Lloyd Banks Featuring Juelz Santana Beamer Benz or Bentley - Director Broadway, 2 Unit Jesses Smith, Producer G-Unit & Brendan Cochrane

Probably one of the best shoots that I have been on. The track is banging and the crew was on point. This project literally came together at the last minute for various reasons. G-Unit and Director Broadway reached out knowing that if anyone can put together a solid production at the 11th hour NYLAHD can. Building on Crime Wave and Flight 187 this video takes production value to a whole new level. The video is going to be hot. Cleanly shot with a solid production crew that used two studios at RootBrooklyn with double Red's and steadicam it was an involved production with cars being moved in and out while cast and crew would rotate studios. Big thanks and much respect to G-Unit, Lloyd Banks, Juelz Santana, Maino, Beanie Sigel Director Broadway, Second Unit Director Jesses Smith, DP Karl Kim, Sergei, Kevin, Kareem, Tony, Charlie, Latin, Root Brooklyn studios and everyone who came out. Thanks to MCM for walkies they make it happen. Stay tuned more to come.

Soho International Film Festival

A great opening night for the Soho International Film Festival founded by Justin Ballos & Luis Pedron. The place was packed. Great to see some talented filmmakers and the start of what will surely be a pretty big festival circuit. Looking forward to getting a feature into a festival like this. Stay tuned more to come.

Artist Sean Avolio "All Up in My Candy" Directed by Ben Jacks The Jacks Firm

Director Ben Jacks who is also a DP reached out to NYLAHD for Red, Super Speeds, & tech support for his latest music video for artist Sean Avolio for the track "All Up in My Candy" All I can say is Ben has a keen eye and is meticulous for detail which is one of the reasons why I like working with him. I also developed a new hobby set photography. I think I shot 2000 pictures on the 7D raw. I can definitely see myself doing more photography. The shoot was great, the cast, location, stylist, and choreographer were on the money. Let's just say they were "All Up in My Candy" thanks to everyone who was a part of this - great seeing old faces. More to come.
