This time last year I was flown out to El Paso, Texas, to shoot a music video for @thegr8khalid's first hit single, "Location." Everything about this experience was indie; I shot the video for two days without a crew, a small single cam, and at night -- a cheap set of Home Depot lights! As I continued to shoot that weekend I got to know Khalid, his home town, and his friends. All of the right energy was there that weekend in El Paso. Dozens of Khalid's friends/classmates pitched in resources, locations, etc as it seemed everyone knew someone special would emerge from that part of the desert. IT WAS ALL SO TRULY INSPIRING! I was falling in love with the footage take by take and the energy -- all at once. I was so enamored by what we were capturing that management elected to have me cut the video in regard of my passion for it. I cut and re-cut that video almost a dozen times last year while Khalid transitioned from indie artist to signed artist with RCA/SONY. Since last fall, the video dropped, Location became a multi-platinum hit, and the video soared well over 100 Million views (and growing). Unsurprisingly, Khalid took home a more than deserved MTV VMA's Best New Artist Award. Furthermore, I learned an insanely valuable lesson, and I think it applies to everyone; No matter what the opportunity looks like, if it feels good in your gut, fuels your passion and it inspires your heart, it's meant to be yours and your meant to do great things with it. @thegr8khalid, may you continue to inspire the world with all of the amazingness you do and spread your incredible message to millions more. You're nothing like any other artist. You truly are in your own lane -- and the world needs it. I am beyond grateful to have gotten the chance to play a small but important part in your incredible journey. Cheers to the road ahead and all of the amazing people I've met along the way.
