Final Details for the Music Video We Began Shooting Last Month

Today, along with L&C Productions, I went to Becker’s Ranch, a horse ranch near the town of Airdrie. We needed to shoot a few scenes on horseback for the music video we had begun in November. I wore a poncho that one of my beloved aunts had given me several years ago. The rawhide-braided bridle I used on the horse, the jato as it is called, has the silver pieces that were on the bridle of my dad’s godfather, almost a century ago. On camera, Jill Maria Robinson, wore a straw hat from the city of Cajamarca given to me by my nana when I was 4 years old and a shawl from Chachapoyas that belongs to my mother. All this to say that although the filming was done far from many of the people that are dear to me, I was still surrounded by their love.

Filming a Music Video

After days of prep we just finished filming the first music video for the launch of the album – Alma del Ayer.  Can’t say which criollo piece it is yet…the secret doesn’t come out until the launch. Special thanks to L&C Style Productions for the cinematography and production.

 

Also special thanks to the following actors: Stefan Montalbetti, Breanna Palmer, Paula Osorio Ortiz, Myles Shedden, Andrean Kloppenborg, Andrew Plokhii.  I also extend thanks to the following restaurants who shared their space for the project: Vin Room and Buon Giorno Ristorante Italiano.

All that is left is to include a few scenes filmed in the city of Chachapoyas to finalize the production of this music video.
