Bringing fantasies to life.
The ladies of Canadian country trio, Runaway Angel's approached me to direct the music video for their latest release, "My Someday" a song about living out your dreams
The girls came up with the concept about the three of them having a dreamy day on the beach while their dreams came to life. Scheduled for a two day shoot in early October, we shot over 5 locations in London, St Thomas and Rodney, Ontario.
This is my second collaboration with Runaway Angel, and sixth music video with Stacey. The girls served as producers of the video, overlooking every aspect, scheduling the locations, and also creating and securing all of the props for the video. We worked incredibly well as a solid production crew to get quite a bit accomplished in the very little time we had.
On the technical side, I shot most of this handheld, mixed in with aerial shots shot in each location. It was amazing shooting during magic hour by the airplane. To achieve the "flying" shots with Stacey, her dad stood 10ft in front of the plane holding a leaf blower. Shot all on C300 aside from the drone shots.
