making my first music video

the music video for encore was filmed over the course of two days with a group of my friends at various locations around winnipeg. it was produced by allegra chiarella, shot by jesse derocquigny and directed by me! the following photos are a behind the scenes look at those days taken by adam kelly.

everyone was really excited about the shots from the balcony. fun fact - to get the take of me dancing on the top level matt had to drive his minivan super slowly through the parking lot while jesse sat in the back with the camera shooting out of the open sliding door.

the morning of the second day actually started out with a rainfall but we were lucky enough to get some beautiful weather during the evening and a stunning golden hour to cap it off.

allegra did a lot of stretching here. there was also a popcorn fight.

we finished the day as the sun was setting and it all felt very magical because rooftops are like that sometimes.

making this video was such a wonderful experience and i couldn't have worked with a better team on it. my friends are such talented and hardworking people and i'm so happy and proud of what we made together. i hope you like it!!

huge thanks to manitoba film and music for funding this shoot.

love you,
