Ill Essense I’m The Man Music Video Shoot
The I’m The Man music video is the second project we’ve worked on with Orlando rapper Ill Essense. The song features Orlando artist Wes Fif. It would be the first music video that the two have collaborated on since DJ Young Legend’s “Legendary” music video shoot in March 2010. The pre-production for this video compared to our previous project, Gettin 2 It was a little more precise. Every frame was mapped out before the day of the shoot. The chorus has Ill Essense rapping 200 miles per hour, so we wanted to have cars emulating 200 miles per hour. The video was a two day shoot. The performance shots were all on day one and the B roll scenes were day two.
We shot scenes with a white background at the Suite 200 Music Group studio. That was a first and was a lot of fun. The rest of the scenes were shot in the Downtown Orlando area. We had a few new toys to play with to assist with the cinematography. Also for the first time we used a makeup artist and it definitely helped out a lot. That makeup artist was Colleen Gagnon and she did such a great job! This was a team effort and we all worked hard to get what we wanted. The final edit turned out to be what we wanted it to be. We hope that you enjoy it as much as Ill Essense did.
