Over the weekend, I had a fun opportunity to be part of a music video shoot staring the oh so sweet Sophia Moon [talented singer/song writer] for one of her songs Five Star Recovery. I really dig this song, I couldn’t stop bopping to it the entire time. Sophia and I met at the AsianBoston Magazine Model Photo Shoot at the Westin Waterfront hotel. We clicked immediately and decided to collaborate for the beginning of one of her many music videos to come. She’s down to earth, professional and extremely talented. I was so honored to be part of this project. Thanks Sophia! The producer Tony Colapietro and his crew Ania and Lance were all so laid back and friendly that it’ll be a never forgotten experience.
Here’s the link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O14DOuH_GOM
Filming took place inside the CCBA building, a community center in Boston’s Chinatown with Sophia sitting on the window sill performing.
The actual room was like a classroom for a kids after school program [which you would never think based on these images]. It had all these art projects on the wall [that we took down and put back up] and these tiny cute old school desks that were attached to the chairs. Here’s a picture of us all pigging out before filming. It was like grade school lunch time all over again. Tony [producer] seemed to have photoshop his head and replaced it with one of the kids homemade robots – funny.
The video was a casual setting so we aimed for a soft dramatic effect with the makeup [nothing too crazy].
