Day 50



The Serious Manizzle pulled together a blinding performance for the shoot the weekend before last when we shot their first music video. Unfortunately, lacking the ability to be in two places at once, I was unable to shoot both the video and the “making of” the video which could have been quite a fun doco in itself. Though with some quick “to camera” sections, some outtakes and a sneak peak at the edit in progress you might get an idea of what it was like to shoot a music video in Africa. With no occupational safety and health authority to speak of, the serious men performed from a converted motorbike taxi for about 4 hours, don’t ask me how they managed to stay on… oh wait…

I'll be sure to post the completed video when it is finished, and hopefully try to get it screened in New Zealand!

Hey James!
Really loving watching your video blogs, they're "o" for awesome! You really are living the opportunity of a lifetime. Those time-lapse ones near the start of your trip were great (map of the world). We hope you're getting some great footage for the doco, and we look forward to seeing you back in Auckland in January.
Take care and keep up the great work.
Paul and Luisa

Thanks guys, yeah I really just wanted to come and make rap videos for brother from the street. If only I knew what they were singing about, or perhaps it's better I don't
