jump in quality….just shoot more music videos!! After many heart palpitations in the beginning and a successful first half of the year the camera was PAID OFF!! Shwoo, talk about feeling blessed!
It all started in december of 2013 when a call from the Jamaican artist management company Oufah Media requested to shoot 2 more music videos for their premier artist OMI. We had shot 2 music videos for him in the summer of 2012. and I rented the RED which came with a DP, costing several thousand dollars. when it came time to spend several thousand dollars again and a huge price drop on the RED from $40,000 all in to just under $20,000 I had to take a chance and see what happens!
The result was the most successful year to date. Maybe not monetarily but definitely in popularity. With 3 #1 music videos on Hype Tv in Jamaica as well as several articles in newspapers and magazines the word is getting out! Some people may not understand. Especially ones who have been in the film business for years. I’m the a^&hole bringing prices to the floor and shutting down studios left and right….or people like me….I cant take all the credit..:)
Its the 21st century where one man can create visuals on par with hollywood teams…well thats debateable of course. but we try and get as close as possible!
