With underwater filmmaking, I’m always looking for new and exciting projects to dive into. Recently, I had the opportunity to work on musician Iann Dior’s music video “Complicate It” and it was an amazing experience.
I was blown away by Iann Dior’s natural ability underwater. He was able to perform his scenes with ease and confidence, making my job as an underwater filmmaker so much easier. Lexee Smith, a talented dancer and choreographer, was also incredible to work with, bringing her unique style and grace to the underwater environment.
My Long Beach Underwater Studio was the perfect location for the shoot. With its convenient facilities and deep pool, we were able to create stunning underwater sequences that perfectly captured the mood and energy of the music video. The controlled environment also allowed us to work safely and efficiently, ensuring that we got the shots we needed in a timely manner.
I feel honored to have been a part of the filming of Iann Dior’s “Complicate It” music video. Working with such talented performers and collaborating with the team behind the scenes was an unforgettable experience. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to showcase my skills as an underwater filmmaker, and I look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of what is possible underwater.
