HOW IT ALL CAME TOGETHER
Making the music video started off with an idea I had to surf a car. First I researched to see if I could find any videos of cars being pulled upside-down. And then I worked out the idea with Nick Rondeau on how we were gonna cut it together editorially.
I like to draw all of my own story boards, and even cut together a Pre-Visualization so I can explain to everyone exactly what we are trying to make.
After discussing with our Producers, Douglas Kerr and Jackie Calleiro what our possibilitie are, We then get Bryan Mccoy involved- our stunt expert. Douglas and Bryan worked out all of the rules and ways we could film the car flipping onto its roof , and then drag it down the street upside down...
I didn’t want any CGI and wanted to have MGK really surf the car. Here’s sneak into BTS and a few of my sketches from the storyboard on how we made the video!
