Official music video for Maria Del Pilar's 'Motivation'.
Thanks to Samantha King and Kirk Kuppig for the shooting assistance. This video was shot with the idea of keeping the effects primarily in camera to cut down on editing and compositing time. Rear screen projection, miniatures, a paper-mache tree in the backyard, my three fog machines and a bunch of friends helped make this happen. I got a little overzealous in the editing room and added quite a bit of effects-but I feel it retains a handmade quality in counterpoint to the modern club sounds from my good friend Pilar's new solo album. Pilar Diaz can also be heard singing the track to my 'Flying Rat' film which I composed and directed as well.
Costumes designed and constructed by Oscar Delacruz
