Roles: Producer / Director / Editor / VFX


Willy Torres


Latin Street Records




Willy Torres is a 4-time Grammy award winning musician that first found fame through the massively successful Spanish Harlem Orchestra. Willy is now making a name for himself as a solo artist and needed a music video to introduce his energetic performance style to the world. The focus of the shoot was to give the audience a sense of what it might be like seeing WIlly and his band play live at a salsa night club.

This video was shot on a Panasonic GH4 and Zeiss lenses. It was edited and color graded using Premiere CC with VFX done in After Effects CC.
