"Supertalents" Video Shoot
This past weekend Mista Cookie Jar & the Chocolate Chips team began production of the music video for our song Supertalents off the our album, the Love bubble. The song features my homie, Gregory Brown of our acoustic duo, the Gypsy Twins. Our friends, Chris and Stacy of Market Street Productions are directing and producing the video--and an impressive job they are doing! Having worked with them for our video, Magic World, we just know Supertalents will be just as magical. Chris is using a 3d video camera that came out last week and from what I've heard, this will be the very first 3d music video with this camera! The setting of the video will be in a galactic arcade game come to life. The Chocolate Chips (Ava and Lucas) will be sucked into the video game where they meet Greg and I, their astro tour guides so to speak. Many green screen shots, including some of Greg and I flying on harnesses. We also filmed some shots at Vasquez Rocks, where many sci-fi Hollywood flicks (like Star Trek) were filmed. Our friend Javarnanda is down to rock some 8 bit animation for this one!
Also featured are some young dancers from Michael Jackson's Elementary School (!), Gardner Street Elementary, Shania, Ashanti, & Jaylan. Many thanks to these supertalented kids and their mom's for coming through. Shania & Ashanti's mother, V, is actually a DOPE Puerto Rican rapper...hip hop and reggeaton! Keep your eyes out for this rising star.
Stay tuned for the release date...we're shooting for around this Christmas season!
