Back in July 2016, a friend of mine (Louis Frost of Silver Lining Pictures) threw down the gauntlet and challenged me to write, record and film a music video for a Rap. The only rule was that it had to be about the word “awesome”.
so I set about it, first thing I needed was some music. Now I could put something together with my guitar but I had another mate who I new would have something I could use, who just so happened to be the producer of the blackout crews Put a donk on it. Check out the video.
Music sorted, wrote the wrap, recorded the vocals and mixed it, then with less than 2 days to go, I proceeded to film the video on my trusty iPhone 6. Heres the result.
As an aside, amazingly this music video has been accepted into the indiewise film festival!!
And I suppose I should also post what I was up against…. however the thumbnail is purposely smaller….:)
But anyway, of the back of Jack rap, CBBC asked me to write and film another rap for inclusion in a Gameshow pilot me and Lucy were involved with. Credit goes to Tony Sabanskis again for the music.
