Lady Gaga got nothing on Clifton Billionaire Bell. The funny thing is Bruce shot her before she blew up. Great shoot for artist Khia. Second day at Factory Studios on NYLAHD's Red - which will soon be upgraded. The crew worked seamlessly with multiple set ups and art director Lesley Morphy LAM studios put in work. Looking forward to the commercial work coming up with these guys. Thanks to some known and unknown people. Cliff, Khia, Javone, Mr. Elerby, Bruce, Frank TKONY, Tony, JP, Graeme, David, Kareem, Leslie and Factory Studios. Much more to come.

Awesome shoot for KC Gift. I love directing but if I'm going to produce these guys are at the top of my list. Clifton Bell and Bruce Cole get it - and they appreciate it. With these guys and the right budget we could do some real magic. There is something about working with these two, they are thinkers which translates into the work product. Great shoot, outdoors in Williamsburgh, couple of set ups which doubled as the scene for the video. Followed by studio, rooftop and a trailer to an upcoming video. Shot a Factory studios. Big thanks to KC Gift and crew, Clifton and Javone, Bruce, Frank, Tony, Kareem and everyone else who came out. More coming.

Really great shoot for artist Jenna Andrews principally produced by Roy Lamanna and directed by Chris Stanford. Good directors and producers know who to call in a crunch and we made it happen. DP Karl Kim shot a very cinematic dolly shot into a beautifully lit coffee shop in Williamsburgh. The whole video took place in the coffee shop. Small fun shoot and a great track - definitely looking forward to the edit. Thanks to Jenna Andrews, Island Def Jam, Roy, Chris, Karl, Tony, Chris & Drew. More to come.

Great day shooting with Director Rik Cordero. Have been wanting to work with him for a while. We had a 10 hour day and a relatively smooth shoot. Shot on steadicam all day with a resourceful and efficient crew we got the job done. Looking forward to the edit. I really enjoyed the track and watching Rik work. He is one of the few directors who quietly surveys the parameters and extracts what he wants. He also runs playback with the artist in a very specific way which was new - he knows the shots he wants. Good shoot. Big thanks to Freeway, Rik, Steve Carless, Matt, Sergei, Karl, Rob, Tony, Charlie, JP and the skinny girl.
