Blaze Up Music Video


I got in touch with hip hop artist Shady Blaze through the owner of Thizzler on the Roof, a popular Bay Area hip hop blog. I thought his music was awesome, and he had just came out with a new album, prime time to make a music video.

I shot it around Oakland with my friend Lawrence. We just shot where we could as we didn't scout the locations beforehand. I then took all the footage, reviewed it and loaded it into Final Cut while matching the audio track, did some color adjustments and hit render.

The video was featured on Thizzler on the Roof and other sites. Shout out to Shady Blaze, his crew, and Matt from Thizzler.

Tools used:
Canon 5D Mark II and 7D
Canon 50, 16-35 and 24-105mm
Final Cut Pro
Apple Compressor
