This one was something special for sure.
Garrett Warren (renowned stunt coordinator for huge pictures such as Avatar, Sin City, Transformers etc. also had a huge helping hand in Krewella "Party Monster" Music Video) texted me out of the blue one day asking if I could help him co-direct a music video for up and coming electronic artist "Party Favor" (Dylan Ragland). Was quick to hop on board being that I knew it would be an extremely exciting project.
After a short phone call between Garrett, Ryan Thomas (Party Favor's Manager), and myself. The concept was set and we moved forward with PreProduction. Original Treatment is below. With about a month to prepare. Garrett, Ryan, and I reached out to everyone we knew to be the best players for the team we were assembling to produce the project. Andrew Amani and Steve Stone did such an amazing job locking down locations and any and all logistics. Was able to have a new friend Brandon Parker DP the shit out of this. Such a talented dude. Garrett Hammond collected the most amazing stunt doubles and coordinate the stunts to really sell the hits we needed. Many more helpful hands were on set and without them this project wouldn't of left the ground.
Between smashing people in the face, drift triking downhill, and being surrounded by such amazing people all coming together for 3 long days to get everything in the bag. This Project was a total pleasure to be a part of and coming away with a ridiculous video and a bunch of new friends. The Bap Squad!
The video was picked up by REVOLT TV and aired for the world Premier on 12/11/14. As well as premiered via the interwebs by Your EDM. Link Below.
