Spice 1 – Sideways
This is a music video we did for SPICE 1 and Layzie Bone. Sacramento and the surrounding areas was our back drop and we used the Red EPIC camera and a small crew with only a couple lights. It was a pretty run and gun shoot with almost entirely “found” locations. Nevertheless, it was good to meet and work with some rappers that we used to listen to while we were coming up as young filmmakers. Marshall Day directed and edited the video and Jeremy Owen was the gaffer.
