Working with Neon Trees

Post Represents: Monday, February 13, 2012

A couple days prior to this shoot, I was in a highly desired dilemma. On Friday, I was being acquired for two different music videos. The other group was named Fyre??? (spelling check needed) and they wanted me for Sunday and today (Monday). Not only were they going to pay me for two days they told me they really wanted me and I was going to be a feature. I tried to just go in for Sunday but two days were mandatory. It would of been nice to do two music videos in a weekend but not this time.  I stuck with the music video that contacted and followed up with me first. The bands name is Neon Trees. I wasn't familiar with them by name until today. There hit single is named "Animal." I'm confident I've heard it on the radio before.

The name of this music video I'm a part of is called "Every Body Talks."

Shoot Location:
Cadillac Jacks/Pin Cadillac
9475 San Fernando Road

Final Thoughts

I'm glad I ended up doing this project. Its not about the money or the face time. Its about being loyal and building relationships. Besides, I met a lot of cool people today and since I didn't accept the other music video  was able to attend a great event last night. I have a feeling one of my connections from last night with emerge. Everything in my quest has reason and purpose in it.
