Hey Boy
Role: Producer
This music video is an homage to Starline Social Club and its people in Oakland, California. Directed and illustrated by Ghostly artist Brijean, with animation by Rose Biehl, Hey Boy is a dreamy dance-pop valentine that was as fun to produce as a night at the club.

This shoot was as dreamy as it looks. Seven people dancing in an amphitheater that holds 8,500. 

With the help of local agency Another Planet, we took over the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California to film the first single off of her new EP, Summer Quarter. I filmed this video with Kyle Chater on the drone and co-produced with Sarah Zweig of Another Planet.
