VH1's The Hip Hop Honors 2017: "The Game Changers"
A televised music event, honoring the hip hop musicians & influencers of the 90s. Live performance tributes and appearances by:
Missy Elliot, Pharrell, Lil' Kim, Mariah Carey, to name a few. In addition to Special Icon Awards presented to Hip Hop music video innovator, Director Hype Williams and sitcom star / comedian, Martin Lawrence.
Visual Creative director, Will Heins|Skitch TV brought me on as the sole model featured in this artistic, avant garde video projection screened during the show. The make-up artistry of Pepper B, coupled with Will's creative direction, made it a free flowing and smooth shoot. We played around with various UV make-up combinations, coloured dust, lush neon eyelashes, combined with
my impromptu, bold moves and contortions, guided by Will's artful eye. The result of we 3, was an artistically fruitful collaboration.
This projection was slated to run during Snoop Dogg's song, "Ain't No Fun" and it went off without a hitch
Check out the final result below!
Brian Reisinger's "PEOPLE" series
Art director / photographer, Brian Reisinger embarked on creating a photo series comprised of very human and
emotional photographs capturing the essence of his subjects in a specific state, at a specific moment in time.
I was elated to be a subject in this naturalistic, experimental portrait series.
Gunter and I went on to shoot photographs for my commercial print book as well. The result of both shoots were some fun, free form, classic shots.
