“Mother’s Day” Behind the Scenes

In all the hype for the release of the “BounceJerk” music video, a day before the release, the “Mother’s Day” music video was released. It almost came out of the “no-where” according to many people. Well it kind of did.

The Wednesday before the BounceJerk Music Video release party (Sat), I called J-High (of Checkmate Films), the director of LEAVIN RUTS BEHIND,  and proposed that we create a music video for my song “Mother’s Day”. He liked the idea and gave me the “ok”. Immediately after I called various mother’s to see if they would be willing to participate in the video. We planned to film the video on Saturday, knowing that the BounceJerk Release party was that night, and that Mother’s day (The day I wanted to release the video) was the following morning.

That Saturday morning at 9am-ish we all arrived at the part to film the video. We finished filming around noon. After filming, I rushed home to port the footage to my hard drive, spent two hours planning out how I would edit the video, and then prepare for the BounceJerk Release Party. After the release party I returned back to my workspace and edited the video until 7am (Mother’s Day morning), and soon after released the video.

It was quite amazing to film, edit, review, and release a music video in less than 24hours and come out with the result we came out with. I’d call this one a accomplishment.

Thanks to all those who took part in the video! (J-High, Phi, Fre, Aunt Cherelle, Tiger, Elijah) We made a masterpiece!

One Love,
