Behind the Scenes of HAPPINESS

Happiness Shoot 4

Last Wednesday, on an unusually cold and rainy day, a group of talented visual artists gathered in a studio in South East Los Angeles to film the video for my new single HAPPINESS! The short is about the simple joys of a happy domestic life paired with the fantasy of escapist musical performances of the 1930's/40's. Busby Berkeley was a big inspiration for the performance segment of the video - which I really enjoyed shooting. Director Mike Rosenthal's background in Film and Fashion photography made for some beautiful imagery. Here are a few pictures of what ensued.

For the main performance segment I wore a Dior suit and creepers and Jil Sander shirt -

The lovely ladies of LA based dance troop HARLOW GOLD provided the perfect feminine touch.

HAPPINESS is being chopped together as we speak and will be going live in the next couple of weeks!
