Let's go behind the scenes of making the "Have Mercy" video in photo essay form...Ready?
Why would you do a video shoot/painting session without a solid spread of food & drink? Hint: There's no good answer to that question.
We filmed at my apartment where I love to make a peaceful, comfortable space for people where creativity can flourish, vulnerability is natural, and fun is easily found. These things seemed extra important for such a night as this, so I got excited and kind of went all out.
Sidenote: "Have Mercy" was written in the apartment and appropriately shot here as well.
Britney Winn Lee hard at work on the watercolors. She's my first call for watercolor work, but I guess her primary creative medium is words. Read some of the gems at britneywinnlee.com.
She picked a good one to tie the knot with a couple years ago. Luke Lee of Fusiform Design Workshop is an amazingly talented and generous friend who skillfully shot and edited the whole "Have Mercy" video.
A huge thank you to Luke and Britney for their time and efforts. I'm happy to share this video with you all and look forward to more of all this in the near future! Thanks for reading/watching/listening/caring...
