For Number 9 we went out on a beautiful Sunday afternoon (October 27th) to Fort Snelling Park over by the MSP airport and filmed all the shots. I just wanted to incorporate nature. The lake scene turned out beautiful and the motion Tyler created with a little cart gave the video a cool effect with the sun popping through from behind me. I'm pretty stoked about this one and I think that the progression seems to begin to show as these 16's progress.
Im also thinking of running a short 200 CD's printed as like bonus discs with the 16's complete and in order!
So for this 16, I went out and bought some yellow UV contacts. I have been wanting to use some contacts in my videos and I figured since I was remixing Tech N9ne and it is getting close to halloween, it would be a perfect time to throw some creepiness into the mix. I also hit up Michael's and got some paint that I wanted to use in the background...It never worked out so I still plan to use it. I bought a neon shirt and my boy Tyler McBride came out and filmed it. Im so glad to have Tyler on my team. He is dedicated, loves Hip-Hop, and has passion for my ideas. We held up 2 black lights and filmed around them. It was hard to figure out but once we got it, we started to come up with more ideas. I hope my people enjoy this video and you should already know...
For 16 #7 I got a few people together and we went to the old 77 bridge. I had Tyler Mcbride and Derrick Koch both filming this time. It was nice to use two cameras because I could switch from shots & I would be doing the same hand movements so it made the video more interesting. The idea behind the video was that we are all the same yet a little bit different. I don't like being compared to other artists because I am me & there is only one. We all may dress the same or look similar but in reality when put next to each other every person has different qualities. I hope you enjoy this one because I spent a lot of time on it. Thanks to all who is reading and watching.
Proud to say that GrowYourFlow added me as a feature on their website. Come and check it out! There is just a short Bio, A link to my last mix-tape, and my newest 16 is also posted on the page. Much love to whoever may be reading this and I'll see you soon for the next Official 16 Barz music video.
For # 6, I had a friend from Faribault, MN show me this tunnel in the middle of the woods. It was really cool and as we first walked up, I got excited! The video turned out awesome & I believe for one of my full lengths ill go back and get another shot. We got there and a train came so we quick ran in front to get that shot. We basically just had a fun day in the woods filming and goofing around skipping rocks. I found & saved a baby snapping turtle, My filmer saw a snake, We also came across a huge spray painted spider. Good times! I hope you enjoy and please share.
I got creative on this one. We started by just using a black sheet then we got the car involved. Once we figured out we were gonna smoke up the car, we started to get some better shots. Took me 3 days to do it. Sat down for the first day to film. Second day to Edit. The third day was minor edits, exporting, and uploading. Its a lot more work then people think. Hope everyone enjoys it and Im sorry it's taken so long to get done. Enjoy and PLEASE share.
