From where can I start telling the marvelous experience we had doing this project?
Everything starts in one of the firsts e-mails Ben sent me. He did one specific question to me,
- "Do you think we can make a musical video?"
- "We totally can, if you guys are willing to act, dance, and convince all your guests to do it!" - I replied.
How could I know by then that everything was going to be in the right place in every single aspect?
Ben dancing skills are beyond usual, Yalda sweetness reminds me a genuine princess of those you can see in any Disney musical, the cooperation of all their guest was similar to having an entire cast of extras of a real movie production. I really must say, a big percentage of the value in this project is totally due to them.
And what about the crew behind the cameras?
Leonardo Batis (my inconditional 2nd shooter, and director of a bunch of scenes), Heidi Sunsdstrom (3rd shooter and young padawan), Sam Perches (cool crane operator, colleague and friend), Luz Magaña (assistant, script coordinator and my beautiful girlfriend!). This project would be completely impossible without any of them.
Thank you to Juan Carlos Tapia to allowed us (and helped us) to take a lot of the time destined to photos to do this. What a better thing for the good of a project than vendors partnerships!
