I would like to make a small yet huge statement...most of you know that I've been on this grind of music/dance/entertainment for many many years. For the majority of those years I've stumbled, fell, got back up and repeated the process...always listening to my heart even when I was looking hella wobbly bambi legged out lol. I always felt awkward in my skin. There's much more work to be done, BUT the last few video projects I've been able to become more comfortable and find that place of control and security. Especially with this last project "Dabbin." I attribute that to a few groups of ppl involved with this project.
My choreographers/dancers Kentrell Newton and Dominic Byrd were incredible to work with. Everything happened organically, from the first rehearsal to the performance. No judging...no egos....just being down to create dope shit. All of our experiences combined and our friendship allowed us to just create quickly and with no stress...THIS IS SO RARE! I'm ecstatic to begin on our next video!
My cameraman Eric Nelson is magic. Being able to move freely and embrace the camera...knowing he understands/anticipates my movements and how to best capture them gives me a huge advantage when I get to post-production...that is something that is COMPLETELY UNDERRATED.
And lastly, all of you that came for the final scene in Hollywood. From your solos to just hyping up the scene...please believe me when I say that your contribution made a gargantuan difference. Not only just by being there but by being there with the right energy...I felt your positivity and that allowed me to be on my level. It's also something that the audience can subconsciously feel.
You ALL were a part in helping make a dream of mine a reality. I sincerely thank you.
