ABOUT THE PROJECT

This is my second music video for the Chicago-based Salsa band, Afinca’o. The song title,”Noche de Pasion”, literally translates to a Night of Passion. So, naturally, the band wanted the video to be sexy. I took a few suggestions the band gave me and came up with a concept about a girl and her internal struggle as the underlying theme of the video. We spent quite a bit of time casting our main female role, but once we found Brittany, we were ready to go. The video was shot on a Canon 6D and Zeiss CP2 lenses. It was edited and color graded in Premiere CS6 and Magic Bullets Colorista.
