Eddie Redmayne & Alicia Vikander Discuss The Danish Girl

The Danish Girl posterEddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander are what I like to call “Actors’ Actors.” You know, like a “man’s man” sort of thing. Yes? No? Okay, so when an actor views another actor as a super actor, then there is this mutual respect of the craft which results in major admiration towards the super actor. Not only are Redmayne and Vikander actors’ actors, but they are also quite beloved by the average film watcher. There is no denying that Redmayne and Vikander sparkle on film together, and even when they each stand alone.






Last night, the two said they’ve been running around like crazy attending screenings followed by Q&A for their film The Danish Girl. When they attended last night’s SAG-AFTRA Foundation screening/Q&A at the Landmark West L.A., they were quite winded and mentioned that we were their last audience to visit on their tour.

In the video I captured, you will see that Redmayne talks about an ‘intimate photo’ of himself dressed as TDG character Lily that was leaked to the public before the film’s release. He then talks about the research he did in the trans community for the role of Lily. Finally, Vikander talks about what it was like not being a known actress and everyone asking where her so-called films can be seen (then she comes out with Ex Machina boom! Now The Danish Girl boom!). See the video below:

Shooting “Hopped Up” with The Pagans!

pagans1I recently worked on a music video for punk rock band “The Pagans.” Who are The Pagans? A group of heathen punk rock boys who hailed from Cleveland, Ohio in the early 80’s. Today, The Pagans are still around but the only remaining member from the original band is the lead singer- Mike Hudson.

The newer band members include Justin ‘Lizard Tongue’ Lack on drums, Johnny ‘Babyface’ Dzubak on guitar, Eric Michael ‘Ponyboy’ Schrader on bass and Ben ‘Womanizer’ Reagan on guitar. Fun fact: Richard Duguay, who played guitar on Guns N’ Roses’ “Spaghetti Incident” album, is featured playing lead guitar on The Pagans recording “Hopped Up,” which is the song you are about to hear.

thedramaSo anyway while we’re talking about the newer band members, you should know that Schrader and Dzubak also play in another band together called “The Drama,” which is a moody rock band based out of Hollywood, CA. They are a really fun band to see live, because the lead singer Ashley pulls theatrical surprises including a possible ‘Jim Morrison flash.’ And since we’re talking about Eric Michael Schrader, you should also know that he Directed the music video I am getting ready to talk about!

The music video you are about to see is for The Pagans song “Hopped Up.” We shot it on location at The Art Of Charm School in Hollywood, CA. Schrader along with Kevin T. Miller did the bulk of the shooting. I shot some of the rooftop band performance scenes, did the casting and played the epitome of a groupie coke whore. Check out our other videos on The Enclave Hollywood page

I’d like to give a special thanks to team Clay Coker and Noelle Poulson for doing a fantastic job creating a rock n’ roll ‘night haze’ for the rooftop performance scene. And you know what, a big thanks to everyone who had a hand in working on this video. It couldn’t have been done without you! 🙂

The whole band is featured in the video along with lovely actresses Noelle Poulson, Suzy Williams and Annee Elizabeth. We also got handsome actors Clay Coker and Eric Bakey for the video as well.

Mike Hudson best describes “Hopped Up” as, “A song about a group of people, and one guy in particular, who are just pretty much out of control.” I say it’s, “Where a cool Hollywood band and fame whores unite!” Check it out:

Shooting With Band “The Two Tens”

thetwotensthumbI wanted to share this cute video I worked on for band “The Two Tens.” The song is entitled “Ella Don’t Like My Hat.” HERE are some behind the scenes photos from Day 1 of the shoot at Goorin Bros. hat shop on Melrose Ave. in Hollywood

With production team The Enclave, I assisted for the shoot and also worked as a camera operator. Very blessed and thankful to have the opportunity!

Feast your eyes on some of the most stylish hats in Hollywood, and of course the rad Rikki Styxx and Adam Bones of The Two Tens as they rock out to their song “Ella Don’t Like My Hat”:

The Kicker

1-IMG_5356-003

Desperate for attention
Dying to be heard
The little girl is screaming like a baby bird

She doesn’t really see,
She doesn’t really hear,
Except her own voice drawing her near

Mirrors mirrors mirrors
A lonely reflection
Fears fears fears
Sheer rejection

Drain out the inside
Blood bath flood
Your soul is drowning in the mud

Kick kick
Scream scream
Will she be the queen in her dream?

Mirrors mirrors mirrors
A lonely reflection
Fears fears fears
Sheer rejection
